Aunt Wang is 72 years old this year. She has a happy family. The children are promising and very filial. These promising children are too busy. She has nothing to do and seldom troubles them. The most happy thing for her is to give her children. We cook, watching everyone come back to eat the meal she cooked!
She has had blood intermittently for 5 years, the color is bright red, and there is no pain. She eats and sleeps very well. She is afraid of disturbing the children and affecting the children’s work. She has kept the secret from the children, but just told her wife. Let my wife take a look at the blood in the urinal. My wife said hemorrhoids in the stool. So she felt relieved, and she didn't expect to go to the hospital for an examination. Later, after the symptoms gradually worsened, I talked to the children casually. The children hurriedly took her to the hospital for examination. The pathological results obtained by colonoscopy showed that it was rectal cancer, so he hurried to operate.
If Aunt Wang went to the hospital when symptoms of blood in the stool appeared, early diagnosis and early treatment, perhaps in the adenoma stage, could prevent further development of the disease.
If you have any symptoms of discomfort, you must go to the hospital for examination in time to prevent minor illnesses from becoming serious. Early examination and treatment can also cut off the progress of certain cancers, so that the disease can be eliminated at the stage of benign tumors, and there is no future trouble. There can be no symptoms in the early stage of intestinal tumors, and only regular colonoscopy can find the early lesions. The United States recommends colonoscopy once a year after the age of 50. Some hospitals in China recommend colonoscopy once a year after the age of 35 or 40. My personal suggestion is that people without a family history of tumors can undergo colonoscopy once a year after the age of 50, and those with a family history of tumors can be checked early. 35 is a good age to start the examination.
