1. Blood In The Stool
Firstly, the most common and frequent early signs shown in every eight out of ten adults with colon cancer is the trace of blood in the stool. From what we can tell, traces of blood found in the stool reveals active intestinal mucosal pain. The pain is only intensified when the cancerous lesion stretches out to a point of coming in contact with a blood vessel.
Just like every other forced exit of blood from the human body, the colour comes out red. This is because the blood cells get little or no time to become digested by the digestive tract. That is why when the blood exits the body with the stool, it still looks as fresh as the way it would from a minor bruise. Sometimes, it takes more than a naked eye to catch the blood traces on the stool. That is why it is advised to contact a specialist for further diagnosis.
