Panther actor Chadwick boseman died of colon cancer at the age of 43. Bosman was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago.
Colorectal cancer is one of the nine most common malignant tumors in China, and the death rate of colorectal cancer is high every year. Early screening of colorectal cancer can achieve the purpose of early diagnosis, early treatment and improving the curative effect. The most common early screening includes stool screening and colonoscopy.
Studies have shown that the vast majority of patients with colorectal cancer are the first to appear intestinal polyps, due to the lack of timely diagnosis and treatment and gradually develop to colon cancer. Intestinal polyp is an augmentation of intestinal mucosa surface, which generally refers to the tissue growing on the intestinal wall and protruding to the intestinal cavity. In most cases, the small volume, inflammatory or proliferative polyps have low risk of canceration.
Huang Meijin said that in general, the larger the polyp volume, the more likely it is to be malignant or precancerous lesions. Most intestinal polyps do not cause symptoms, so it is difficult for patients to detect by themselves. The most common symptom is bloody stool. Large polyps may also cause abdominal pain or intestinal obstruction or even intussusception (intussusception refers to the intussusception of one segment of the intestine into another, like a folded kaleidoscope).
Intestinal polyps usually need to rely on electronic colonoscopy to be found. When doing colonoscopy, doctors will collect some samples of intestinal polyps to see how much cancer risk they have through pathological examination.
For colorectal cancer, according to the location of the tumor length, the performance is often different.
From normal intestinal mucosa to adenomatous polyp (especially villous adenoma, the probability of canceration reaches 25% - 85%) and then to tumor, it usually takes 5-10 years. During this period, in the absence of symptoms, the normal population began to do colonoscopy at the age of 40, which can play an early role in the detection of colorectal cancer, while the high-risk population needs to be advanced to 35 years old. If polyps are found in the general survey, regular reexamination should be conducted after resection.
Huang Meijin said that in general, whenever any of the above mentioned changes in stool, or unexplained weight loss, anemia, or abdominal lumps are found, they should first go to the Department of Gastroenterology or gastrointestinal surgery of a regular hospital to screen for cancer.
Huang Meijin said that the daily diet advocated eating more high fiber, low-fat food, such as vegetables and fruits, not fried food and animal oil; maintain good living habits, do not smoke, drink less, stay up late, develop the habit of defecation every day to prevent constipation; properly supplement calcium to reduce the occurrence of intestinal polyps.
