¿Qué es el cáncer colorrectal? - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: El cáncer en el intestino grueso se llama cáncer colorrectal. Las partes del intestino grueso son el colon, el recto y el canal anal. La mayoría de los casos de cáncer colorrectal comienza en el colón en pequeños grupos de células, llamados pólipos. La mayoría de los pólipos son benignos, lo que significa que contienen células anormales que no son cancerosas y no se diseminarán al resto del cuerpo. Solo están presentes en la delgada capa de tejido que recubre el interior del intestino. Si las células anormales se convierten en células cancerosas, el pólipo puede agrandarse e invadir más profundamente la pared del intestino grueso. Si no se trata, las células cancerosas pueden ingresar al torrente sanguíneo y diseminarse a los ganglios linfáticos cercanos. Con el tiempo, estas células pueden llegar a otros órganos y formar más tumores. Existe mayor riesgo de contraer cáncer colorrectal si: tiene antecedentes familiares de cáncer colorrectal, tiene pólipos de colon, tiene 50 años o más, es obeso, fuma cigarrillos, no realiza actividad física, bebe demasiado alcohol, o tiene una enfermedad que inflama el colon, como colitis ulcerosa o enfermedad de Crohn. Los síntomas del cáncer colorrectal pueden incluir: un cambio en los hábitos intestinales, como diarrea, estreñimiento o heces más delgadas de lo normal, sangre roja u oscura brillante en las heces, sentirse incapaz de vaciar el intestino, dolor de vientre, hinchazón o calambres, pérdida de peso sin motivo, sentirse débil o muy cansado y vómitos. Es importante saber que estos síntomas pueden ser causados por afecciones distintas al cáncer de colon, y es posible tener cáncer colorrectal sin presentar ningún síntoma, especialmente en las primeras etapas. Si tiene preguntas sobre el cáncer colorrectal, hable con su proveedor de atención médica.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"Medical Legal Art has always performed quality and efficient work. The doctors that review the exhibits are always amazed at the precise descriptions and drawings."

"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."
