According to a report published in the Express website, people over the age of 60 and over are at greater risk of infection.
Bowel cancer also increases the risk of colon cancer, which is part of the large intestine, while the rectum is the passageway that connects the colon to the anus.
According to data from the Macmillan Cancer Support Foundation, about 41,000 people develop cancer in the large intestine each year.
Symptoms of colon and colon cancer include:
1- The presence of blood in the stool.
3. Unexplained diarrhea or constipation that lasts for three weeks or more.
4. Unexplained weight loss.
5. Pain in the abdomen.
6. Back pain.
7. A feeling that your bowels are not emptying properly after a bowel movement.
8. Unexplained fatigue, dizziness, or shortness of breath.
The report emphasized that if a cancerous tumor caused a blockage of the intestine, you may feel bloating, abdominal pain and vomiting, as the American Cancer Society confirmed that narrowing of the stool that lasts for more than a few days can be a warning sign of bowel cancer.
Once diagnosed, the main treatment options for bowel and colon cancer are established, which is surgery that is performed in the early stages of colon cancer, through which the cancer is removed from the intestine along the boundaries of healthy tissue, known as local resection.
