With the progress of society and the improvement of the quality of life, the incidence of rectal cancer is increasing year by year. It is reported that the incidence of colorectal cancer ranks third. Since rectal cancer is so serious, how to prevent rectal cancer in women?
The research report pointed out that rectal cancer accounted for 4.9% of all male cancer cases and 1.81% of all female cancer cases. In countries with a higher proportion of meat in the diet, people are more likely to develop rectal cancer, while in Mediterranean countries that eat more seafood, people are less likely to develop rectal cancer.
It is easy for ordinary people to confuse colon cancer, rectal cancer and hemorrhoids. The medical profession often misdiagnoses colon cancer and rectal cancer as hemorrhoids. Although most of the blood in the stool is caused by hemorrhoids, colon cancer and rectal cancer may also coexist with hemorrhoids. There are many clinical symptoms and the most confusing and overlooked. Therefore, if you can receive anal screening regularly, it will reduce the chance of misdiagnosis.
The latest research shows that eating more calcium-rich foods or various calcium supplement products can reduce the risk of rectal cancer in women.
Research data shows that women who consume more than 412 mg of calcium from their diet every day and then supplement at least 800 mg of calcium from calcium supplements have a 46% reduction in their risk of rectal cancer. Therefore, regardless of the form of calcium supplementation, it will play a positive role in the fight against rectal cancer. Researchers recommend that women's daily calcium intake is 1,200 mg.
