Intestinal Cancer


Intestinal cancer occurs in the intestine. In this, the food gets blocked and it affects the digestion as well. A tumour gets generated inside the intestine and when it gets bigger it causes pain in the abdomen. This tumour only blocks the food to pass and slow bleeding in a tumour can cause anaemia. In severe conditions of obstruction, surgery is recommended on an immediate basis.

What is Instestinal Cancer?

When tumours occur in the intestine and block the food passage and affect digestion then the chance of cancer in intestine increases. The tumours in the intestine are generally non-cancerous in nature. The blockages in the intestine cause pain in the abdomen then surgery is required to remove the tumour.
