The causes of colorectal cancer remain unknown however there is on-going research to determine them. Evidence so far suggests that a red meat rich diet and a sedentary lifestyle are linked to developing the disease. The most common signs of colorectal cancer are: passing blood, a change in bowel habits, unexplained weight loss, and pain in the stomach or back passage. Sometimes other symptoms include bloating, vomiting and constipation. At the LOC private treatments for colorectal cancer are performed by specialist consultants in the field, who will help to plan and implement the best course of treatment for each individual case.
