He introduced that the incidence of colorectal cancer has been generally higher in China in recent years, and there is no special regional characteristic.
The cause of the disease is mainly the changes in our living environment and diet.
He pointed out that "colorectal cancer develops from changes in intestinal function, chronic inflammation, and polyps," is a very long process, the longest even for decades.
How to prevent colorectal cancer?
He said that the first step is to improve the diet, especially meat foods should be properly controlled.
Second, reduce the impact of pesticides and fertilizers in food.
The third is a regular and balanced diet.
Fourth, the daily routine should be regular, especially the supper should be eaten less, because the burden on the intestines is particularly serious.
Fifth, we must have regular physical examinations, especially those with a family history of bowel cancer.
It takes an average of 3-5 years to do it. If polyps are found, they must be removed immediately.
He specifically mentioned that early screening for prevention and treatment of colorectal cancer is very important.
Finger examination is a very important examination, because 1/3 of rectal cancer occurs in the middle and lower part of the rectum, which can be touched with fingers. It is a very convenient examination. It is recommended that you do not ignore this examination.
