1 Bowel changes
Everyone has a unique bowel pattern and it doesn’t change very often unless you are a teenager or a young adult. Occasional bowel changes are normal but frequent changes could mean colon cancer. Colon cancer affects the entire colon. Frequent diarrhea and constipation are an indication of cancer. If you are witnessing frequent bowel changes or sharp pain in your abdomen, it is important to get yourself checked.
2 Rectal Bleeding
Rectal bleeding can be an early sign of rectal cancer. If you experience severe pain in your rectum and see blood each time you pass stool, then you could have rectal cancer. It is very difficult to self-diagnose rectal or colon cancer at such an early stage, hence, it is a must that you get regular rectal scanning after the age of 50.
