446049 tn?1632493397 It is in my lower back (minor pain) and my middle to upper and right side of back. Chiropractor seems to think joints along thoracic spine and arthritis. On a side note - I was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2008 and had surgery and six months of chemotherapy (during this time, not much back pain). It's been 1 year since chemo ended and back pain is worse then ever. Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

Avatar f tn I am a hypocondriac, and maybe i was thinking all the stress and worry is what is causing this, but i have never been in this ache and pain before. I have read, IBS, Chrons Diesease, Colon and Ovarian Cancer and everything else. Alot of people tell me, it could be hemorroids or lack of fiber. I dont know, but im worrying myself sick. If you have any idea or any clue what it might be, i would appreciaite it.
Avatar n tn I've been having pain and discomfort in my lower right abdomen and colon area. There has been some feeling of pressure and some sharp pain as well as some dull and a few times prickly pain. It is increased when I have gas bubbles passing through that area. I'll get the pain and then alittle while later, I emit the gas bubble externally. The other times I get the pain is when I'm stressed, believe it or not.
Avatar f tn m 29 and was having all the symptoms of colon cancer- I had a colonoscopy back in July and thankfully, everything was clear and it was due to stress of being out of work. The test is easy and you don't feel a thing- the only hard part is the prep but it's a fair trade for peace of mind. Keep us updated and I pray you feel better soon!

Avatar m tn I am 45 year old male with constipation and mild right side abdominal pain, i also have experieinced pretty significant lower right side back pain but recently have moved so i do not know if the back pain and constipation are related. I had a colonoscopy 2 years ago after a postive FOB test and only one small polyp was found that was benign. My appetite is good and other than the change in boewl habits during the last few weeks i have no other symptoms that could be considered colon cancer like.
1624243 tn?1299193152 Im 28 yrs old male, for the past 3 months i have had lower left abdominal cramps, no blood in my stool just soft stools i also have pain in my lower back, i have had a xray done, ct scan done and blood work and everything comes back negative... please help what could this be?
Avatar n tn For the past few weeks i have been having lower abdominal pain, constipation, tenesmus, gas pain, loose stools, and acid reflux. My doctor sent me to have a blood test and the results have not come back, but im still concerned that it could be Colon Cancer. I'm afraid that it could be cancer, and i honestly hope that the blood test come back as positive for Inflammatory Bowel, rather than having cancer...please help?
Avatar f tn But there was still enough blood in the toilet that it colored the water red, and it was VERY brightly colored, almost pink, with clots. Afterward, now I am feeling some lower pain in my back. However, there was no pain when I passed the bloody stool. Again, there was a LOT of blood in the toilet. I am starting to really worry about rectal cancer. Can anyone tell me what it might be?
Avatar n tn If I just had the simoidoscopy a year ago could it be colon cancer that is causing alot of pain in my lower side? Are these tests good for finding colon cancer in the sigmoid and descending colon? The reason I havnt had a colonoscopy is because I cannot have sedatives. Is there a chance that colon cancer comes that quickly after the Flex-sig? I am really scared. I thought I saw blood in the toilet. I am so afraid. Is colon cancer diagnosed alot around my age?
Avatar m tn No one in my family has had colon cancer. Three months ago I was diagnosed with mono, which really brought down my whole immune system. I then had walking pneumonia. I had sinus infections in between too, which caused me to take many antibiotics. I have a severely sensitive stomach and the antibiotics ruined my stomach. Ever since than, I have been very nauseous, no energy at all, loss of appetite, and some pain in my left lower abdomen.
Avatar f tn 2nd aunt had cancer of the vulvar and colon cancer 2 years later; 3rd aunt with breast ovarian and cancer of the colon. both aunts have colostomies. My father died at the age of 41 from lung cancer. Should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn I'm so freaking out... I had gone to my doc 3 weeks ago due to lower left adbominal pain. I also have constipation on and off - I use metamucil. He recommended for me to take docusate sodium stool softener. However, the pain is still there and it's actually getting somewhat worse. Now it feels like I'm being poked w/ a sharp object. No blood, no puss in my poop - so at least that's a good sign. It's worse when I lean forward.
Avatar f tn s pelvis from the front, I know that both the left ovary and sigmoid colon is located in the lower left quadrant. My question is, is the left ovary located in the front, with the sigmoid colon running behind it, or is the left ovary and sigmoid colon side by side or is the left ovary located behind the sigmoid colon?
Avatar n tn I am 25 one year ago my back went out.. I pulled it and caused a dislocated disk last year because i I used to work at a lumber yard.. Ive been going to doctors every now and then and ive been having financial issues and transportation issues so: Getting to my appointmets was hard enough- So this was slow progressing on finding out whats going on. I have severe lower back pain, chronic constipation, blockageing..
Avatar f tn Kidney disorders too produce colicky and sharp pain. Sometimes anxiety with flatulence can cause this pain. If the pain persists, you will need to consult your primary care physician for proper evaluation of pain and therapy. Regards.
Avatar f tn http://www.webmd.com/colorectal-cancer/news/20080712/tony-snow-dies-colon-cancer Important: COFFEE TO PREVENT COLON CANCER- 4 to 6 cups a day to live LONGER! Capsaicin KILLS IS PROVEN TO KILL prostate cancer so I figure it can do a number on colon cancer! Papaya enzyme or Bromelain effective with IBD are great for IBD-google. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn I have been suffering with extreme lower back pain, stomach pain, constipation, diareaha, and most recently blood and mucous in the stool. I had a colonoscopy in 2006 and was told that I have severe hemmroids. Two weeks ago, I could not use the bathroom without a laxative and when I was able to use it, I felt as if I had not finished a bowel movement. It feels like something is blocking the rectum. I am scheduled for a colonoscopy next month.
717581 tn?1230070230 I note that you are 16 years old and the chances of developing colon cancer at this young age are probably one in a million - or one in a squillion!! However, rectal/anal bleeding is never normal and medical advice should always be sought. Do consult a doctor and obtain a definite diagnosis.
Avatar f tn I have for most of adult life suffered from hard stool and I have a chronic fissure as a result that comes and goes from time to time. I have also experienced occasional pain in my lower to mid right abdomen that can last a whole day and be gone the next. Now for the past two weeks I have been having a change in bowel movements to looser stools and mild cramps. There are also pains on my right that are localized and come and go. Not sharp but feel like something is in there.
