These days we see many people around us losing their lives due to cancer. How many of us know that in USA this cancer is one major cause for killing many males.

Since many men lose their lives to cancer it is important for them to know about few signs or symptoms of cancer.
Few signs or symptoms of cancer which men must not ignore are
Bowel changes - This is very important indication or sign that men must know. Rare bowel issues need not be considered seriously but when bowel issue happens frequently then men must give it a serious thought. It might be due to colon or rectal cancer in them.
