What Is It?
Colorectal Cancer; colon cancer is cancer in the large intestine, which is part of the digestive tract. Mayo Clinic explains that clumps of cells called polyps produce in this area and grow into cancerous cells. This causes distress in the digestive tract, change in bowel, abdominal discomfort, fatigue, etc.
More detailed information of Colorectal Cancer and symptoms can be found at Mayoclinic.org
Our pharmacy suggests if you are feeling these symptoms or are within the age group of 45 to 75 to get a screening done. Again, our pharmacist is happy to provide insight on the topic, but it is best to visit your doctor. If you need a prescription, please have your doctor relay the information to our pharmacist.
