Bowel cancer

Bowel cancer

The cause of bowel cancer can be old age, cancer amongst family members, certain inflammatory conditions of the bowel, alcohol abuse and the presence of protuberances in the lumen of the bowel, known as polyps. Patients may have bleeding from the anus, diarrhoea or constipation, abdominal pain or a feeling of a mass in the anus while defecating. Patients are diagnosed with the help of a flexible telescope inside the bowel which extracts tissue for a biopsy for examination by a colorectal surgeon or oncologist
