Colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is a malignant tumor that develops in the colon or rectum. It ranks among the most common cancers worldwide and can be life-threatening if not detected early. It often begins as small, benign growths called polyps, which, over time, can transform into cancerous cells. Understanding colon cancer's early symptoms is crucial for timely intervention.

Common early warning signs include:

Persistent Changes in Bowel Habits: Pay attention to any prolonged alterations in your bowel movements, such as diarrhea, constipation, or changes in stool consistency.

Blood in Stool: The presence of blood in your stool or rectal bleeding should never be ignored. It could be a sign of colon cancer or other gastrointestinal issues.

Abdominal Discomfort: Unexplained abdominal pain, cramps, or discomfort that persists should raise concern.

Unintentional Weight Loss: If you're shedding pounds without trying, it could be an early indicator of colon cancer.

Fatigue and Weakness: Unexplained fatigue or weakness, often accompanied by anemia, can be a sign that something is amiss.

Early detection of colon cancer dramatically increases the chances of successful treatment. Recognizing the signs and symptoms can be a lifesaver.
