The colon cancer is really frequent, not always deadly or scary but a lot of people get it. Only in 2016, 140,000 people got it – either in the form of a colon or rectal cancer.

Strange losing weight
If someone is losing weight rapidly and strangely in short time, it might signal a grave illness. This is known as unexplained weight loss when you lose 5 % of the total weight in less than 6 months.
