Colon cancer steadily decreasing, according to new reports

Univera Healthcare pledged its support for the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable's "80 percent by 2018" goal of having 80 percent of adults aged 50 and older screened for colorectal cancer by 2018. It's the second-leading cause of death in men and woman, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The good news is that the overall incidence of, and death rates associated with, colorectal cancers have been on the decline for more than a decade, thanks in large part to effective colonoscopy screenings that can detect the disease in its early stages. People who have a history of Crohn's or inflammatory bowel disease or genetic markers should talk with their doctor about starting testing before age 50.

There are several prevention methods like early screening that can reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.

"An important message to learn from the study is that young people can and do get colon and rectal cancer, so they should pay attention to signs and symptoms, and so should their doctors".

The answer is colorectal cancer, a type of cancer that can be silent.

These symptoms can also indicate other health conditions. She says screening colonoscopies can find polyps, which are small growths that can evolve into cancer. Early detection is important because treatments are more likely to be successful for early- rather than late-stage cancer. If you're found to have a polyp, that polyp can be removed before it ever turns cancerous.

Scientists found that Viagra halved the risk of forming polyps, an abnormal clump of cells on the lining of the intestines that have the potential to turn into cancer. A history of the disease in your immediate family puts you at a higher risk for the disease.

Viagra works by relaxing the smooth muscle cells around blood vessels so those vessels can fill with blood much more easily, which is how it helps men with erectile dysfunction and pulmonary hypertension. However, the research also showed increased levels of the chemical cyclic GMP, which is known to affect the intestinal lining called epithelium.

According to Browning, the results of increased cyclic GMP include suppression of some of the excessive cell proliferation that occurs in the gut and an increase in normal cell differentiation as well as the natural elimination of abnormal cells, through a process called apoptosis.

March is a National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month that offers an opportunity to increase your knowledge about symptoms and screenings for the disease.

Colorectal cancer is treatable and the earlier it's detected the better chancer of survival.
