Therefore, it is very important to consult a specialist to calculate individual risks and draw up a health plan even before symptoms appear. Be healthy.
Unfortunately, in most cases, bowel cancer does not manifest itself in the early stages of the disease and can only be detected using instrumental and laboratory diagnostic methods.
