Colon Cancer Patients Have Urinary Problems?
I want to ask why colon cancer patients have BAK disorders
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Colon cancer is a term for excessive, uncontrolled, and malignant cell growth in the large intestine. This condition generally afflicts people who are elderly. The cause is related to a genetic mutation that has the potential to be passed down from other family members. In addition, several other factors, such as consuming too much red meat, lack of fiber, consuming alcohol, smoking, obesity, diabetes, rarely exercising, and also having digestive disorders (eg ulcerative colitis) can also increase a person's risk of developing colon cancer.
Symptoms of colon cancer can vary depending on the size and stage of the cancer. However, some of the common complaints are bloody bowel movements, constipation or diarrhea, drastic weight loss, fatigue, weakness, abdominal pain (especially the lower part), decreased appetite, and so on.
Not all people with colon cancer will experience urinary problems. It is necessary to clarify first what kind of urination disorder do you mean? Urinary disorders can appear in patients with colon cancer if the size is large enough to cause pressure to the bladder. In addition, urinary disorders can also occur due to metastasis (spread of cancer cells) to the urinary system, such as the kidneys, ureters, bladder, or urethra. Urinary disorders can vary, can be in the form of increased frequency of urination, not urinating smoothly, abdominal pain when urinating, bloody urination, and so on.
Consult directly with the treating doctor so that it is clear what exactly is the cause of the urination disorder you are experiencing. In addition to a physical examination, the doctor may also recommend other supporting examinations, such as urine tests, x-rays, ultrasound, cystography, and so on. Subsequent treatment will be adjusted to the condition that underlies the patient's complaint.
Hope it helps ya..
