What causes colorectal cancer? by Dr. Parameshwara C M

Dr. Parameshwara CM

JAN 08 2019, 01:00AM IST

As more than 90% of the cases of colorectal cancer are encountered in people over the age of 50 years.

Age and lifestyle are the main factors that cause colorectal cancer. Physical inactivity, increased alcohol consumption, smoking, and irregular and unhealthy diet are the major risk factors. Some of the recent studies have shown that a diet with a low fibre and high-fat content can lead to colorectal cancer, which is a common trait of western fast food. Apart from these, drinking water less than the recommended amount can also lead to the deterioration of natural bowel system and induce the development of polyps. Age also plays a crucial role, as more than 90% of the cases of colorectal cancer are encountered in people over the age of 50 years.

What are the symptoms?

At times, people may not see any symptoms during the early stage of colorectal cancer or they may experience some changes in their bowel habits. The symptoms of rectal cancer include diarrhea or constipation constantly occurring for nearly four weeks or more, rectal bleeding or blood in stool, abdominal pain, stomach cramps, or gastritis. Colorectal cancer can also co-exist with hemorrhoids or fissure. The affected person has the feeling that bowel doesn’t empty properly. These adversities further lead to weakness, fatigue and weight loss. The intensity of these symptoms also varies depending upon the stage of cancer and its location in the body.

If patients experience intermittent abdominal pain, irregular bowel movements, loss of weight and passage of blood during defecation, they should seek a doctor’s help.

What are the other types of digestive diseases?

Diseases of the digestive system can affect the whole body if not addressed in time with proper treatment or medical counselling. Some of the common digestive diseases include GERD, gall stones, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, haemorrhoids, etc. Here are some of the most common problems:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)Repetitive stomach pain or irritating bowel for a long time can be a symptom of irritable bowel syndrome. Generally identified with symptoms like chronic constipation, diarrhoea, or bloating, IBS is a very common disease among 10-15% of the world’s population.
  • Gallstones: These are hard deposits in the gallbladder, and are usually a result of excessive cholesterol or waste in bile. Medication or surgery is the only solution for this disease.
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): GERD is one of the most common digestive diseases that is often characterised as burning pain in the middle of the chest or upper abdomen. Commonly named as ‘heartburn’, it occurs when stomach acids back up into oesophagus creating an acid reflux. Doctors usually recommend antacids and analgesics.
  • Ulcerative colitis: A celiac disease that’s related to gluten sensitivity, ulcerative colitis causes bowel inflammation, mainly in the large intestine.
  • Haemorrhoids: These result in inflammation of the blood vessels in the digestive tract and blood in the stool.

Apart from these, the formation of polyps under uncommon health conditions may lead to dreaded diseases like stomach cancer, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer and colorectal cancer.

Busy lifestyle and irregular food habits have severely impacted human health. India, in particular, has encountered an increase in digestive diseases over years.

Woman suffering with obstructive defecation since 26 years treated in city

ODS is common among women aged between 45 and 60. Between 2% to 30% of people in the Western world are afflicted with chronic constipation, and 30% to 50% of them have ODS.

City doctors cured a Mysuru woman of chronic constipation, for which she had been consulting doctors for 26 years.

Hema (name changed) got the disorder treated recently at Smiles International Institute of Colo-Proctology (SIICP) in Mathikere.

Doctors at the institute diagnosed her with obstructive defecation syndrome (ODS), also known as ‘iceberg syndrome’, and performed a Stapled Transanal Rectal Resection procedure on her.

Hema is doing well after the surgery.

ODS is common among women aged between 45 and 60. Between 2% to 30% of people in the Western world are afflicted with chronic constipation, and 30% to 50% of them have ODS.

‘Complex disease’ 

Doctors describe ODS as a complex disease that is difficult to diagnose and needs to be treated in multiple ways.

Patients get a sensation of blocked defecation and will find it harder to empty the rectal contents. This will make them endure prolong and unnecessary strain.

Colorectal Cancer – A Clear Danger

Eight months after Bharat Reddy, 39, had a surgery for piles, his symptoms that also included rectal bleeding did not improve. Our experts did a thorough evaluation of the patient and diagnosed that Reddy had rectal cancer. Physicians at SIICP performed a Low Anterior Resection on Reddy. It has been 15 days and he is recovering now. But our doctor say that his case is among the many rising incidents of colorectal cancer.

Since rectal bleeding is a common symptom, associated with piles and other colo-rectal disorders, it is easy to miss it. Our founder and chief Dr Parameshwara CM says, “A patient who is bleeding from the rectum must be aware that they may not have piles alone and that they may also have rectal cancer or colon cancer. Such patients should seek the help of a healthcare professional or a super-specialist.

Explaining the symptoms of colorectal, Dr Parameshwara said, “Physical inactivity, increased alcohol consumption, smoking, and irregular and unhealthy diet are the major risk factors. Some recent studies have shown that a diet with low-fibre and high-fat can lead to colorectal cancer. Western fast food is an example of low-fibre, high-fat diet as is a diet rich in red meat and processed meat.”

What is concerning is that people may not experience any symptoms during the early stage of colorectal cancer. At most, they may experience some changes in their bowel habits. Dr Parameshwara C M added, “The symptoms of rectal cancer include diarrhoea or constipation occurring constantly for nearly four weeks or longer, rectal bleeding or blood in the stool, abdominal pain, stomach cramps, or gastritis. Colorectal cancer can also coexist with haemorrhoids or fissures.”

Painless, Bloodless & Minimally Invasive Surgeries

At SIICP, we are specialized in painless, bloodless and minimally invasive procedures.
