Carcinoma right colon

Carcinoma of the right colon is not clinically apparent to the physician as that of the carcinoma of left colon as the symptoms the patient presents with maybe as vague as pallor,tiredness and lethargy with dull abdominal pain which are all due to occult blood loss which occurs due to the growing tumour within.Evidence of low blood counts in an elderly patient with mild symptoms must not be overlooked as more cases of carcinoma right colon are emerging in the western world than in comparison to the carcinoma left colon which is more easier to diagnose.
