Colon Cancer is Developed in Younger People
According to statistics, the colon cancer that was only developed in middle-aged and elder people has been “keeping an eye” on people around 30 years old furthermore, recently more and more cases with colon cancer are less than age 30. This tendency greatly results from the busy working style and unhealthy eating habits of those young people.
The Colon Cancer "Covered" by Hemorrhoids
Speaking of hemorrhoids, a lot of people often do not pay attention to it, but there are about 50%-80% of patients with colon cancer were initially misdiagnosed as hemorrhoids and thus missed the best treatment time. Such high misdiagnosis rate is mainly lead by its similar clinical manifestations with hemorrhoids, such as blood in stool, Sensation of rectal tenesmus, bowel movements that are either more or less frequent than normal, among which blood in stool is the most prominently similar symptom.
Although it seems similar, they still have distinction, for example, the stool of colon cancer patients is mixed with pus and blood as well as mucus, while the stool from patients with hemorrhoids, anal fissure and intestinal polyps is not mixed blood but attached to the surface of stool and the blood is fresh red. In addition, bowel habits of patients with colon cancer will also change, because the cancer growth affects the normal physiological function of intestinal tract.
The Waist-hip Ratio is closely associated with Colon Cancer
Research showed that the body type is associated with colon cancer greatly and the people with too large waist-hip ratio have high risk of colon cancer. Compared to men with the ratio less than 0.89, the risk is 51% higher in men with the ratio over 0.99 while women with the ratio more than 0.85 have 52% of higher risk than that of women with ratio less than 0.73.
This research proved that obesity has been associated with an increased risk of colon cancer. It can be noticed that the colon cancer patients are almost overweight in many hospitals, of which the majority is severely obese, so overweight people should usually measure your waistline and hip circumference and men with the ratio over 0.9 and women with the ratio over 0.85 should pay more attention to the risk of colon cancer.
