Knowing if you have colon polyps can save your life

Colorectal cancer is the 1st leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women in Puerto Rico and the 3rd in the US.

In Puerto Rico, more than 1,500 cases of colon cancer are reported annually. This number is startling and continues to increase every year. The Central Cancer Registry of Puerto Rico stated that 4.9% of the people born in Puerto Rico today will have a colon cancer diagnostic sometime in their lifetime.

Most colon polyps are benign, but some can be malignant and eventually develop into cancer. Anybody can develop colon polyps. You may be more likely to develop colon polyps if:

• you are over 50 years of age

• you have had colon polyps before

• history of polyps in your family

• colorectal cancer history in your family

• you have inflammatory intestine conditions such as ulcerative colitis or Chron’s disease

Quite often, people don’t know that they have colon polyps. Early detection can save your life. This is why it’s very important to see your doctor and undergo regular screening for polyps.

Colon polyps may not cause any symptoms. You might not know you have a polyp until your  doctor finds it during an examination of your bowel.People with colon polyps might experience:

• rectal bleeding

• constipation or diarrhea (more than one week)

• change in stool color or thinner than usual

• vomiting, gases and unexplained weight loss

How to prevent colon polyps?

Doctors don’t know with certainty how to prevent colon polyps, but you can greatly reduce  the risks of developing them if:

• you eat more fruits and vegetables, less fatty foods and red meats

• you don’t smoke and avoid alcohol

• you exercise at least 5 days a week

• you lose weight if you are overweight

• you reduce constipation and toxins stored in your colon

There are natural products that can help you detoxify and clean your colon like Oxy Colon Cleanse.
