Common Questions and Answers about Colon cancer month


Avatar n tn I have been reading for colon cancer symptoms and I am thinking that the melanoma has spread. However I have not lost any weight, do not feel nauseaous, have not vomited, do not feel weak, my apetite is the same as before and I have another symptom that I haven't seen listed for colon cancer. I feel like if I had something inside my stomach(like water) and if I move I feel it move too. Does anyone know what this might be?

My doctor sent me for CBC, occult blood test, liver enzimes, ESR, tumor marker, ultrasound and finally a CT scan with oral contrast,Nothing was found, He told me i have IBS. The issue its that my abdominal pain continues and i tend to develop very loose stools.
Avatar m tn My husband's 1st wife had colon cancer. It was discovered too late, & she passed away at the age of 24 saddly. Your symptoms don't sound like what my husband told me she had. She started having symptoms in her late teens... chronic constipation, stomach pain, etc. One day while she was away at college, she started throwing up really hard & thought she had a virus. She was staying really tired & just couldn't shake it.
Avatar n tn My mother has stage 4 colon cancer, and has been monitoring her CEA count through blood work. Is this CEA count also a way of checking for any cancer throughout the body, because it would make me feel a lot better to get a blood test and know that I am clean.

Avatar f tn I am awaiting my colonoscopy but am freaking out because I still have a week and a half until that. I do have a family history of colon cancer including my great grandma, two great aunts, my dads cousin, and my aunt who passed away at age 37 of colon cancer. I already had a fecal occult blood test done and it came back positive. I am curious to what others think??

Avatar f tn You see the Dr and explain symptoms to him it could be any thing,,, the only way to determine if it is colon cancer is to have a colonostomy... that will determine if you have colon cancer.
Avatar f tn Colon cancer can be extremely hereditary! My mother-in-law has 4th stage colon cancer and it was recommended to my husband and his sister to have a colonoscopy at 40 years old. He did and they found 1 small (3mm) sized tumor that was found to be pre-cancerous. His sister's result was clear. So, that's 50% chance right there. I agree with quinroxanne, be very vigilant! Good luck.
Avatar n tn Sorry -- my follow-up question apparently got cut off.... I'm just wondering if there could be a connection between the Gastritis I experiened last month and any potential colon blockage/cancer. I can't seem to find much written about this, but I'm wondering if a blockage from colon cancer could "back up" my system and produce gastrits. Is this even possible? (It's the theory I've developed as I worry about having colon cancer.

Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with colon cancer 8 years ago and they removed 19 inches of my colon at that time. Now, I had a PET scan done a few weeks ago and a spot (size of a lima) bean was found. I was sent to an orthopaedic doctor and he has discussed the scans with 4 radiologist and they will not commit 100% it is not cancer. So, now they ahve requested a CT/biopsy after a consultation with an Interventional radiologist next week. Do you feel this could be cancer?
Avatar f tn When you see the doctor, they can then determine if you warrant further evaluation for colon cancer. While you have some of the symptoms, they are not unique to colon cancer. You have no blood in your stool, correct? Here is information on colon cancer to review But am more inclined to think that your issues are in relation to your trip. Let us know what the doctors say.

Avatar n tn I have been told that this is more likely a Colon obstruction (cancer) and as I am new to the Celiac diagnosis I am curious as to whether anyone has had this symptom from Celiac. I have looked everywhere on line and evry time it goes back to colon cancer, never Celiac. My GI claims it is the Celiac but will do a colonoscopy in 6 months if it does not change with a gluten free diet (which it has not so far).
Avatar f tn A few days ago I had some blood on the toilet paper and a little in the toilet. I’m 37 and no family history of colon cancer. I can’t see a doctor until the 29th of this month and I’m terrified it’s colon cancer. No health insurance so when the doctor does order tests it may be awhile before I can get them because of our financial situation. Anybody else ever had something like this?
