People may stop working and get tired while doing work and daily activities. If this fatigue is not resolved by resting and the person still feels tired and bruised after sleeping, it is called excessive fatigue. In addition, extreme fatigue and weakness can be a sign of diabetes.Abdominal muscle cramps Most people face abdominal pain during their life, and these symptoms, like many symptoms, can be minor and transient. This symptom is also present in diseases such as hemorrhoids and irritable syndrome, which are not considered cancer. However, abdominal pains that started recently and gradually became more prolonged and intense can be a sign of cancer. Bleeding Bleeding usually originates from the end of the colon. It is one of the common symptoms of colon cancer. Seeing bright red blood on the tissue after defecation or pink or red water in the toilet bowl can be signs of bleeding. People often attribute bleeding to hemorrhoids, which makes them not seek the initial cancer diagnosis.

Fortunately, the incidence of colon cancer has decreased in the last 10 years. Treatment depends on the type and stage of colon cancer. The doctor considers age, general health, and some other characteristics when deciding on the best treatment option. There is no single treatment for colon cancer, and options may include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. The goal of treatment is to remove cancer, prevent its spread, and reduce symptoms. Surgery The main treatment for colon cancer in the early stages is usually surgery. If the tumor is only in one polyp, people may only need a polypectomy to eliminate the cancerous polyp. Surgery to remove part or all of the colon is a colectomy. During this procedure, the surgeon removes the part of the colon that contains cancer, as well as part of the surrounding area.Chemotherapy During chemotherapy, a cancer care team prescribes drugs that interfere with the process of cell division. They do it by disrupting proteins or DNA to damage and destroy cancer cells. These treatments prevent any rapidly dividing cells, including healthy cells.Radiotherapy Radiation therapy destroys cancer cells by focusing high-energy gamma rays on them. A cancer care team may use external beam radiation therapy, which delivers the radiation from a machine outside the body. With internal radiation, the doctor implants radioactive material in the form of seeds near the cancer site. The radiation may also be from high-energy X-rays. A doctor may order radiation therapy as a stand-alone treatment to shrink a tumor or destroy cancer cells. Side effects of radiation therapy may include the following Mild skin changes that look like sunburn or tanning. Nausea Vomit DiarrheaFatigue Loss of appetite Weight Loss Most side effects resolve or disappear within a few weeks of treatment.Sometimes, many signs and symptoms associated with colon cancer may be ignored by people. At the same time, it may be a warning sign of a dangerous condition in them. Detecting cancer in its early stages can save many lives, so it is very important to be ready to recognize the symptoms of colon cancer.#parshealthtv #parshealthclinic #pars_health_tv #pars_health_clinic #colon #colon_cancer #colon_cancers_signs_and_symptoms #colon_cancer_treatment #colon_cancer_signs
