Avatar m tn Do you have any family history of colon cancer (e.g., parent, grandparent, sibling)? Otherwise it is extremely rare in a person of your age. Even with a family history, colon cancer is very slow to develop. Speak to your primary care physician about your concerns. Good luck.
Avatar f tn As far as having waited too long, well the earlier you have treatment the better but keep in mind that colon cancer is very responsive to treatment and there is probably a lot they can do for you. Stay positive and work with your doctors and the rest of your medical team. You will be surprised at how many people will jump into this fight with you. Like you I ignored blood for a long time, telling myself it must be hemmorhoids.
Avatar f tn I have GAD and it comes with the obsessive thoughts and all. I have a serious fear of cancer and I often tend to research it many times over. I also have an uncomfortable feeling in my stomach sometimes so I often fear stomach, colon, intestinal cancers. I also just read a go fund me for a 22 year old male that has colon cancer. Like how can they tell us not to worry and that we can't be screened until 60. I'm so scared and I feel like everything related to C is a sign or something.
Avatar n tn Perillyl alcohol is derived from essential oils such as cherry, peppermint, sage, lavender and lemon grass.

974371 tn?1424653129 Have a friend that is about 82. He had surgery fop or colon cancer about two years ago. He has been on some type of Chemo and oral meds since. Was told on one CAT scan, it was stable. Last CAT scan showed rumors had gotten bigger. I don't have many details. The doctor has stopped the Chemo and Cancer meds. Said he discussed it with some board and no other treatment suggested. I find this hard to believe! Can't they do surgery again to remove the rumors?
Avatar f tn It is difficult to comment without examining. Frank blood is usually not a sign of colon cancer. However since you bleed and itch around anus I feel they could be hemorrhoids that have got infected or twisted. These could also be anal skin tags or even warts. “Medical treatment of hemorrhoids is aimed initially at relieving symptoms.
11548417 tn?1506080564 My sister was diagnosed with colon cancer with small metastasis on liver. The colon cancer is surgically removed and the plan was to remove the liver metastasis also surgically. No further treatment would be necessary. To be sure that no other metastases were overseen, a PET scan was done. Besides the liver metastasis, some activity was seen in the breast area. Biopsy revealed breast cancer with a positive lymph node in the armpit.

Avatar m tn Just like any other types of cancer, early detection and treatment is the key. The sooner you detect the cancer cells in the colon is extremely very important to increase the chances of survival. Awareness about the disease and its symptoms is the best way to seek medical attention in a timely manner. The earliest symptoms of colon cancer is not dramatic, it is nothing obvious compared to a heart attack so having enough knowledge about the disease is really important.
Avatar n tn Hello, Unfortunately hair loss is one of the side effects of chemotherapy. Treatment of colon cancer depends on the stage of cancer. Treatments may include: • Surgery (most often a colectomy) to remove cancer cells • Chemotherapy to kill cancer cells • Radiation therapy to destroy cancerous tissue It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn It can be a tricky business removing polyps in the ascending colon. There is no reason to panic. Colon cancer is very slow growing. In my opinion another colonoscopy in three months won't reveal much. Perhaps biopsies can be taken, but that still leaves unanswered questions. The one sure solution is surgery, and I wouldn't settle for anything less than the most experienced specialist in your area.
1440074 tn?1283996071 starting on Sunday, I have been having very severe anal spasms along with a ton of pain, and some itching. It is very hard to sleep at night due to the pain. I have not been constipated, so I don't think it would be hemmorroids. It does not hurt to go to the bathroom either. The pain is pretty constant with spasms very often, and when I have a spasm the pain is so intense that it causes my entire body to tremble. I would describe the pain as almost like a bite near my butthole.

Avatar f tn Do i have colon cancer?? I have mild stomac aches on the right side that occassionally for about like 2 minutes go to the left. but i think its mostly gas because i relieve it. and i have a lot of diarrhea, and occasional blood in stool because i think i have hemorrhoids because i have pain during a bowel movement.
Avatar m tn I heard it was uncommon but the surgeon said sometimes they may be missed the first time around. Do I have higher risks of developing colon cancer? I was told as long as I got checkups and had them removed I would be fine and have the polyps controlled.

Then varied symptoms occur depending on the site. These include change in your bowel habits, including diarrhea or constipation or a change in the consistency of your stool, blood in stool, abdominal pain, unexplained weight loss, feeling that your bowel doesn't empty completely and weakness or fatigue.
447161 tn?1262923084 Surgery is also a possible treatment for colon cancer and this is supposed to be effective as long as the cancer has not spread. I underwent a total colectomy almost five years ago - not for colon cancer - but for torrential diverticular bleeding. I described it to another Medhelp patient who was interested.

Avatar n tn But whatever the doctors who are treating her have staged it at, it is done by the way they have analyzed all the scans and bloodwork, how many lymph nodes are involved, whether the cancer at the naval is from the peritoneum of the abdomen or via another route, whether the colon cancer has broken through the wall of the colon, and so on. Also, these doctors that are working with her will be designing a treatment based on the all those in-depth considerations and resultant staging.
Avatar m tn One survey of adults who had been treated with replacement cadaver GH (which has not been used anywhere in the world since 1985) during childhood showed a mildly increased incidence of colon cancer and prostate cancer, but linkage with the GH treatment was not established.[13] http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar f tn Colon cancer runs in my family, what can I do to try and reduce my risk of getting it?
Avatar f tn My husband has just been diagnosed with Colon cancer on Wednesday, his surgeon wanted to admit him right away but stated he needed more testing before surgery. Is having a chest xray and CT scan normal testing before the surgery or should I prepare for news that the cancer has spread. I need to know because I don't want to be too upset when we meet the surgeon again this Wednesday. Any help I would greatly appreciate. Thank you in advance.
