Common Questions and Answers about Colon cancer no symptoms


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 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 m tn After 3 months I had a severe diarhea and convinced myself that i had colon cancer. 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 I had surgery in Feb. 2011 for colon tumer and after biopsy 2nd.stage cancer was detected. Then I had gone trough chemotherapy os six cycle of Folfox 4. After completion of chemotherapy during check up a polyp (2mm) was found in colon. After six months PET scan has been done and no metastat was found. My age is 61 year. I go for walking daily morning for 40 minutes and also busy in my job. My weight is constant. I have no major problem.
Avatar m tn 2) Are my symptoms suggestive of colon cancer (though I am only 36, I was a heavy drinker in the past, a risk factor for colon cancer)? 3) Since my stools are occasionally of normal shape and size, would this mean that when they are pencil shaped that it's caused by something other than an obstruction, such as straining? 4) What tests - if any - should I have performed?
Avatar m tn I wouldnt worry about colon cancer. From what you are saying it doesnt seem likely. My initial thought is that you have developed a food allergy. I suggest going to an allergy specialist and have them run a test. Until then, try keeping a food journal of everything you eat and drink, as well as how you feel and bowel movements. See if you notice feeling bad after you eat certain types of foods.
Avatar n tn Does these tests at least rule out advanced colon cancer? Would these tests have shown colon cancer or at least something to some extent to warrant further testing? 8. does the symptoms point to colon cancer? With the blood now gone. 9. I feel like there is something just inside my rectum, is that a sign of colon cancer or possibly a internal hemmorroids? 10. How common is colon cancer/rectal cancer in someone my age without the family history?
Avatar m tn t go away so he went for a colon test and it came back that he had sigmo colon cancer and had a colon resection on 12/26/07 and now is going through CHIMO I have taken him to a cancer hospital in new york and they said the same they said here in Illinois.
Avatar n tn Can you describe the pain you feel? Abdominal pain is rare in colon cancer. Cancer of the colon and rectum can exhibit itself in several ways such as: bleeding from your rectum or blood mixed with your stool; fatigue and pale skin; abdominal distension; abdominal pain; persistent nausea or vomiting; unexplained weight loss; change in frequency or character of stool; sensation of incomplete evacuation after a bowel movement or rectal pain. The duration of symptoms usually takes 14 weeks.
Avatar f tn I'm no expert, just family who have experienced colon cancer. Most of the time, you'll get unusual digestive symptoms and often blood if there's colon cancer. Your husband didn't have blood in his stool samples, so that's good, and he hasn't experienced digestive problems, so that's also good. The whole idea is to catch colon cancer early, better prognosis, and that's why they push these colonoscopies.
Avatar f tn Hi Mitch, You have nearly the EXACT same symptoms as I have been having the past 6 months, I am 21, so not much older really: Feeling tired or dizzy quite a lot RARELY have I bled or leaked Mucux (maybe 6 times in a year) Stomach is always having some trouble Pains in abdominals Thing is when you type these symptoms into google you automatically get 'Colon Cancer' and freak out...
Avatar n tn Hello~It certainly doesn't seem like you have cancer at all, my dear husband had colon cancer and his symptoms were entirely different from yours. One thing, for your own peace of mind, I would demand a colonoscopy, it is your body, you are paying for it, so you deserve it for your own peace. That way, when it comes back normal, and I know it will, you won't be so worried.
Avatar m tn Thank you so much! just one more question, does that mean that even if one has colon cancer, can metamucil stop the narrow stool symptoms or if u have the cancer it doesnt matter you'll get narrow stool no mattter what.
Avatar m tn Hello, At your age, chances of colon cancer are very less. Many people with colon cancer experience no symptoms in the early stages of the disease. 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.
Avatar f tn Or descending? And I have noticed a trend that people with stage 4 colon cancer and no symptoms tend to have cancer in the ascending region.(Due to it being big enough for a tumor to grow with little to no symptoms.) Is this where your friends colon cancer was? Such an odd disease colon cancer is. I imagine it is tough as someone who studies this disease to find some type of predictability in it.
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.
Avatar n tn Sometimes early colon cancer may have no symptoms and some symptoms of later colon cancer can also occur in people with less serious medical problems, such as hemorrhoids (piles). Already you have a colon cancer history in your family, it’s always recommended to get check up by a doctor if you have experienced any of the symptoms above; these types of symptoms always need to be investigated further. Good Luck.
Avatar n tn I could answer this question, but I don't want to scare you. The problem is, the common signs of cancer (colon) are very common symptoms that many people experience. These signs are over 90% of the time, not cancer. If someone has blood in their stool, they probably don't have cancer. If someone is constipated, they probably don't have cancer. So if you read on the internet and see that you have the signs of cancer, testing should be done, but you probably don't have cancer.
Avatar f tn He went to the hospital and was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer with the primary tumor in the hepatic flexure (where colon lies close to the liver). He died in 8/2009. He previously had no symptoms of colon cancer ie: blood in stool, weight loss, nausea,vomiting. So obviously his cancer was missed or it grew from a polyp to stage 4 cancer within this 3.5 years.
