Oncologist Karasev spoke about the danger of pain in the navel
Small intestine cancer is one of the most difficult to diagnose oncological diseases, said oncologist Ivan Karasev, Channel Five reports.
According to him, relatively asymptomatic development leads to the fact that cancer is detected in the last stages by chance. At the same time, if small intestine cancer is diagnosed at the initial and middle stages, then it can be cured in 80 percent of cases.
According to Karasev, five symptoms should alert the patient: nausea and vomiting, bloating, pain in the navel, constipation or diarrhea, and blood in the stool. The oncologist attributed to the risk group people with chronic bowel diseases. In addition, cancer is dangerous for patients with adenomatous polyps of the small intestine, polyposis syndromes. He called the risk group and those who have a hereditary predisposition.
To reduce the risk of getting cancer of the small intestine, the doctor recommended eating less fatty, fried foods, and smoked foods.
