When the body sends out suspicious signals, don’t ignore them. These can be harmless problems, but they can also be warning signs of serious illness. In particular, this is why special care must be taken when going to the bathroom.
Pay attention to the color of feces and urine because it could be the sign of silent and lethal tumors
Tumors sometimes manifest themselves with completely unsuspected symptoms. For example, there is a problem that almost everyone overlooks, but it can be the antechamber of colon or ovarian cancer. Even a pain that many mistake for a muscle problem can actually hide lung cancer.
Grasping these signals is important for diagnosing diseases in time and being more likely to recover. So pay attention to the color of feces and urine because it could be the indicator of silent and lethal tumors
In particular, if there are traces of blood in the urine, the problem could be kidney cancer. Dark-colored urine, on the other hand, is one of the symptoms of liver cancer.
As for the stool, the red color can indicate traces of blood that could be caused by colon cancer.
Most importantly, changes in the color of stool and urine could indicate cholangiocarcinoma, which is a cancer of the biliary tract. The latter are a collection of ducts that carry the bile produced by the liver cells.
Cholangiocarcinoma is a particularly subtle disease: it is in fact very rare, therefore difficult to recognize. Unfortunately, it is one of the cancers for which the treatments are less effective. Another problem that slows diagnosis is the fact that symptoms are often ignored.
Be careful, therefore, if the stools become slightly lighter than usual, and the urine darker: this could be signs of cholangiocarcinoma. An additional symptom is the yellowish color in the whites of the eye and skin, as experts explain.
Who is most at risk of getting cholangiocarcinoma
Unfortunately, biliary tract cancer is poorly understood. But scientists have identified some probable risk factors. People who have suffered from:
- stones in the gallbladder;
- stones in the bile ducts;
- primary sclerosing cholangitis;
- cyst of the choledochus.
Experts are still not sure whether the chances of getting sick rise due to:
- metabolic syndrome;
- hepatitis B and C;
Avoiding cigarettes and following a healthy diet are still valid advice to prevent various cancers.
In any case, it is important that everyone pays attention to any suspicious symptoms, such as changes in the color of stool and urine. The advice is always to talk to your doctor, so that he can prescribe the necessary tests to understand the origin of the problem.
