About colon cancer

Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States with over 130,000 new diagnosed cases every year. Obesity causes changes in the colon that can predispose a person to colorectal cancer. This makes a healthy diet and exercise a key strategy to lower the risk for colon cancer. If you are not obese now, keep in mind that preexisting colon lesions will be more likely to evolve rapidly into malignant tumors if you should become obese. Some of the symptoms of colorectal cancer to watch for are: changes in stools and bowel habits, such as diarrhea, constipation, or narrowing of the stool, that lasts for more than a few days, feeling constipated after bowel movements, rectal bleeding, blood in stools or black stools, persistent cramping or abdominal pain, ongoing weakness, fatigue and unintended weight loss. Change your lifestyle now – before something like colon cancer gets a grip on you.
