Bowel cancer symptoms: Having this colour stools could signal the deadly disease
BOWEL cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK and the second biggest cancer killer. Symptoms of the disease can be subtle and doesn ’t necessarily make a person feel ill. But having a certain colour stools could signal the deadly disease.
In conclusion, two molecular subtypes have been consistently identified in our series of CD-SBCs, a microsatellite instability-immune and a mesenchymal subtype, the former likely associated with an indolent and the latter with a worse tumor behavior.
New research uses Mendelian randomization and genetic data to study potential causal relations between certain types of gut bacteria and bowel cancer.
A Bristol University paper studying how someone's gut bacteria could affect their health found that people with more of a certain type - named Bacteroidales - were more likely to get bowel cancer.
People who have a certain type of bacteria in their guts may be at greater risk of developing bowel cancer. The findings will be presented by University of Bristol researcher, Dr Kaitlin Wade, at the 2019 NCRI Cancer Conference in Glasgow today [Monday 4 November].

BOWEL cancer symptoms are not always obvious because they don ’t necessarily make you feel ill. But with the cancer being one of the most common cancers in the UK, it’s important to recognise the signs when they do appear. If your stools appear a certain shape, there’s a chance you could have the disease.
GPs should order more chest X-rays, encourage bowel cancer screening and trust their gut instincts, if they want to catch cancers at an earlier stage, the RCGP's annual conference was told.Medscape News UK
This article presents a service evaluation of an innovative, nurse-led telephone follow-up service for a group of elective bowel cancer patients following surgery. METHODS: the records of patients who underwent surgery over a 2-year period were accessed to determine the number of telephone follow-ups and other investigations. This was used to model the potential cost saving for commissioners against traditional clinic follow-up. Patient satisfaction was assessed by the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer questionnaire on Outpatient Satisfaction in 30 patients. RESULTS: feedback on the servi...
There were 1.8million new cases of bowel cancer in 2017, up by 9.5 per cent over the last 27 years. Figures show 52,331 people were diagnosed with the disease in 2017 and 209,237 in the US.
