Whether you are a man or woman, it is important to know the signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer. This cancer begins in the colon or rectum, which are part of the large intestine. The large intestine is the lower part of the digestive system. It is also called the large bowel.
The colon and rectum are about 5 feet long. They are connected at the end of the large intestine. The colon absorbs water and stores waste matter. The rectum is the passageway that connects the colon to the anus. The anus is the opening at the end of the digestive system, through which stool leaves the body.
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States, after lung cancer.
Men and women of all racial and ethnic groups can get colorectal cancer. But this disease is most common in African Americans. Colorectal cancer is also more common in men than in women.
Certain factors can increase your risk of colorectal cancer. These include:
- A personal history of colorectal cancer or polyps
- A family history of colorectal cancer or polyps
- A personal history of inflammatory bowel disease
- A diet high in fat and low in fiber
- A sedentary lifestyle
- Heavy alcohol use
- Type 2 diabetes
Colorectal cancer may not cause any signs or symptoms in its early stages. But it can cause bleeding from the rectum or blood in the stool. These signs and symptoms may also be caused by other conditions. So it is important to see your doctor if you have any of them.
If colorectal cancer does cause signs or symptoms, they may include:
- A change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea, constipation, or narrowing of the stool, that lasts for more than a few days
- A feeling that you need to have a bowel movement that is not relieved by doing so
- Rectal bleeding
- Blood in the stool, which may make the stool look dark red or black
- Cramping or pain in the abdomen
- Weakness and fatigue
- Unintended weight loss
If you have any of these signs or symptoms, it is important to see your doctor.
There are several tests that can be used to find out if you have colorectal cancer. These tests may be used alone or in combination.
