Today, I’m going to talk to you about colorectal cancer, also known as colon cancer. Let’s see, what is colorectal cancer? I know that some of you may know what it is and others may not, so I’ll make sure to explain o.k.
According to Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine, colorectal cancer is a malignant disease of the large intestine. It is characterized by a change in bowel habits and it has to do with the passing of blood through the rectal. Malignant tumors of the large bowel usually occur after 50 years of age, are slightly more frequent in women than in men, and are common in the Western world. They are rare in children; clustering in families is common.
According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths in the United States. However, early diagnosis can often lead to a complete cure.
What are the symptoms of colon cancer?
Symptoms of colorectal cancer are numerous and nonspecific. They include fatigue, weakness, and shortness of breath. Also change in bowel habits, narrow stools, and diarrhea to name a few.

Wow, this cancer guy is something else. He comes into our bodies just to destroy it. That’s why I’m taking charge to keep both you and I aware of his (the cancer) sneaky ways of devouring our temple (bodies). We need to take as much precautions as possible so that we can kill him “THE CANCER” as oppose to him killing us.
