    It is sad, so dad for him, this could have been prevented if he had gone for a colonoscopy, and the signs are always there, most especially for anyone over 50. The problem we have back home is that, most Nigerians do not get a yearly physical, until it is too late. We hear of people getting cancer and dying afterwards, because they ignored the symptoms or are misdiagnosed. When one turns 50, even though you feel fine, get your parents to go for tests, to determine if all is well. Cancer is like a plant it takes time to grow. He must have had symptoms like indigestion, constipation and difficulty in going to the bathroom. Inthe US, when you turn 50, healthy or not, you go for a colonoscopy, when the scope is put thru the anus to search for polyps, which actually turn to cancer after a while if not removed. Colon cancer can be prevented. Colon cancer is cancer of the large intestine, the lower part of your digestive system. Rectal cancer is cancer of the last several inches of the colon. Together, they’re often referred to as colorectal cancers.
    Most cases of colon cancer begin as small, non-cancerous (benign) clumps of cells and can be removed. Over time some of these polyps become colon cancers. to know when you migt be having the sysmptoms, they can be a change in your bowel habits, including diarrhea or constipation or a change in the consistency of your stool,rectal bleeding or blood in your stool, persistent cramps, gas or pain.
    It is advisable to get our parents screened for this, because when it gets to a certain stage. The great majority of people diagnosed with colon cancer are older than 50. Colon cancer can occur in younger people, but it occurs much less frequently. It is very serious because black people have a greater risk of colon cancer than do people of other races and irriversible, when it affects most of the intestine.

    Nigeria needs to have medical access for all Nigerians and have specialty clinics for most people at affordable prices. Tons of people have cancer here in the US and they get treated, because they catch it early, by going yearly for tests and screening.
    I personally just finished my nursing education and plan to go home yearly to teach nurses and hospital aids in my village of Asaba on what i have learned and help out in procedures, all for free, because someone has to do it, if the government cares for its people, it will make them the priority.

    Rest in peace.

    He didn’t die of Colon cancer. Yes he was diagnosed of Prostate cancer but it didn’t develop to a stage where any form of cancer killed him. My father died a natural death. He was healthy but his time had come as willed by God. Its as simple as that. Please lets put the record straight!
