Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Colon cancer, commonly grouped together with colorectal cancer, is cancer of the large intestine – the final portion of the digestive tract. It is the most common of all gastrointestinal cancers. Colon cancer usually starts from a small growth called a polyp. Polyps are very common, but most polyps do NOT become cancers. Polyps can be of various types, some of which are more likely to develop into malignant tumors than others. Early-stage colon cancer generally produces NO symptoms. Advanced-stage symptoms VARY depending on the location of the tumor, and may include: changes in bowel habits that PERSIST for weeks; blood in stool; abdominal pain and discomfort; constant feeling that the bowel doesn't empty completely; fatigue; and unexplained weight loss. EARLY detection is the key to prevent colon cancer. Because a PRE-cancerous polyp usually takes YEARS to develop into a malignant tumor, colon cancer can be EFFECTIVELY prevented with regular screening. There are 2 major types of screening tests: - Stool-based tests: stool samples are examined for signs of cancer, such as blood and mutated DNA. These tests are NON-invasive but LESS effective and need to be done more often. - VISUAL screening, such as colonoscopy, is more reliable and can be done every 5 or 10 years. Colonoscopy uses a long, flexible tube equipped with a camera and light, to VIEW the entire colon. If polyps or abnormal structures are found, surgical tools are passed through the tube to remove polyps or take tissue samples for analysis. Typically, any polyps found in the colon are removed during colonoscopy and examined for pre-cancerous changes, known as dysplasia. If high-grade dysplasia is detected, a follow-up colonoscopy is required to monitor the condition. Colorectal cancers are caused by MUTATIONS that INcrease the rate of cellular division. Some of these mutations can be INHERITED from parents. Examples of inherited colorectal cancers include: - Familial adenomatous polyposis, or FAP: a condition caused by mutations in the APC gene. The APC protein acts as a tumor SUPPRESSOR, keeping cells from growing and dividing too fast. Mutations in APC result in UNcontrolled cell division, causing HUNDREDS of polyps to grow in the colon. FAP patients usually develop colon cancer by the age of 40. - Lynch syndrome: another inherited condition caused by changes in genes that normally help REPAIR DNA damages. A FAULTY DNA repair results in INcreased rate of mutations. Patients are at high risks of colorectal cancer as well as other types of cancers. In most cases, however, the mutations that lead to cancer are ACQUIRED during a person’s life rather than being inherited. The early event is usually a mutation in the same APC gene that is responsible for FAP. While FAP is a RARE condition, APC mutations are VERY COMMON in SPORADIC colorectal cancers. Apart from genetic predisposition, other risks factors for colon cancer include: aging, high-red meat and low-fiber diets, obesity, alcohol use, smoking, diabetes, and inflammatory intestinal conditions, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.

Riscul de cancer de colon (cancer colorectal sau cancerul intestinului gros) creşte la persoanele cu vârsta de peste 50 de ani. Iată simptomele: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ok0sCM-yl6Y Diagnosticat la timp, acest tip de cancer poate fi tratat! Tot ce trebuie să faceți este un test, o dată pe an. Dacă sunt probleme, doctorul vă va recomanda o colonoscopie: https://youtu.be/QulCZof68r4 Federația Asociațiilor Bolnavilor de Cancer oferă gratuit 500 de teste hemocult pe http://www.invingemcancerul.ro Testul Veroval hemocult (pentru prevenția problemelor intestinale) se găsește la farmacii sau online http://www.scutece-acasa.ro/product/Test-Veroval-preventia-afectiunilor-intestinale-56 Cancerul de colon (cancer colorectal sau cancerul intestinului gros) este o tumoră solidă care se formează prin înmulţirea necontrolată a unor celule, fapt ce duce la apariția unor polipi fie în colon, fie în rect. Intestinul gros (1,5 m) este format din cecum, colon (1,3 m) și rect. De aceea, cancerul intestinului gros se mai numește și cancer colorectal. Depistat la timp, acest tip de cancer poate fi tratat. Una dintre cele mai simple metode de depistare este testul hemocult, care are ca scop identificarea sângerărilor ascunse în scaun. Federația Asociațiilor Bolnavilor de Cancer (FABC) oferă gratuit 500 astfel de teste tuturor celor interesați. Tot ce trebuie să faceți este să dați click aici să solicitați testul care va fi trimis, gratuit, la adresa pe care o menționați. ”Am decis să oferim 500 de teste hemocult și să încurajăm oamenii să își facă anual această analiză. Este prima acțiune de acest gen derulată în România, în lipsa unui program național de screening pentru această formă de cancer. Studiile au arătat că testul hemocult, făcut anual, reduce cu 16% riscul apariției cancerului intestinului gros.” spune Cezar Irimia, președintele FABC. 25 dintre cele 28 de țări membre ale Uniunii Europene au implementat programe de screening pentru cancerul colorectal, așa cum se arată într-un document publicat în anul 2017. (Cancer Screening in the European Union, 2017, report on the implementation of the Council Recommendation on cancer screening) Simptomele cancerului intestinului gros (cancer colorectal) sunt: • Sângerările în scaun. Totuşi, sângele prezent în scaun poate fi semn și de alte afecțiuni (hemoroizi, fisuri anale, colită ulcerativă, ulcer duodenal), de aceea este important să discutați cu medicul dumneavoastră; • Modificarea tranzitului intestinal (constipație sau diaree); • Modificarea aspectului și consistenței scaunului; • Senzația că intestinul nu a fost golit complet după eliminarea scaunului; • Senzația de balonare; • Scăderea inexplicabilă în greutate; • Starea de oboseală și slăbiciune neexplicată; • Durerile la nivel rectal sau anal; • O masă palpabilă la nivel abdominal; • Durere, crampe sau umflarea abdomenului; • Anemie prin deficit de fier (număr redus de celule roșii din sânge). Cauzele exacte ale cancerului intestinului gros nu sunt cunoscute, dar principalii factori de risc sunt: • Antecedente în familie: riscul crește dacă o rudă de gradul I a fost diagnosticată cu această boală până la vârsta de 45 de ani. • Vârsta: mai mult de 90% dintre cazuri apar la pacienţi cu vârsta de peste 50 ani. • Sexul: cancerul de colon apare mai ales la femei, iar cancerul rectal mai frecvent la bărbaţi. • Fumatul creşte de 2.5 ori riscul de apariție a adenoamelor. • Alcoolul consumat în cantități crescute, în fiecare zi (în special berea), dublează riscul de apariție a acestei boli. • Dieta: dietele vegetale cu conţinut bogat în fibre şi sărac în grăsimi pot reduce riscul de cancer al intestinului gros. Consumul crescut de grăsimi si glucide rafinate se asociază însă cu un risc crescut. • Bolile inflamatorii intestinale: Colita ulcerativă și boala Crohn cresc riscul de cancer de 4 până la 20 de ori. Statistici despre cancerul intestinului gros: • în România apar anual 10.300 cazuri noi • în Europa apar anual 450.000 cazuri noi • în lume apar anual aproximativ 1.360.000 cazuri noi • în lume este al treilea cel mai comun tip de cancer la bărbați și al doilea la femei • în România, boala ucide anual 5.700 oameni • în Europa, boala ucide anual 230.000 oameni • în lume, boala ucide anual 700.000 oameni • în Europa este a doua cauză de deces dintre toate tipurile de cancer. Tratamentul ”Cancerul colonului este de multe ori asimptomatic până în stadii avansate. Cu cât este diagnosticat mai precoce, cu atât șansele de vindecare cresc. De aceea, este foarte important ca oamenii să vină la medic, să nu se teamă. Cu cât mai repede, cu atât mai bine!” spune medicul oncolog dr. Adina Croitoru. Intervenția chirurgicală este cea mai frecventă metodă de tratament, dar în funcție de stadiul bolii, poate fi nevoie de chimioterapie sau radioterapie. Nu uitați, un test hemocult pe care îl puteți face acasă, vă poate salva viața! (Surse: Globocan și europacolon.com)

What Is A Colon Polyp? Do Colon Polyps Lead To Colon Cancer? Related videos: Colonoscopy Preparation - Pre-Colonoscopy Diet And Bowel Prep https://youtu.be/DsJEimNO180 Why Colon Cancer Screening Is Important https://youtu.be/FRwli0PXXaw Colon polyps are fleshy growths on the inside the colon lining (see the drawing on the left). Most colon polyps are harmless, but some can develop into colon cancer, which may be fatal when found in its later stages. Colon polyps form when cells divide abnormally, and they can develop anywhere in your large intestine. Very often, there are no symptoms, and most people never even realize they have one (or more). Typically, they're only discovered during a bowel examination (like a colonoscopy). However, some people with colon polyps experience the following. * Rectal bleeding, as sometimes happens with hemorrhoids or minor tears in the anal area. * Change in stool color. Streaks of blood in stools, or very dark stools. But a sudden change in color might also be caused by foods, medications and supplements. * Noticeable changes in bowel habits. Constipation or diarrhea that lasts goes on for 7 days or more may be a symptom of a large colon polyp. * Painful and abdominal discomfort can occur if a large polym partially obstructs the bowel. * Fatigue and shortness of breath may occur due to a condition known as iron deficiency anemia. When polyps cause gradual, unnoticeable bleeding, your body loses some of the iron it needs. Those who are most at risk to develop polyps include these groups. * Anyone over the age of 50. * Anyone with type 2 diabetes that isn't well-controlled. * Individuals who smoke tobacco often or drink a lot of alcohol. * Those who are obesity and exercise infrequently or not at all. * Persons with inflammatory intestinal conditions, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. * Anyone who has a family history. If you have a lot of relatives who have had colon polyps or colon cancer, you have a higher chance of getting them. Recent research seems to indicate that, for unknown reasons, African Americans develop polyps and colon cancer more often than other races. Regular screening tests are important, because colon polyps found in the early stages can usually be removed safely and completely.

Since Robert’s dad got colorectal cancer at age 45, when Robert went for his annual checkup, he asked his own doctor about getting screened. He got a screening test called a colonoscopy, a test that can show the whole colon and the best kind of test for Robert because of his family cancer history. The colonoscopy showed he had cancer. “People tell me that they are scared to get screened, but I think it’s scarier if you have a tumor that the doctor can’t remove,” Robert said. “If I hadn’t been screened, I wouldn’t have been able to see my son go off to college, or enjoy this next chapter of my life with my wife and family.” What You Can Do: • If you’re 50 to 75 years old, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. If you’re younger than 50 and think you may be at high risk of getting colorectal cancer, or if you’re older than 75, ask your doctor if you should be screened. • Be physically active. • Keep a healthy weight. • Don’t drink too much alcohol. • Don’t smoke. Fast Facts: • Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. • Risk increases with age. More than 90% of colorectal cancers occur in people aged 50 and older. • Precancerous polyps and colorectal cancer don’t always cause symptoms, especially at first. You could have polyps or colorectal cancer and not know it. That is why having a screening test is so important. If you have symptoms, they may include: - Blood in or on the stool (bowel movement). - Stomach pain, aches, or cramps that do not go away. - Losing weight and you don’t know why. These symptoms may be caused by something other than cancer. If you have any of them, see your doctor. • There are several screening test options. Talk with your doctor about which is right for you.

Phases of Colon Cancer. On the off chance that you have been determined to have colon growth, one of the primary things your specialist will need to decide is the phase of your tumor. The stage alludes to the degree of the disease or how far it has spread. Organizing colon disease is basic to decide the best treatment approach. Colon growth is normally organized in light of a framework built up by the American Joint Committee on Cancer called the TNM arranging framework. The framework thinks about the accompanying elements: *Primary tumor (T): Primary tumor alludes to how substantial the first tumor is and whether malignancy has developed into the mass of the colon or spread to adjacent regions. *Regional lymph hubs (N): Regional lymph hubs alludes to whether malignancy cells have spread to close-by lymph hubs. *Distant metastases (M): Distant metastases alludes to whether malignancy has spread from the colon to different parts of the body, for example, the lungs or liver. Malignancy organize characterizations: Inside every classification, the illness is characterized much further and alloted a number or a letter to show the degree of the infection. These assignments depend on the structure of the colon, and also how far the tumor has become through the layers of the colon divider. The phases of colon disease are as per the following: Stage 0: This is the most punctual type of colon disease and means it has not developed past the mucosa, or the deepest layer of the colon. Stage 1: Stage 1 colon disease demonstrates the growth has developed into the inward layer of the colon, called the mucosa, to the following layer of the colon, called the submucosa. It has not spread to the lymph hubs. Stage 2: In arrange 2 colon malignancy, the illness is somewhat more progressed than organize 1 and has developed past the mucosa and the submucosa of the colon. Stage 2 colon growth is arranged further as stage 2A, 2B, or 2C. *2A: In arrange 2A, malignancy has not spread to the lymph hubs or close-by tissue. It has achieved the external layers of the colon. Be that as it may, it has not totally become through. *2B: In organize 2B, disease has not spread to the lymph hubs, but rather has developed however the external layer of the colon and to the instinctive peritoneum. This is the layer that holds the stomach organs set up. *2C: In arrange 2C, growth isn't found in close-by lymph hubs, however notwithstanding becoming through the external layer of the colon, it has developed to close-by organs or structures. Stage 3: Stage 3 colon tumor is delegated arrange 3A, 3B, and 3C as takes after: *3A: In Stage 3A, the tumor has developed to or through the strong layers of the colon and is found in close-by lymph hubs. It has not spread to far off hubs or organs. *3B: In Stage 3B, the tumor has become through the outmost layers of the colon and enters the instinctive peritoneum or attacks different organs or structures and is found in one to three lymph nodes.Or the tumor isn't through the external layers of the colon divider yet is found in at least 4 close-by lymph hubs. *3C: In organize 3C, the tumor has developed past the solid layers and disease is found in at least 4 adjacent lymph hubs, however not far off locales. Stage 4A: Stage 4A malignancy demonstrates that tumor has spread to one inaccessible site, for example, the liver or lungs. Stage 4B: Stage 4B is the most developed phase of colon disease and shows growth has spread to at least two far off destinations, for example, the lungs and liver. Poor quality versus high-review: Notwithstanding arranging, colon growth is likewise named either poor quality or high-review. At the point when a pathologist analyzes disease cells under a magnifying instrument, they allocate a number from 1 to 4 in light of how much the cells look like solid cells. The higher the review, the more unusual the cells look. Despite the fact that it can change, second rate growths have a tendency to develop slower than high-review disease. The anticipation is additionally viewed as better for individuals who have poor quality colon tumor.
