How to Know If it’s Appendix Cancer?

Cancer as a disease has been growing at a frightening rate in our modern world. The reason for the increasing prevalence of different types of cancers is the lifestyle we have adapted ourselves to.The thing that makes cancers difficult to cure even though we have made such great strides in technology, is the fact that we are fighting a battle with our own body. Secondly, the question why cancer form at all doesn’t have a certain answer. Also many types of cancers are relatively new or rare.One of such rare types of cancers is Appendix cancer. The appendix is a pouch like tube attached to the cecum, the first section of the colon or the large intestine. It is 4 inches in length and of no significant function in the body. It is a vestigial organ. Appendix cancer occurs when the cells of the appendix begin to grow and behave abnormally. This results in a malignant tumour.

Appendix Cancer or appendicial cancer sometimes does not cause any symptoms. Other times symptoms might be vague and easily ignored until a serious problem materialises. But most of the times, there are symptoms like:

·         Pain in the lower-right section of abdomen, where the appendix is
·         Bloating, due to fluid build-up
·         Acid reflux
·         Lack of appetite
·         Shortness of breath
·         Diarrhoea or constipation
·         Problems in digesting food
·         Fever
·         Nausea and vomiting

If you experience any of the symptoms of appendix cancer, consult a doctor immediately. Cancers are easily curable if treatment is started at an early stage. There are oncologists in Gurgaon, as well as oncologists in Patna which specialize in treating cancers of this sort.
