Colon Cancer - Causes And Warning Signs

MBBS
General Physician, Patiala
Colon Cancer - Causes And Warning Signs

Colon cancer is cancer that starts in the large intestine (colon). In most cases it begins as a non-malignant group of cells called polyps, which may turn cancerous over time. After the formation of the malignant tumors, the cancerous cells may spread to other parts of your body through lymph and blood channels. It can occur together with rectal cancer and is known as colorectal cancer.

Causes of Colon Cancer

The occurrence of colon cancer may depend on the presence of precancerous polyps in the colon. Adenomas polyps may turn cancerous, but are removable through colonoscopy. Hyperplastic polyps rarely become cancerous, whereas inflammatory polyps may become cancerous after the inflammation of the colon.

Other risk factors that may influence the occurrence of colon cancer are,

  • Genetics: About 20% colon cancers are thought to be caused by mutation of the genes.
  • Age: Those over the age of 50 are more likely to develop colon cancer, though now it is also increasingly affecting younger people.
  • Lifestyle: It is more likely to affect people who lead a sedentary lifestyle, smoke tobacco or are obese.
  • Diet: It is more likely to affect those whose diets are high in red meats, calories, and fat while being low in fiber. Alcohol consumption may also affect its occurrence.
  • Medical conditions: People who suffer from diabetes, acromegaly (growth hormone disorder) and colitis etc, may also be prone to develop colon cancer.

Warning Signs of Colon Cancer

Colon cancer generally goes undetected in the early stages. The symptoms vary with the location, spread and size of the tumor. In the earlier stages of cancer, most people experience no symptoms, but in the later stages they may experience one or more of these symptoms:

- Change in bowel habits such as diarrhea, constipation or change in consistency of stools; lasting more than a month
- Blood in stool or bleeding from the rectum
- Pain during passage of stool
- Pain, cramps or gas in the abdominal region
- Frequent urges to pass stool
- Weakness
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Anemia
- Unexpected weight loss

However, these symptoms may not necessarily indicate colon cancer. They can occur in the absence of colon cancer too. It is confirmed by colonic biopsy and histopathological examination. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

Pea 4.2 2 years back then 3.75 6 month back 5.7 usg report 3 years back grade 2 prostate.
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The normal prostate size for an adult male is 15cc to 30cc (one half ounce to one ounce). Men whose prostate gland is larger than 30 cc are more likely to be diagnosed with either benign hyperplasia (enlargement) or prostate cancer than those whose prostate is in the normal range. Please work with your doctor for treatment. Take care.

A cyst if benign in nature and not obstructing your sperm count is best left as it is. However Mr. bhaskar you must understand that the gravity if this problem can not and should not be dealt without any detailed investigations. For best results you must consult your surgeon. For more details do consult me online.

Do chickens and cows get cancer? And if so, is it dangerous to eat cancerous meat?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Animals do get cancer but it is unlikely that it can be transmitted by Eating animal meat. One should eat properly cooked meat to avoid infection but cancer is not a communicable disease and it doesn't survive in dead cells.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, not every acute pain, in and around anus, is due to cancer. I would advise that you consult a gastro-intestinal (GI) specialist or any general surgeon to clinically examine your condition and recommend treatment apropos. For the time being, ensure to have a healthy & balanced diet (preferably Mediterranean) including fresh leafy greens and fruits. Especially, fibrous foods help avoid constipation issues, if any. Also, stay well hydrated, exercise daily and relax. Take care to not strain while passing stool. Post going to toilet, you may sit for a few minutes in a bowl of clean and luke warm water to which a few drops of 'dettol' solution is added. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

Hiii Osmf is precancerous condition So there chances of occurring cancer only after advanced stage of osmf Or There are also chances of occurring cancer in early stage of osmf?

The accessory Breast can be removed surgically if size is causing problems. Most likely you are suffering from mastalgia which is usually accompanied by fibrocystic disease. It is pain due to hormonal stimulation of the breast tissue. It may resolve spontaneously with pregnancy. Reassurance and supportive sports bra (especially in large breasts) have shown to be effective in most women. Usually Vitamin E 400 mg 2-3 capsule daily or/ and Evening Primrose Oil 2000-3000 mg daily Containing 240-360 mg GLA which comes to is the initial amount prescribed for 2-3 months. If response is good then the dose may be decreased for 3 more months and then stopped. The symptoms may never recur. But relapses are also known. If there is no response to above, then we usually shift to Danazole, Bromocriptine or SERM (tamoxifen or ormeloxifen) Bromocriptine is costly and causes nausea, vomiting and headache. Danazole has troublesome androgenic side effects. Tamoxifen is known to cause DVT or cataract but usually for long term or higher dose of 20 mg, which is given in breast cancer. We recommend 10 mg daily for 3 months. Ormeloxifen is the indian drug previously called centchroman or Saheli. It is usually given as 30 mg daily or alternate day schedule. Some patients may develop ovarian cysts on daily schedule. It works well with non cyclical as well as cyclical mastalgia. Some prefer it as the first line of treatment. If you need further clarification, feel free to contact me directly.

My grandfather is suffering from 4th stage of oral cancer and has tracheostomy and peg tube and the phlegm is so much and smelly too which we have to suck through a suction machine usually after every 2 hours. What should we do now?

He seems to be in advance stage cancers, please provide best supportive care. Smelly discharge can be due to infection, you can get a culture sensitivity of sputum done and give antibiotics under supervision of a physician. Nebulization also may help him by clearing respiratory passage. There are organization providing hospice or terminal care at home, you can contact them for home based remedy.
