Colorectal cancer is caused by the uncontrolled growth of cells in the colon or rectum. It may take years to develop, and at the early stage, there may only be an abnormal growth of tissues known as polyps. However, these polyps can then develop into cancer if left untreated or not removed.
In some cases, people with colorectal cancer have no abnormal symptoms, so they do not know that they have cancer. That’s why a check-up is important to find the polyps before they turn into cancer, especially if you are at risk.
But the question is, ARE YOU AT RISK? Let us find out in this session of Stay Healthy Doctor Talk. Dr. Navara Dusitanond, a specialist for Colorectal & General Surgery, shared his expertise on this topic.
