Bowel cancer is a malignant degeneration of the glandular epithelium mainly of the colon or rectum. The first stages are characterised by lingering symptomatology, distracting from the primary pathology and resembling a disorder of the gastrointestinal tract. The leading radical method of treatment is surgical excision of the affected tissue.
Diagnosis of cancer only according to clinical symptoms is unpromising because of the numerous manifestations of the disease. Symptoms of bowel cancer can vary. The following description of the symptoms is given to show the variety of signs of pathology, and to confirm the importance of competent medical diagnosis by modern methods.
Colorectal cancer has no characteristic (pathognomonic) symptoms. There are several groups of bowel cancer symptoms that characterise various pathological processes within the patient’s body.
A violation of the integrity of the mucous membranes of the intestinal wall accompanies the initial stages of colon cancer.
As a result, the gate opens for infection, the contents of the intestine get into the blood, causing intoxication. Here are the symptoms of bowel cancer:
increased fatigue, weakness, headache, nausea, other signs of intoxication;
high fever, joint pain (the consequence of toxicosis);
loss of blood from the small vessels of the intestinal wall, anaemia, pallor of the mucous membranes, a decrease in the level of haemoglobin, a thickening of the blood, a change in its other parameters and, as a consequence, a change in the rhythm of the heart and respiration.
You can mess the disease with a variety of intoxications, caused, for example, by inflammatory diseases of the heart, joints or upper respiratory tract.
Pseudosinflammatory (reminiscent of widespread inflammation) symptoms of bowel cancer develop in later stages of oncology with metastases to the lungs, ovaries, and other organs, very often the signs are combined with a palpable tumour.
The following signs of the disease are as follows:
severe, persistent abdominal pain, sometimes of unclear localisation;
purulent and bloody discharge from the anus at defecation;
constipation, the impossibility of excretion without enema, difficulty with the evacuation of intestinal gases;
symptoms associated with metastatic organs affected, for example, coughing with lung involvement, indigestion with liver involvement, excretion from the genital organs when they are involved in carcinogenesis.
Colonic Irrigation with bicarbonate of soda and the probiotic implant can prevent the development of oncology, as well as maintain the health of the large intestine.
