Early colon cancer screening can be life saving

Early colon cancer screening can be life saving”

Dr Hadi Abu Rasheed, supervisor, Health Education at QCS, pointed out that colorectal cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the colon or the rectum and most colorectal cancers begin as a growth called a polyp on the inner lining of the colon or rectum.

After six years of follow-up, 2,391 people went on to develop bowel cancer.

"This study poses interesting questions such as why screen time from computers did not increase the risk of bowel cancer but watching TV did", said Linda Bauld, Cancer Research UK's prevention expert.

As it turned out in the course of the study, which was attended by 430 people, including not only men but also women, watching television can contribute to cancer in the first.

After analyzing the data, the team also found that the link between sedentary behaviour (like watching TV) and women was not seen.

"What we do know is that keeping a healthy weight, cutting back on alcohol, being physically active and eating a diet rich in fruit and vegetables are known to cut your risk of bowel cancer", Murphy adds.

There are non-modifiable risk factors such as; age-incidence and death rates for colorectal cancer increase with age (50 years and older); gender; colorectal cancer incidence and mortality rates are higher in men than in women; family history first-degree relative (parent, sibling, or child) with colorectal cancer or polyps.

It is updated in a March 2017 study gets released by American Cancer Society that the rate of rectal cancer and colon cancer are getting increased in the middle and young age.

It's also reported that seven per cent of all colorectal cancers in Canada are tied to people under 50.

In men specifically, about 14,900 were estimated to be diagnosed, and 5,100 had died from colorectal cancer.
