Intestinal polyps is a chronic inflammatory disease, which is very detrimental to the patient's health, especially when symptoms appear, it will affect the patient's health and normal life. Once discovered, it must be removed in time to prevent greater impact. So what are the early symptoms of intestinal polyps? Let's take a look at the three major symptoms of intestinal polyps.
Generally, for intestinal polyps, if the polyps are small and the number is small, there are usually no obvious symptoms in the early stage, and a small number of patients may have some symptoms, which are mainly manifested as the following three symptoms:
1. Blood in the stool. If it is a colon polyp, it is most likely to have blood in the stool. When blood in the stool occurs, many patients will think it is hemorrhoids, which may not be treated in time, which may bring greater harm. In fact, the symptoms of hemorrhoids and intestinal polyps are blood in the stool. It is different. Hemorrhoids usually cause blood in the stool to drip after the stool. The blood color is bright red and does not usually bleed. However, for the bleeding caused by colon polyps, it is often mixed in the stool.
2. Changes in bowel habits. When suffering from intestinal polyps, the patient may have changes in the time and frequency of bowel movements, or symptoms such as constipation, unexplained diarrhea, etc., especially if constipation and diarrhea alternately and repeatedly, or accompanied by abdominal pain, then Attention should be paid to the possibility of intestinal polyps, and it is necessary to see a doctor in time for diagnosis.
3. The shape of the stool changes. For normal healthy people, the stool should be cylindrical, and if there are polyps in the colon cavity, it can compress the stool, which will cause the shape of the discharged stool to become thinner or appear flat, and some There will also be blood stains.
The above are the three common symptoms of intestinal polyps. In addition to these three symptoms, there are some larger polyps, which can cause intussusception, cause intestinal obstruction and cause abdominal pain, and if it is a rectal polyp with a pedicle, It is possible that polyps prolapse outside the anus during defecation. This is more common in children. In short, when the above symptoms are similar to intestinal polyps, the patient must see a doctor in time to determine the cause and prevent it in time.
