Bowel cancer is not terrible, I am most afraid of hospitalization
As the saying goes: "Talking about cancer discoloration", "cancer" is often associated with terms such as "incurable disease" and "terminally ill", which shows the terrible cancer. In fact, cancer is often called malignant tumor, and it often threatens people. s life. However, with the development of medical technology, cancer is no longer an incurable disease. Some cancers can be completely cured, and "intestinal cancer" is one of them. "Bowel cancer" is mostly colorectal cancer, which can be divided into colon cancer and rectal cancer. Rectal cancer is more common in China, and its incidence has ranked second in the world for malignant tumors. China is about fourth to fifth. There is a clear upward trend. The incidence in China's big cities is about 20-30/100,000, which has become a relatively common disease. The causes of colorectal cancer are mainly related to the following factors: (1) Dietary factors, such as high-fat, low-fiber diet; (2) Environmental factors, such as environmental pollution, mental stress, and aging population; (3) Lifestyle , Such as lack of physical activity, overweight and obesity; (4) genetic factors; (5) other such as colorectal polyps (disease), inflammatory bowel disease, etc. Therefore, prevention is the key to the prevention and treatment of colorectal cancer, and the above-mentioned related pathogenic factors provide the basis for prevention and treatment. Furthermore, the onset of colorectal cancer is longer, and early detection and treatment of precancerous lesions is of great significance. Moreover, colorectal cancer can be cured at an early stage. Therefore, colorectal cancer is not terrible, it can be prevented. Specific measures include: (1) Change eating habits and reasonably arrange dietary structure; (2) Develop good living habits, actively participate in physical activities and exercises, and control weight; (3) Actively treat colorectal polyps and inflammatory bowel disease; ( 4) Regular screening, because screening is the most effective method for early detection and early diagnosis. What should we do if we find colorectal cancer? The correct treatment should be carried out as soon as possible. At present, the methods of treating colorectal cancer mainly include: (1) surgery; (2) chemotherapy; (3) radiotherapy; (4) traditional Chinese medicine; (5) immunity; (6) biological therapy, etc., of which surgery is still the most important The treatment method is the only method that can cure colorectal cancer. Clinical statistics show that the cure rate of early colorectal cancer surgery can reach more than 90%. Even for advanced colorectal cancer that has liver metastasis, surgery is the only possible cure.
As we all know, the effect of bowel cancer is that the earlier the disease stage, the better the effect. Generally speaking, the 5-year survival rate for stage I bowel cancer is more than 90%, about 70% for stage II, 30% to 50% for stage III, and only 4.9% for stage IV. However, clinical statistics show that at present, more than 60% of colorectal cancer patients in China are already in the middle and advanced stages when they are discovered, and only 15% are in the early stage (stage I), and the overall 5-year survival rate is hovering around 50%. This is one of the reasons for this situation. The important reason is "to go to the doctor indiscriminately when sick." The following is a classic example:
It has been reported that about 90% of rectal cancer is misdiagnosed as "hemorrhoids" in the early stage of onset, which is related to the symptoms of blood in the stool in both diseases. As the saying goes, "ten people have nine hemorrhoids", "hemorrhoids" is a common disease with a very "mass basis". Many people think that they are suffering from "hemorrhoids" when they have blood in the stool. To justify it, many people think it doesn’t matter. Even if you have a lot of blood in the stool and go to a small hospital or general internal medicine consultation, some doctors will be preconceived and treat hemorrhoids more often. Therefore, when the colorectal cancer is diagnosed, it is often at an advanced stage or even distant metastasis. If you have a disease, you need to go to a doctor. I am afraid that even a child knows it. In fact, many people do not go to a doctor when they are sick. Many people find a doctor casually. Many people go to a doctor everywhere. The result is delay. Condition. It’s okay if it’s just a hemorrhoid. If it’s bowel cancer, I’m afraid it’s too much to regret and regret for a lifetime. According to relevant survey reports, about 1/3 of malignant tumors can be prevented, 1/3 can be cured, and 1/3 can alleviate pain and prolong life. The key is to choose scientific and effective treatment measures. As long as we achieve "early detection, early diagnosis, and early correct treatment", colorectal cancer can be completely cured. In order to prevent patients and their families from "emergency and random medical treatment", blindly believe in some informal therapies and health foods for bowel cancer, thus entering the misunderstanding of bowel cancer treatment. In this regard, we have the following suggestions: 1. Strengthen common sense of cancer prevention, regular physical examinations (especially high-risk groups, such as middle-aged and elderly people, people with family genetic history), early detection of bowel cancer; 2. Unknown symptoms, Don’t blindly seek medical treatment, don’t just ask for treatment, don’t be afraid of examinations, and find out the cause as much as possible; 3. Have a correct understanding of the disease, and don’t have unrealistic illusions and go to a specialist in a regular hospital; 4. Trust the doctor, the doctor has A certain amount of medical knowledge will help the patient choose the correct method.
