The signs of intestinal polyps canceration are mostly in the stool?
The signs of intestinal polyps canceration are mostly in the stool? Find these 3 signs. Please go to the hospital as soon as possible.
If you belong to a high-risk group of bowel cancer, once the above symptoms appear, it is likely to be a signal that the intestine has become malignant, and you should pay more attention to it.
“Polyps” must be familiar to everyone, it is the extra “meat” that grows out of human body tissues!
Polyps are a kind of benign tumors. Polyps may grow on any cavity organs with mucosal distribution. However, in terms of clinical practice in some countries, the most common polyps are “intestinal polyps”.
There are two main clinical classifications of colorectal polyps, namely, adenoma and non-adenomatous polyps. Among them, non-adenomatous polyps have almost no possibility of malignant transformation, such as inflammatory polyps and hyperplastic polyps!
But adenomatous polyps are different. They are clinically divided into three categories: tubular, villous and mixed adenomas. No matter which type of these three appear, there is the possibility of malignant transformation.
According to clinical studies, more than 80% of all colorectal cancer patients in some countries develop from adenomatous polyps, and it may only take a few years or more than ten years from polyps to cancer!
If you have a family history of adenomatous polyps, have a history of adenoma disease, and the following three abnormalities have suddenly appeared in your stool recently, beware of signs of intestinal cancer, and you need to see a doctor for examination in time:
1. Repeated diarrhea
Relevant clinical studies have shown that in the early stages of colorectal cancer, many patients have symptoms of bowel habit disorders, especially frequent and recurrent diarrhea. The stools discharged by patients with diarrhea have a large amount of visible mucus. miscellaneous.
The reason for this is that cancers in the intestinal tract have formed. They will constantly stimulate the intestinal mucosa and change the secretion of the mucosa, resulting in faster intestinal peristalsis, a large number of secretions, and bacterial flora disorder, so the patient has stool. Habits will also change, and abnormal manifestations such as pseudodiarrhea and incomplete defecation will appear.
2. From diarrhea to constipation
In the past, there was an increase in stool frequency and recurrent diarrhea, but recently, symptoms of difficulty in defecation and constipation suddenly appeared, which may also be related to intestinal cancer.
Because intestinal cancer will continue to grow as cancer cells double and proliferate, they can infiltrate toward the cancer of the intestinal wall, causing the patient’s intestinal cavity to become narrower and narrower, and even intestinal obstruction may occur. Stools cannot pass through the intestines smoothly, and there is a symptom of difficulty defecation.
At the same time, the stool will be squeezed by cancer and change its shape. For example, small flat strips, small thin strips of stool, and stool with dents or blood stains on one side are common manifestations of bowel cancer. However, because these symptoms are very similar to constipation, hemorrhoids, etc., it is easy for patients to ignore them.
3. Symptoms of blood in the stool
Bloody stool is the most typical symptom of bowel cancer. Almost all patients with colorectal cancer will have different degrees of bloody stool after the disease enters the advanced stage. The more the bloody stool enters the advanced stage, the more obvious the bloody stool. The cause of intestinal cancer inducing bloody stools is related to the direct invasion of blood vessels by cancer cells and the necrosis and erosion of some cancer tissues.
In the initial stage, the patient does not discharge visible blood in the stool, but mainly fecal occult blood. As the disease progresses, the erosion and necrosis of the cancer tissue, the patient will discharge a mixed bloody stool that is visible to the naked eye, the blood is dark red or deep red, and a large amount of mucus or pus is mixed in it, and sometimes the stool is also visible to the naked eye Blood clots, necrotic tissue.
In addition to the above three symptoms, patients with bowel cancer will also have abdominal pain, anal pain, weight loss and progressive fatigue, anemia and other symptoms.
If you belong to a high-risk group of bowel cancer, once the above symptoms appear, it is likely to be a sign that the intestine has become malignant. You should pay more attention to it, seek medical attention in time, and carry out relevant screening according to the doctor’s recommendation.
