Colon cancer lump

Common Questions and Answers about Colon cancer lump


Avatar m tn Colon cancer at your age without family history is rare. What you described is consistent with IBS. The mass you felt could be constipated stool. The bleeding likely is from straining and hemorrhoid. The stress from worrying about whether you have colon cancer will in and of itself make IBS symptoms worse. Constipation can cause fatigue.
Avatar n tn 2 weeks ago i found an anal lump, and have noticed other symptoms of colon cancer such as thin stools and i feel like i have to go when i dont actually have to. A week after that(one week ago) i felt very anxious for a few days and then it all built up into a panic attack. Afterwards i had aftershock effects in which i kept having very small and stretched out panic attacks for days(I still have them now).
Avatar n tn Maternal grandmother had colorectal cancer. Had 1 mamogram in 2007, 2008 and in dec 2009 felt a small lump tissue in right breast, doc did ultrasound says thick tissue, normal. No need mammogram as I already had 2. Now still feel lump is there sometimes period bigger then after smaller. Sometimes a bit painful. Am I safe from breast cancer? Please advise whether I need to do a dd&C and hysteroscopy now?
Avatar f tn com/digestive-disorders/ss/slideshow-poop-type-color This slide show goes through a chart of what different types of poop shapes might mean. Narrow or comma shaped bowel movements are something that colon cancer can cause but other issues can as well. Are you over straining for example when trying to go or is your digestive track slow? This is information on colon cancer. Again, speak to your doctor. They may elect to do some testing on you.
Avatar f tn This helped me too! Thanks for the questions AND the responses, as I have "lump a phobia" since breast cancer 7 1/2 years ago! Now the cancer is gone, hopefully forever. I usually find it difficult to describe what I am asking and it takes time to get both ?'s And answers quickly. This took about three minutes. Bless y'all!
Avatar f tn Calling it a benign cyst. I have no family members with breast cancer but have 2 died of lung cancer, 2 of colon cancer, and I believe one with pancreatic cancer. They just want to follow up again in 6 months. I am not one to go for second opinions but am hearing from other family members to be very cautious. What is your opinion. Excuse all my spelling errors please! Thanks. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/260768'>benign cyst</a>.
Avatar f tn Could endometriosis cause lymph nodes to become swollen and therefore make you feel it? The lump is located right where my left ovary is located. Could it be my colon that is swollen (although I'm not feeling constipated and have had normal bowel movements, however painful bowel movements). Is the colon on top of the ovary or is the ovary on top of the colon inside of the female pelvis? Thanks for any answers.
407591 tn?1202337576 It tends to make my left hand get numb and my arm often hurts. My grandfather has colon cancer and my mom had breast cancer. I am 34 yrs old and have not had any trauma or infection of any type. Hate going to doctors but may be necissary at this point. Any advice?
Avatar m tn As you are getting blood on your stool then it clearly shows the symptoms of colon cancer. There are some test you can do at home, such as fecal occult blood tests (FOBTs) and other tests, such as a colonoscopy which can be done in clinic or hospital.
Avatar f tn Hi - I am really sorry that you have received this diagnosis. I suggest that you type in colon cancer to google/yahoo and study some of the postings so that you are in possession of maximum information. I think you should make sure that during your discussion with your surgeon you understand whether oncology will cure the cancer or whether surgery is more effective.
Avatar n tn I'm an 18 year old male. I don't think colon cancer runs in the family. About a year and a half ago I notice bright red blood in the toilet and on the toilet paper after a bowel movement that I had felt slightly constipated during. After that, on and off I noticed blood in my stool. Everntually the bleeding stopped and I also noticed mucus on the toilet paper that smelled foul.
Avatar f tn I have at least 3 movements a day less each time, sometimes feal i have to go then nothing.what could be cause of this?colon cancer?what eles could cause this flatness?
Avatar n tn s when the cancer starts to move- so it might be in the tissues near the breast (for example my grandma had stage 3 colon cancer and the tumor was on part of her bladder and vaginal cavity); and stage 4 which means that metastasized. This means it traveled from where it originated, in my grandmother's case her colon, to another part of the body. So, again- my grandma had tumors all over her liver, intestines, several lyphnodes in her groin area, and on her bladder.
Avatar n tn My mother had breast caner and colon and my sister died of breast at 35 and my grandmother had breast cancer too.Could this be cancer or just a dermatological problem?
Avatar f tn I would image the lump to further evaluate it. An ultrasound and/or CT scan can be considered. This would determine whether it is a skin lesion, or something deeper. After imaging, the decision can be made whether to remove the lump, biopsy it, or simply observe, I would discuss this possibility with your personal physician. This answer is not intended as and does not substitute for medical advice - the information presented is for patients education only.
Avatar m tn I went to some doctors but none gave me a colonoscopy because I am not a candidate for colon cancer. Well, 8 years down the road I was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. I have no family history. So, moral of the story, if you think something is wrong, listen to yourself and go see a doctor.
Avatar f tn Thanks for your quick response! I searched "cording" and it seems it usually has to do with surgery or lymphnode removal, I've had neither, and it doesn't go down my arm, it's from the breast into the armpit. I'm going to try to see my gp next week, but this is a busy month...taking my mom to chemo for colon cancer and my baby girl graduating from college :) thanks for your help. One more question, is there a link between breast cancer and colon cancer?
Avatar f tn I had a colonoscopy yesterday and the doctor wants me to have an ultrasound of vagina and kidneys because she said there was a lump pressing into my colon wall from that region. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I have been having shorter periods, but still regular as far as days apart. I haven't really been having any urinary symptoms that i can pinpoint. I am worried.
Avatar n tn That being said, not all cancers present with obvious symptoms. If caught early enough, colon cancer is very, very treatable.
Avatar m tn I went to the emergency room after a couple days, was admitted to the hospital, and was diagnosed with sigmoiditis with a perforation (lower left colon), which I was told sealed itself off. I went home after a few days and was on Flagyl and Cipro for several more. Now when I eat, even if I feel very hungry at first, I will sometimes become full after eating fairly little. And when I feel too full, I feel horrible and woozy.
317787 tn?1473358451 We just found out that my sister in law also had colon cancer. The two are not related, or that is what the doctor said. She started her chemo for the breast cancer on Friday. They are going to treat her for that for a few months since the breast cancer is aggressive and so large. Then they will stop the treatment in order to deal with the colon cancer and hopefully remove it. I just wanted to update.
18801591 tn?1468167649 but again both my gram-pa and gram-ma and their parents and sister died from cancer breast ovarian stomach colon u name it we have it in the family and i don't want to tell any of my parents my mom had a depression when her father and mother died it would be devastating to her to hear i have any risks so i'm doing this and keeping a low profile and its exhausting.
Avatar n tn I have had a lump which seems to be growing around the left rib cage since last November. I had my latest VP shunt series done and just by chance a black circular thing showed up in the exact same spot where I have the lump and pain. I would like to know if you think this is a bowel thing or a stomach thing. I am aware that it looks like an air pocket, but keep in mind that this lump has been there for 11 months and I have not been constipated or have been "backed up" for 11 months.
Avatar n tn Many people, particularly those in certain industrial occupations (such as firefighters in particular) have a marked incidence of colon cancer well below that age range. It is a colossal mistake for anyone to assume that simply being under 50 is some kind of guarantee.
Avatar f tn Reading your story it seems to me that these issues arise after you stop eating fibre. It ends up with you having rock hard stools and some constipation. I don't believe that tumours can come and go like your lump does so it doesn't sound like cancer based on your description, but I'm not a doctor. You may have caused an anal fissure or small tear, these can be painful and can take some time to heal. The key is to keep that stool soft so the tissue can repair itself over time.
1353681 tn?1387083733 Having close family members who have had uterine, colon, or ovarian cancer is also important. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I put it down to hemorrhoids or an anal fissure in the hope it would go away but I think over the last few years it has worsened. This obviously sent alarm bells ringing in relation to colon cancer, mainly because my symptoms seem similar for that illness. I have the blood in the stool, irregular bowl movements, constipation regularly, tiredness.
