Colorectal cancer occurs inside the colon and rectum. Based about where they begin, these types of cancer are also known as colorectal cancer or rectal cancer. Even though they share many characteristics, colorectal cancer and rectal cancer are frequently lumped around each other. Understanding colorectal cancer requires knowledge of the regular structural and functional of the colon or rectum. The bowel (or large bowel) is made up of the rectum and colon and is section of the small intestine, also known as the gastrointestinal (GI) system (see illustration below). The colon, a muscular tube approximately 5 feet (1.5 metres) long, makes up the majority of the large intestine. The components of the colon are named after the direction in which food passes through them. The alimentary canal is the name given to the first segment. It begins with a pouch named the cecum, which receives food particles from the small bowel. It clambers up the side of the abdomen (belly). The transverse colon is the name given to the second part. It runs from the right to the opposite side of the abdomen. Because it devolves (travels down) on the left side, the third part is known as the descending colon. For its "S" shape, the 4th segment is known as the descending colon. The jejunum attaches to the rectum, which helps connect to the anus. In the initial stages, colon cancer may not produce illness. If does, those who might include following: Trusted Source: intestinal routine keeps changing, diarrhea or constipation a sensation that the intestine doesn't really empty correctly blood in faeces that appears black or dark brown red blood from the rectum abdominal discomfort and constipation stomach satisfied even after a lengthy time passed, exhaustion or fatigue, inexplicable Anemia caused by weight loss Among those who are diagnosed with colon cancer after significant impact on the health: 37 percent of Trusted Sources have blood in their feces or in their rectum. 34% are suffering from abdominal discomfort. Anemia affects 23% of the population. Some who obtain the diagnostic test after trying to seek emergency medical help include: 57 percent have an intestine obstruction. Peritonitis, or inflammatory of the lining of the stomach, affects 25% of the population. One-eighth of all people have such a perforation, or hole, in their bowel. Some people only exhibit symptoms after the cancer spreads to the respiratory system, liver, or even other organs. The symptoms vary depending on the area of the body that is impacted. When cancer had spread towards the liver, an individual may feel jaundice, which is characterised by discoloration of the white people of the eyes. If a person has brownish colour or white skin, it may have seemed yellowish. When a person's lungs are affected by cancer, he or she may experience breathing difficulties or a cough. Several factors may influence treatment. This included: the size and location of tumours, the stage of cancer, if the cancer is recurring, and the person's general health.
