    • It has been found that certain kinds of cancers are moreprevalent than others. Research at the time of thiswriting indicates that about 100,000 people in the US arediagnosed with colorectal cancer. Unfortunately thecause of this type of cancer has not been determined.The good news is that researchers have identified somefactors that can potentially increase your risk of gettingthis type of cancer.The main risk factor in getting colorectal cancer is age. Asan individual gets older, the risk of getting this type ofcancer is greater. Some research shows that with eachpassing decade, your risk becomes greater. Otherresearch indicates that individuals over 50 are the onesthat are most likely to get this disease. However youngerindividuals can get this disease as well, so they will needto be aware of it as well.
    • Another risk factor is if there are polyps in an individual’scolon or rectum. Polyps are benign. However one type inparticular, adenoma polyps, is considered a sign ofcolocteral cancer. There are some doctors that will evenconsider these the first stage of this cancer. However itshould also be noted that polyps, including adenomas,are associated with age and do usually develop inindividuals over the age of 50.Another risk factor is family history. If you have a historyof cancer in your family, then your risk factor doesincrease. This risk factor goes up even more if yourparents or siblings have had the disease. Also if morethan one of you family members have had colorectalcancer, your risk will be even higher. And your risk willincrease as well if family members have had or haveadenoma polyps.
    • Other disease of the colon and rectum can also increaseyour risk of cancer. This is especially true when anindividual has one of the many chronic diseasesassociated with this part of the body, such as Crohnsdisease and ulcerative colitis. Another risk factor iswomen that have a history of breast, uterine and ovariancancer. Another medical condition that will increase yourrisk factor is diabetes. Some research indicates thatindividuals that have diabetes have a 30 to 40 percentmore likely to develop this condition.The one risk factor you can control is your lifestyle. Poordiet and lack of exercise can also increase your chancesof developing colorectal cancer. A diet rich in fatty foodsand poor in fiber can lead to gastrointestinal problemsand colorectal cancer. Some research also indicates thatsmoking, drinking alcohol and a sedentary lifestyle canalso increase your risk as well
    • Since there is nothing you can do about most of theserisk factors. Every individual should follow their doctor’sadvice on getting regular colorectal cancer screenings.Individuals with any of the factors that increase the riskof colorectal cancer should definitely be aware of thisdisease and ensure they get their screenings. Screeningsare the best possible preventative measure that anindividual can take at this time.Learn Ways To Heal Cancer for Free atwww.custom-hypnosis.com/cancer
