Causes and Symptoms of Colon Cancer Which Should Not Be Ignored

If you see any such problem, contact the doctor immediately. Through this article, we will try to give complete information related to colon cancer to you.

The stomach (gastric), esophagus, small and large intestine together make up the digestive system. Digestive problems can be a sign of many dangers. Colon cancer is also a problem related to digestion. Recently, Bollywood's famous actor Irrfan Khan died of colon cancer. The early symptoms of colon cancer are abdominal pain, change in stool color, etc.

The large intestine in our body is about 1.5 meters long. It starts from the colon and ends in the rectum and anus. The walls of the colon and rectum have four layers of cells. Colon cancer occurs when these cells grow uncontrollably in the body. It starts from the inner lining of the walls of the large intestine. Most colon cancer begins with small polyps. These polyps are a group of small cells. Doctor Kunal says that if the symptoms of colon cancer are recognized and treated in the beginning, then it is very good for the patients. But the sad thing is that most people ignore the early symptoms of colon cancer and get it treated at the last stage of cancer. Especially women ignore the bleeding in the stool, they consider it a normal problem. But it is not so, if you see even mild symptoms, then go to the doctor immediately.
