The Gastrointestinal (GI) tract is comprised of the upper part and a lower part. The upper part is comprised of mouth, esophagus and stomach along with other organs for digestion, such as liver, gallbladder, pancreas. The lower part consists most of the small intestine, large intestine, rectum and anus. While the upper GI tract is involved in indigestion and semi- digestion of the food, the lower GI tract helps to digest the food completely, absorb the nutrients from the same and remove the waste from the body.
There can be a number of diseases affecting this lower part. Some diseases are not so severe and can be easily treated while some are quite threatening and requires early screening along with extensive treatment to manage it.
The symptoms of colorectal diseases are very trivial, such as weakness, weight loss, occasional bleeding with stool etc. and many times people often ignores these symptoms which result in delay in diagnosis and treatment. These diseases may arise due to heredity, sedentary lifestyle and some underlying disease, but many a time, it can happen with no prior risk factors as well. Many of these colorectal diseases, if diagnosed and treated at an early stage, can be completely cured.
