Question description

Your patient states that he has seen a steady increase of rectal bleeding and has had a consistent feeling of abdominal fullness recently. What are three questions about his history would you want to note before moving any further to rule out colorectal cancer?
  • After discussing the patient’s health history (question 1), what is your next step in determining whether this patient is experiencing colorectal cancer as opposed to irregular bowel patterns?
