Colorectal Cancer Increase Affecting Young People In Nigeria: NMA

by Anita Ogona

The Nigeria Medical Association says there was an increase in colorectal cancer affecting young people in Nigeria.

President of the association, Dr Francis Faduyile, stated this in Abuja while giving the report of the association’s 59th Annual General Conference and Delegates meeting held in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

Faduyile noted that the cancer was an aggressive type with devastating effect on the health of the nation, while calling on the government to increase its intervention in the fight against cancer in the country.

Colorectal cancer is also known as bowel or colon cancer. It is development of cancer from the colon or parts of the large intestine with symptoms including blood in the stool, change in bowel movements, weight loss, and tiredness.

Although most colorectal cancers are due to old age, NMA is worried that the young population of Nigeria is being affected.

He said, “The conference of this association noted the increase of colorectal cancer in Nigeria with the trend affecting younger age groups. It is more aggressive and with worse outcomes compared to the Caucasian population.

“NMA implores President Muhammadu Buhari to see his re-election as another opportunity to address poor health indices, unacceptable high unemployment rate, hunger and starvation in the country.”

The NMA boss said the association was grateful to the Federal Government for establishing a cancer centre in Lagos. “We commend the Federal Government of Nigeria for establishing a cancer treatment centre at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital for the treatment of cancer cases,”
