The lower part of the digestive system is known as the large intestine (colon), and colon cancer is the name given to the type of cancer that affects it. The rectalcancer is the cancer that affects the last few inches of the colon. Collectively they are known as colorectal cancers. In most of the cases, small, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells called adenomatous polyps are formed in the intestine. They are not harmful on their own, but over a period, they enlarge to become colon cancers. Let us have a look at the early symptoms.
Polyps and the symptoms
Polyps are very small and do not display symptoms on their own. Doctors advise regular screening test to find polyps and destroy them before they can aggravate to colon cancer. In most of the cases, the symptoms start to appear only in the advanced levels. These include:
- Changes in the bowel movement: There can be severe diarrhea or constipation. There can also be changes in the consistency of the stool.
- Blood clots in the stool: There can be a persistent bleeding when passing out the stools. In some cases, there can be a general discomfort and pain while passing the stool.
- Severe abdominal discomforts: Abdominal cramps and gas can be a regular occurrence. They would not respond to any digestive medications.
- Weakness or fatigue: The body tends to get weak and fatigued easily. Even performing essential activities can be a daunting task.
- Unexplained weight loss: Even after a proper diet, the body tends to lose weight. Weight loss can be categorized as one of the advanced stages of the disease.
The symptoms vary drastically depending on the size of cancer and the location in the large intestine. It is advisable to consult an oncologist if the symptoms mentioned above persist and it is also mandatory to have regularized screening after the age of 50.
There are also certain important factors that have to be looked that may increase the risk of colon cancer. These include:
- Old age: It usually affects people more than the age of 50. Chances of it occurring in young people are very minimal.
- Inflammation of the intestine: Chronic inflammatory diseases of the intestine such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease can increase the risk of colon cancer.
- Genetics: Chances are that the genes could be passed on through the generation and family; thereby enhancing the likelihood of colorectal cancer.
- Diet: Fatty foods and foods that are low in fiber content can be one of the causes of colon cancer. People who are overweight and obese also increase their risk drastically.
- Smoking and alcohol: Smoking and drinking in excess levels increase the chances of getting colon cancer.
Hi. I am 31 years old women. Last two days, my urine become reddish. I consult to doctor and found 2.7 mm stone in my kidneys. She prescribed my medicine for one month. Stone will release after one month. I want to know that stone will generate again if it release? Or can I plan pregnancy along this medicine.
Do you find it impossible to control the urge to urinate every now and then? If you feel the need to urinate more than 8 times a day, then it could be a health problem. Frequent urination is the medical term for this problem. The condition is not the same as urinary incontinence, where there is leakage of urine.
A number of habits can play a role in causing frequent urination. This includes drinking more fluids and consumption of caffeine-based beverages. However, the condition may also be a sign of an underlying kidney disorder.
Relation between frequent urination and kidney problems-
While frequent urination is itself not a serious problem, but it can be a symptom of kidney or ureter problems, urinary bladder problems, or diseases such as diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, or prostate gland problems.
Frequent urination is linked to a number of kidney problems such as:
Kidney infection (pyelonephritis) is a type of urinary tract infection (UTI) that normally starts in your urethra or bladder and travels to one or both of your kidneys. Frequent urination is often the most common symptom of pyelonephritis.
Sometimes, hard collections of salt and minerals get accumulated in the form of stones in your kidney(s). These may increase in size in a ureter or the bladder. When the stone passes down the ureter, you may have an urge to urinate frequently.
c. Renal hypertension
If you suffer from renal hypertension (high blood pressure) or fluid buildup in the kidney, then your doctor may prescribe you medications that are used to treat and flush out excess fluid from the body. These medications can have a diuretic effect and may lead to frequent urination.
Feeling the urge to pass urine can be a symptom of many different problems. But if you experience the condition along with other abnormal symptoms such as fever or pain in abdomen, then you should consult your doctor immediately.
Your kidneys perform multiple functions inside your body. But their main responsibility is to filter waste and remove extra fluid (urine) from your blood. Sometimes, kidneys stop working like they should. If they stop suddenly, you have what doctors call acute kidney failure (or acute renal failure).
Given that the disease develops rapidly, it is important for you to know the reasons responsible for it.
What are the causes of acute renal failure?
The disease usually affects your kidneys when you are experiencing one of the following conditions:
a. Impaired flow of blood to kidneys
A number of diseases and medical conditions may slow blood flow to your kidneys and lead to kidney injury. These may include: excessive loss of blood, heart attack, infections, liver failure, severe allergic reaction, major burns, severe dehydration etc. Intake of certain medications to manage blood pressure is also linked to the disease. Similarly, use of aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, or similar drugs can also cause acute renal failure by reducing flow of blood to the kidneys.
b. Blockage of urine in the kidneys
If your kidneys' urine drainage tubes (ureters) become blocked, then it can lead to acute kidney failure. You are at an increased risk if you suffer from cancer of bladder, cervical, colon or prostate. Medical conditions such as an enlarged prostate, stones in kidneys, blood clots in your urinary tract or nerve damage in your bladder can also cause acute renal failure.
c. Direct injury to kidneys
Certain diseases, conditions and agents can damage your kidneys which in turn can lead to acute kidney failure. These include:
Blood clots in veins and arteries in and around your kidneys
Cholesterol deposits that block blood flow in the kidneys
Alcohol, heavy metals and cocaine
Glomerulonephritis (inflammation of tiny filters in the kidneys)
Now that you are aware about the causes of acute renal failure, you should also know that the disease is usually reversible. If you're otherwise in good health and get treatment without delay, then your kidneys may go back to normal functioning.
