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.

Colon Cancer Affects 1 In 5 People Here Is How You Can Stay Safe
 
04:10
According to the Colon Cancer Alliance and the American Cancer Society, colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the US. Colon Cancer is considered a PREVENTABLE cancer. Why? Primarily because by changing our diet we can reduce risk dramatically.  Here are 7 proven steps you can take right now to promote a healthy anti-cancer intestinal environment and prevent colorectal cancer naturally: 1.Eat Less Red Meat.  Studies show that eating red meat “frequently” increases the incidence of colon cancer. Eating red meat daily, and especially more than one serving per day. Increased risk is associated with increased inflammation associated with chemicals released by digestion of red meat. These chemicals increase damage to and inhibit the repair of DNA in the cells lining your intestines. Damage to DNA is a primary cause of all cancers. 2.Eat a Rainbow of Plant Antioxidants.  The deep, bright colors of fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices contribute a wide variety of antioxidants to the diet. Examples of few antioxidants rich, deeply pigmented foods are: blueberries, cranberries, carrots, apricots, kale, broccoli, spinach, avocado, apples, red cabbage, turmeric, etc. Color signals the presence of antioxidant that turn on cancer suppressor genes and turn off cancer promoter genes. Studies show increased levels of inflammation and oxidative stress in the colon with diets lacking plant antioxidants. Increased inflammation and low antioxidant levels is an environment that promotes colon cancer. 3.Use Olive Oil in your cooking.  Olive-oil contains plant chemicals that have anti-cancer properties. Olive oil reduces bile acid and increases enzymes that regulate cell turn over in the lining of the intestines promoting healthy tissue. Antioxidant compounds (phenolics) present in olive-oil also exert a cancer protective antioxidant effect. 4.Include Omega 3 Oils.   A diet rich in anti-inflammatory Omega 3 oils (EPA and DHA) decreases incidence of colon cancer. Omega 3 oils are found in cold water fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel and cod as well as flax-oil. Omega 3 oils decrease the levels of pro-inflammatory molecules that promote cancer. Because it is not always easy to get adequate levels of Omega 3 oils (EPA and DHA) in the modern diet, oral supplementation is a good alternative.  5.Eat More Garlic. Garlic is high in the minerals sulfur and selenium as well as plant chemicals such as allicin and flavonoids, all known to be beneficial to health. Preliminary studies suggest that garlic consumption may reduce the risk of developing several types of cancer, especially cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. 6.Be Physically Active. It’s hard to beat regular activity. It lowers the risk of many serious diseases, including colon-cancer, and provides a good mental boost. Any amount of physical activity is better than none, but it’s good to aim for around 30-minutes or more of moderate activity each day. Choose things you enjoy, like brisk walking, cycling, dancing or gardening. 7.Get Screened. Getting regular screening tests for colon-cancer is the single best way to protect yourself from the disease. It can catch cancer early, when it’s most treatable, and help prevent the disease by finding abnormal growths called polyps that can turn into cancer. screening options are: Fecal Occult Blood Test, Colonoscopy, Flexible Sigmoidoscopy and Virtual Colonoscopy.

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.

8 Ways to Prevent Colon Cancer
 
07:42
8 Ways to Prevent Colon Cancer Colon cancer doesn’t get the same attention as some higher-profile cancers, but it should. It’s the third most common cancer in the United States, with 140,000 people diagnosed each year. And over a million men and women live with a history of the disease. Then there’s the good news about colon cancer: It can be prevented. Seventy-five percent of all cases could be avoided by things you can do. Use these eight tips as a guide to lowering your risk. Start with one or two and build from there. It’s your health. Take control. 1. Get Screened Getting regular screening tests for colon cancer is the single best way to protect yourself from the disease. It can catch cancer early, when it’s most treatable, and help prevent the disease by finding abnormal growths called polyps that can turn into cancer. There are a number of effective screening tests for colon cancer. Some are easy to do but need to be done more often. Others are more involved but need to be done less often. Which test you have depends on your personal preferences and medical history. A doctor can help you decide. Most people begin getting tested at age 50. People with a family history of colon cancer or other important risk factors may begin testing at younger ages and get tested more often. Choose one of these recommended screening options. If a test finds anything suspicious, a follow-up colonoscopy is usually needed. Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT)/Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) How often: every year Tests that look for hidden blood in the stool, which can be a sign of cancer. The test is quick and easy. You just take small samples of your stool at home, which are then sent to a lab to be tested. OR Colonoscopy How often: every 10 years A small flexible tube with a camera at the end is used to examine the full length of the inside of the colon. You are sedated for the test, so you need a ride home afterward. If the exam finds polyps or other suspicious growths, they can be removed during the test. OR Flexible Sigmoidoscopy How often: every five years An exam similar to a colonoscopy that uses a small flexible tube to examine the lower part of the colon (the sigmoid). You don’t need to be sedated for a sigmoidoscopy. OR Virtual Colonoscopy How often: every five years A type of CT scan that creates a precise 3-D image of the inside of the colon. During the test, a small tube is inserted into the rectum to gently inflate the colon with air. The scan itself takes just a few minutes. 2. Maintain a Healthy Weight Except for smoking, nothing else raises the overall risk of cancer more than being overweight. At least 11 different cancers have been linked to weight gain and obesity, including colon cancer. An ideal goal is to weigh around what you did when you were 18 years old. Realistically, if you’ve put on weight, the first goal is to stop gaining weight, which has health benefits by itself. Then, for a bigger health boost, slowly work to lose some pounds. 3. Don’t Smoke It hardly needs saying anymore, but not smoking is the single best thing you can do for your health. On top of raising the risk of serious diseases like heart disease, stroke and emphysema, smoking is a major cause of at least 14 different cancers, including colon cancer. If you do smoke, quitting has real benefits, which start shortly after your last cigarette. Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW or visit smokefree.gov for help. Talking to a doctor can double your chance of success. 4. Be Physically Active It’s hard to beat regular activity. It lowers the risk of many serious diseases, including colon cancer, and provides a good mental boost. Any amount of physical activity is better than none, but it’s good to aim for around 30 minutes or more of moderate activity each day. Choose things you enjoy, like brisk walking, cycling, dancing or gardening. 5. Drink Only Moderately, if at All 6. Limit Red Meat, Especially Processed Meat 7. Get Enough Calcium and Vitamin D 8. Consider a Multivitamin With Folate Help us to be better SUBSCRIBE for more videos here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXdJqh4rOHguFcgwLlatjLw?sub_confirmation=1 More from Health Area: -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WG2mJutazsE -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH6rdRQ9Ibc -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UtSQrsbnpQ 8 Ways to Prevent Colon Cancer By HEALTH AREA

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.

8 Ways to Prevent Colon Cancer
 
07:15
8 Ways to Prevent Colon Cancer Colon cancer doesn’t get the same attention as some higher-profile cancers, but it should. It’s the third most common cancer in the United States, with 140,000 people diagnosed each year. And over a million men and women live with a history of the disease. Then there’s the good news about colon cancer: It can be prevented. Seventy-five percent of all cases could be avoided by things you can do. Use these eight tips as a guide to lowering your risk. Start with one or two and build from there. It’s your health. Take control. 1. Get Screened Getting regular screening tests for colon cancer is the single best way to protect yourself from the disease. It can catch cancer early, when it’s most treatable, and help prevent the disease by finding abnormal growths called polyps that can turn into cancer. There are a number of effective screening tests for colon cancer. Some are easy to do but need to be done more often. Others are more involved but need to be done less often. Which test you have depends on your personal preferences and medical history. A doctor can help you decide. Most people begin getting tested at age 50. People with a family history of colon cancer or other important risk factors may begin testing at younger ages and get tested more often. Choose one of these recommended screening options. If a test finds anything suspicious, a follow-up colonoscopy is usually needed. Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT)/Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) How often: every year Tests that look for hidden blood in the stool, which can be a sign of cancer. The test is quick and easy. You just take small samples of your stool at home, which are then sent to a lab to be tested. OR Colonoscopy How often: every 10 years A small flexible tube with a camera at the end is used to examine the full length of the inside of the colon. You are sedated for the test, so you need a ride home afterward. If the exam finds polyps or other suspicious growths, they can be removed during the test. OR Flexible Sigmoidoscopy How often: every five years An exam similar to a colonoscopy that uses a small flexible tube to examine the lower part of the colon (the sigmoid). You don’t need to be sedated for a sigmoidoscopy. OR Virtual Colonoscopy How often: every five years A type of CT scan that creates a precise 3-D image of the inside of the colon. During the test, a small tube is inserted into the rectum to gently inflate the colon with air. The scan itself takes just a few minutes. 2. Maintain a Healthy Weight Except for smoking, nothing else raises the overall risk of cancer more than being overweight. At least 11 different cancers have been linked to weight gain and obesity, including colon cancer. An ideal goal is to weigh around what you did when you were 18 years old. Realistically, if you’ve put on weight, the first goal is to stop gaining weight, which has health benefits by itself. Then, for a bigger health boost, slowly work to lose some pounds. 3. Don’t Smoke It hardly needs saying anymore, but not smoking is the single best thing you can do for your health. On top of raising the risk of serious diseases like heart disease, stroke and emphysema, smoking is a major cause of at least 14 different cancers, including colon cancer. If you do smoke, quitting has real benefits, which start shortly after your last cigarette. Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW or visit smokefree.gov for help. Talking to a doctor can double your chance of success. 4. Be Physically Active It’s hard to beat regular activity. It lowers the risk of many serious diseases, including colon cancer, and provides a good mental boost. Any amount of physical activity is better than none, but it’s good to aim for around 30 minutes or more of moderate activity each day. Choose things you enjoy, like brisk walking, cycling, dancing or gardening. 5. Drink Only Moderately, if at All 6. Limit Red Meat, Especially Processed Meat 7. Get Enough Calcium and Vitamin D 8.

Get colon checked sooner, new guidelines say

Get colon checked sooner, new guidelines say May 30, 2018 4:0 Colorectal cancer: What you need to know (CNN)If you're in your mid-40s and haven't had your colon checked, it might be time. The American Cancer Society's newly updated guidelines for colon and rectal cancer screening recommend that adults at average risk get screened starting at age 45 instead of 50, as previously advised. The updated guidelines come on the heels of what seems to be a rise in colorectal cancer among younger adults. Those at higher risk include African Americans, Alaska Natives, and people with a family history or a personal history of colon or rectal polyps; risk factors such as these could require screening earlier. Published in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians on Wednesday, the updated guidelines also indicate that there are six screening test options for adults, ranging from noninvasive stool tests to visual exams like colonoscopy, depending on the preference of the patient and availability of the test. Other health organizations in the United States -- such as the US Preventive Services Task Force -- still recommend routine screening for colon and rectal cancers starting at age 50. Colorectal cancer, which includes both colon and rectal cancers, is the third most common cause of cancer-related deaths in the world, according to the World Health Organization. In the United States, colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths among cancers that affect both men and women, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Some studies suggest that the rates of colorectal cancer deaths are climbing among American adults younger than 55. After declining overall from 1970 to 2004, colon and rectal cancer mortality rates among 20- to 54-year-olds in the United States increased by 1% annually from 2004 to 2014, according to a study published last year in the medical journal JAMA. "Behind these numbers are real people and real faces, and all of us in the colorectal cancer world and all the gastroenterologists and all the oncologists have been seeing more and more young people who develop this disease," said Dr. Richard Wender, chief cancer control officer at the American Cancer Society, who oversaw the development of the new guidelines. "In people born more recently, they're at four times the risk for rectal cancer than people born in the '50s (at the same age), for example, and double the risk of colon cancer," he said. "It's what we call a birth cohort effect. Nobody knows why really clearly, and that's a big area of interest, but nobody's questioning that it's happening." Six screening test options To make the updated guidelines, researchers conducted a systematic review of published studies on colorectal cancer screening strategies. The researchers also commissioned a microsimulation modeling study involving a model called MISCAN, which simulates colorectal cancer incidence and mortality and estimates risk factors and the impact of screening and treatment practices. The researchers' new modeling study was an extension of analyses conducted for the US Preventive Services Task Force recommendations, and it assessed the potential risk and benefit of various colorectal screening strategies among black and white men and women in the United States. Based on their review and that simulation modeling, the researchers identified efficient strategies for screening starting at age 45. Those strategies were undergoing colonoscopy every 10 years; a computed tomography colonography or "virtual colonoscopy" every five years; a flexible sigmoidoscopy every five years; a multitarget stool DNA test every three years; a take-home fecal immunochemical testannually; or a take-home high-sensitivity guaiac fecal occult blood test annually. The updated guidelines also noted that there is wide variation in the costs of those screening options, depending on patient insurance plans, ranging from around $30 for a take-home fecal immunochemical test to thousands of dollars for a colonoscopy. Outside of the cost and the frequency in which a test is recommended to be done, "all these tests are approximately equal in their value and can be offered," Wender said. "We know from trials that if you offer a choice between colonoscopy and a less-invasive test, that more people will opt to be screened, which is our goal in the end," he said. "The evidence is now absolutely clear, and I can't emphasize how carefully this was done. It took us two years of work to provide a compelling argument and evidence that the screening age for everyone should begin at age 45, not age 50." What explains the rise in colorectal cancer? Time will tell whether other leading health organizations follow in the American Cancer Society's footsteps with recommending screening for adults younger than 50. Additionally, more research could shed light on why there has been a rise in colorectal cancer among these younger adults, said

Stages of Colon Cancer
 
07:25
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. Tests to decide colon disease organize: Specialists utilize a strategy called a colonoscopy to recognize colon malignancy. A colonoscopy is a screening test where the specialist utilizes a long, limit tube with a little camera connected to see within your colon.

Colon cancer is cancer of the large intestine (colon), which is the final part of your digestive tract. Most cases of colon cancer begin as small, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells called adenomatous polyps. Over time some of these polyps can become colon cancers.Polyps may be small and produce few, if any, symptoms.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmL90BjSP7k&t=15s For this reason, doctors recommend regular screening tests to help prevent colon cancer by identifying and removing polyps before they turn into cancer.Signs and symptoms of colon cancer include: • A change in your bowel habits, including diarrhea or constipation or a change in the consistency of your stool, that lasts longer than four weeks • Rectal bleeding or blood in your stool • Persistent abdominal discomfort, such as cramps, gas or pain • A feeling that your bowel doesn't empty completely • Weakness or fatigue • Unexplained weight loss Colon cancer occurs in the large intestine, which can affect bowel habits. 90% of people with bowel cancer have one of the following combinations of symptoms: a persistent change in bowel habit – going more often, with looser stools and sometimes tummy (abdominal) pain. blood in the stools without other piles symptoms – this makes it unlikely the cause is hemorrhoids.
