Abstract
Introduction: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide and the fourth most common cause of cancer-related death. Patients complications, diet and other lifestyle factors have a significant influence on developing colon cancer. The aim of this work was to study the clinical characteristics and nutritional status of patients with colorectal cancer.
Methods: This cross sectional study was conducted with colorectal cancer patients in oncology unit at Benghazi medical center on 88 patients in which 28 male and 50 female. The data collected through modified self-administrated questionnaire. Data was analyzed by either frequencies or by suing Chi-square for significant differences.
Results and Discussion: The study enrolled 88 oncology patients. The mean age was 52.6 ± 10.6 years. Eighty eight, out of (56.8%) of the patients were female. The most common ages affected significantly by cancer was those between 41-60 years old (P< 0.05). There were abnormal levels of hemoglobin, red blood cells, serum potassium and serum sodium and carcino embryionic antigen have been identified. Asthma was the most chronic disease reported (P=0.000). Furthermore, The most common risk factors contributed to colorectal cancer found obesity (P=0.000). In addition, there also found that patients experiences severe pains as first sign of cancer developed, constipation, loss appetite, lose weight, nausea and vomiting (P< 0.05). The two methods of cancer treatment significant found were Surgical remove of colorectal cancer (P =0.000) and chemotherapy (P=0.000). High body mass index was determined and high risk for body fat distribution has been found by WHtR (P< 0.05). history of food intake was highly reported through largely consumed all food stuffs and food groups (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: There were a numbers of factors implicated in CRC include high WHtR, obesity abnormal levels of biochemical tests and patients participate in government jobs. Taken together, patients with colorectal cancer need routine monitoring to reduced cancer severity, progresses and for maintain their quality of life.
