This disease has been on the rise for the last few decades, so it is of paramount importance to know the warning signals that the body shows.


The best way to stay safe from any kind of disease is to take right preventive measures or to get a correct diagnosis as soon as the first symptoms hit.

Colon cancer is one of such diseases, and it is highly necessary that one is aware of the signs and symptoms of this disease.

According to Journal of the National Cancer Institute, a research found that people born in 1990 have double the risk for colon cancer compared to those born in the 1950's.

The disease is even riskier in case of women. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, colon cancer is one of the top three leading cause of cancer death among women, just behind breast and lung cancer.


In case of having a family history of colon cancer or rectal cancer, one needs to be even more careful about its signs and symptoms.

1. Changes in Bowel Habits

Diarrhea, constipation, or narrowing of the stool may occur with the changes lasting for more than a few days.

2. Blood

Dark stool or rectal bleeding are often ignored as hemorrhoids, especially in case of women. But they can also be a sign of colon cancer. It is advisable to take the help of a doctor.

3. Pain

Unusual cramping or unexplained abdominal pain may also be risky, so it is best to get an expert opinion of the doctors.
