8 Bowel Cancer (Colorectal Cancer) Signs That People Should Not Ignore

Are you having digestion problems, abdominal pain, cramps or you lost 10 or more pounds in the last 2 months without explanation? This article is written for you then! Even if it’s not the case, what you learn here, may save your life someday!
Every year, 140.000 patients are diagnosed and 50.000 die of Bowel Cancer in the US. Although the death rate from bowel cancer is continuously decreasing for the past three decades because of early detection (screening programs) and the treatment improvements, it remains to be one of the three leading causes of cancer death. Just like in case of any other cancer, the sooner the diagnosis is established, the greater chances of full recovery.

9Weight loss

Cancer patients in some cases experience unintended weight loss (particularly bowel cancer patients). If you can’t explain it by a diet or a workout and if it’s higher than 10 pounds within the last 2 months, ask your doctor for advice. Thyroid gland hyperfunction and some other common and benign medical conditions may cause weight loss, so don’t panic, just ask your doctor for advice.
