The early signs of colorectal cancer are as follows:
First of all, without deliberate exercise or weight loss diet, the patient suddenly found that his weight loss was very obvious in a short period of time, showing that he lost 5-10 catties in 1 to 3 months, or about 20 catties in half a year.
Second, unexplained anemia often occurs, which is manifested in the appearance of pale and yellow face, eyelids (pink for normal people, bloodshot when tired) turn pale red or white, dizziness and fatigue all day long, and lack of energy to do things.
Third, there are symptoms of abdominal pain, bloating, loss of appetite, and not wanting to eat.
Fourth, there is blood in the stool, or black stool. Blood in the stool is not necessarily colorectal cancer, it may be hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids bleeding is usually manifested as the color of blood is bright red, and even drips like rain when bleeding. If the hemorrhoids are relatively large, blood will even spray out. These are all hemorrhoids. Not a serious illness.
The bleeding of rectal cancer is often less bleeding, and it is not bright red blood, but pink, yellow, or black blood. Bleeding from rectal cancer is often stuck with stool, not coming out of the anus independently.
Fifth, bowel habits change, sudden increase in the number of stools, thinner stools, flat stools, or duckbill-shaped stools. This needs to be vigilant. It may be a tumor in the large intestine and anus, which may cause squeezing of the stool. Caused by.
For example, if I used to relieve it once a day, but now I am relieved of stool 5-6 times a day, and the stool volume is small each time, and there are some things like pus and blood, this is likely to be colorectal cancer.
The hospital will take rectal pointers, electronic colonoscopy, X-ray examination and stool occult blood test for patients with colorectal cancer. At least 80% of early colorectal cancer can be detected in these inspection items. Therefore, it is recommended that the majority of friends have regular check-ups to find out and get treatment early.
