Colorectal cancer, less formally known as bowel cancer, is a cancer characterized by neoplasia in the colon, rectum, or vermiform appendix. Colorectal cancer is clinically distinct from anal cancer, which affects the anus. Colorectal cancers start in the lining of the bowel. If left untreated, it can grow into the muscle layers underneath, and then go through the bowel wall. Most begin as a small growth on the bowel wall: a colorectal polyp or adenoma. These mushroom-shaped growths are usually benign, but some develop into cancer over time. Localized bowel cancer is usually diagnosed through colonoscopy.

Colon cancer was rated the most deadly cancer, but yet surprisingly can be cured!

To prevent or try to cure try taking and listening to these tips to do and take

*Surveillance

*Chemotherapy

*Lifestyles

*Nutrition

*Calcium

*Vitamin D

And, there are a lot of therapy’s you can do to like

*Chemotherapy

*Radiation Therapy

*Immunotherapy

* And Surgery

But yet the treatment depends on the stage of the cancer. When colorectal cancer is caught at early stages, with little spread, it can be cured. However, when it is detected at later stages (when distant metastases are present), it is less likely to be curable.

Surgery remains the primary treatment, while chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy may be recommended depending on the individual patient’s staging and other medical factors.

Because colon cancer primarily affects the elderly, it can be a challenge to determine how aggressively to treat a particular patient, especially after surgery. Clinical trials suggest “otherwise fit” elderly patients fare well if they have adjuvant chemotherapy after surgery, so chronological age alone should not be a contraindication to aggressive management.

Survival Rates

According to an article published in the European Journal of Cancer, tumor location impacts colon cancer survival rate. In the United States, for example, the five-year survival rate for tumors in the ascending colon (closest to the small intestine) is about 63%. In the transverse colon, the survival rate is about 59%, and in the descending colon, it’s about 66%. (The five-year survival rate represents the percentage of patients alive five years after their initial diagnosis.)

According to the same study, colon cancer survival rates also vary by country. While the overall five-year survival for colon cancer inAmericais 62%, it’s 43% inEurope. Quality of care may be one reason, but another could be colon cancer screening programs. In general, the earlier colon cancer is detected, the easier it is to treat.

And in Islam, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) says that for all diseases, sickness, pains you can use Black Honey, he says that it can cure anything except death.
