Alternative Colon Cancer Treatments
If you believe that you or someone you know may have colon cancer then the first thing you should not do is panic. Options exist, but you will need to do your homework.
First of all, colon cancer can be either misdiagnosed or masked by other intestinal problems, so you have to figure out if the colon cancer exists in the first place. Many of colon cancer’s symptoms are common to those of lesser health challenges. For example, conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease or irritable bowel syndrome can sometimes have the same symptoms as colon cancer.
That being said, even if you figure out that you have one of the “lesser” problems, do not ignore it, since poor intestinal health can eventually evolve into cancer. If the cancer prognosis is confirmed, then the next step is determining how far it has spread, and then choosing your treatment therapy. While most people turn to conventional treatments as a first instinct, you need to understand the consequences of going in that direction. Keep in mind that many effective alternative and holistic colon cancer treatments are available that can help you avoid the toxicity and side effects of conventional therapies.
Some Possible Signs of Colon Cancer
One of the most common symptoms of colon cancer is abdominal pain, or blood in the stool. While these symptoms could be signs of a lesser condition (for example, hemorrhoids), you should always err on the side of caution and get these symptoms evaluated by a specialist capable of making an unequivocal diagnosis. If you suspect a problem, a colonscopy is just an appointment away with your health establishment.
Here are some symptoms that you should be aware of that might be associated with colon cancer:
- Abdominal pain
- Hardness in the abdomen
- Change in stool
- Several days or more of diarrhea
- Abdominal pain during bowel movement
- Bowel movements with obstructions
- Cramps, gas pain, or discomfort
- Unexpected weight loss
- Iron deficiency
- Rectal bleeding
The key to the effectiveness of treating colon cancer is early detection which means it is important not to ignore any symptoms, especially if they are persistent. Colon cancer accounts for up to 90% of all cancers of the intestines, and is the fourth highest cause of cancer mortality in the United States after lung, prostate and breast cancer, and the second highest that affects both sexes.
The 5-year survival rate ranges from 74% for Stage I patients to a dismal 6% for Stage IV patients. As the disease progresses, the chances of surviving the cancer diagnosis past 5 years using conventional methods of treatment are remote.
