Colo-rectal Cancer can be successfully treated. But can you still get affordable life insurance?
Put plainly, Colo-rectal Cancer is a pain in the ass. (Pardon the pun.) According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, Colo-rectal Cancer is the 2nd leading cancer killer in the U.S. Colo-rectal Cancer is a cancer that affects the colon and rectum, with tumors forming in the lining of the large intestine.
Symptoms of this cancer include: diarrhea or constipation, blood in the stool, frequent gas pains or cramps, sudden weight loss, fatigue, and nausea or vomiting. Tests for this type of cancer include a colonoscopy and checking for blood in the stool. The National Institute of Health recommends that both men and women start getting screened for Colo-rectal cancer after age 50.
