In fact, there are many misunderstandings about colorectal cancer in people’s minds, which may lead to wrong medical cognition of the disease, and even delay or hinder colorectal cancer patients to get the corresponding diagnosis and treatment.Today, we are going to analyze nine common misconceptions about colorectal cancer. If you have any questions about these problems, you can also consult a specialist.Colorectal cancer is fatal this view is not accurate, the cure rate of colorectal cancer inchoate is not low actually, according to the statistical data before American colon and rectum surgeon association, the patient of local colorectal cancer of 90% above is in no one dies inside 5 years after diagnosis, belong to cure on medicine.The problem, however, is that only 37 percent of patients are diagnosed with colorectal cancer in its early stages. Most colorectal cancer patients are screened later, but when the cancer begins to spread outside the intestinal wall or to other parts of the body, treatment becomes more difficult, and the cure rate drops.Colorectal cancer can’t be prevented this is not true, colorectal cancer can be prevented.Most patients start from large intestine polyps, and then slowly form cancer cells, and regular screening can be found as early as possible, and before polyp cancer can be treated by surgery.In general, large polyps can be removed by colonoscopy, but if they are large, doctors may first remove them through an endoscope before considering surgery to remove part of the large intestine or rectum.Other ways to prevent colorectal cancer include eating a low-fat diet, eating more fruits and vegetables and exercising regularly.Can’t get colorectal cancer under 50?It is true that the majority of colorectal cancer patients are over 50, but that does not mean that people under 50 are immune to colorectal cancer.In recent years, the incidence of colorectal cancer in people under 50 has been increasing. The cause is unknown, but it is thought to be due to changes in diet, especially the current high-calorie and high-fat diet, or genetic diseases, smoking and obesity.New research suggests that certain foods have a negative effect on the microbiome, or bacterial population, of the large intestine, which may increase the risk of colorectal cancer.Therefore, if the patient noticed some gastrointestinal abnormalities, please consult a professional doctor as soon as possible.People with a family history of colorectal cancer may want to be screened for the disease earlier because they are at higher risk.It is not true that colorectal cancer only affects men. Both men and women can develop colorectal cancer, although the incidence is slightly higher in men, but colorectal cancer is not a male disease.In fact, the proportion of women with colorectal cancer is not a minority.A person with a family history of developing colorectal cancer is of course not, according to the investigation and study of the relevant medical institutions found that if the risk factors of the age, about 75% of new cases of colorectal cancer were no risk factors, and have a family history of colorectal cancer are not suffering from colorectal cancer, as long as make regular checks on a regular basis, completes the life habits of adjustment,The prevalence rate will also go down.Evidence suggests that eating red or processed meat increases the risk of colorectal cancer: eating 100g of red meat a day increases the risk of cancer by about 17%, and the risk of ingesting carcinogens increases especially when eating more than 500g a week.Modern medicine suggests that this may be due to bad chemicals produced by high temperatures, or to the blood-based iron in red meat, which promotes the growth of cancer cells.Therefore, it is recommended not to eat more than 50g of red meat a day and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.Have symptom of large intestine cancer just should go checking large intestine cancer inchoate does not have a symptom almost, need development of a few years normally, symptom just can show gradually, but arrived this stage, large intestine cancer already became mostly hard cure.It is recommended that both men and women begin regular colorectal cancer screening at the age of 45. If they have a history of inflammatory bowel disease, a family history of colorectal cancer, or if they have ovarian, endometrial and breast cancer themselves or their families, they should be screened before the age of 45. The exact details of colorectal cancer screening should follow the instructions of professional doctors.Is colonoscopy the only diagnostic test?Colonoscopy is not the only screening method for colorectal cancer, of course. Other screening methods include stool test, CT scan of the colon (also known as virtual colonoscopy), flexible sigmoidoscopy and so on.Doctors will choose the appropriate test based on the patient’s health and acceptability. However, colonoscopy is the most commonly used method because it detects a wide range of polyps and cancer cells in the large intestine and can be removed immediately if polyps are found.Will the colonoscopy be very painful?Generally speaking, before the colonoscopy, the patient is usually given sedatives to relieve discomfort, so the patient will not feel pain or even remember the procedure, but even without sedatives, the procedure is tolerable.Colonoscopy usually takes about 30 minutes, and can normally resume daily activities by the next day.It’s painful the day before the colonoscopy, because patients need to take purgants to help clear their intestines, so that the exam can go smoothly the next day, but the price is to have frequent defecation, and a few days after the test will also feel bloated.# Healthy over the Year # Say No to cancer # @Headlines refuted
