Avatar n tn The original testing indicated iron deficiency anemia. The doctors all suspected colon cancer was the cause (wrong--I've now seen the inside of my colon). I eat a lot of iron rich foods. I eat a lot of citrus. Vitamin A/Bata carotene—something to inquire about. I don't eat a lot phytic acid sources. They did the thyroid function tests.
Avatar f tn Hi there, My husband, age 57 and in otherwise great health, was diagnosed and had surgery for colon cancer. The diagnosis was stage IV colon cancer, as the mucinous carcinoid tumor had spread to his retroperitoneum. The prognosis is not good (ie., the doctors said that without doubt, this is a terminal disease with survival marked at 3-6 months). But I have been reading of survivors - some living beyond the magic five year milestone! What is the exact prognosis of this?
Avatar n tn What did the sigmoidoscopy and CT prove negative for? Were they looking for cancer? First off, be thankful they didn't find it. Hyperthyroidism, among other things, can cause diarrhea. A lot of things can cause the lower abdominal pain, including urinary retention, kidney stones, and more. Have you had any thyroid tests done to see what your levels are?
Avatar f tn Please post the reference ranges for the T3 and Free T4. Ranges vary lab to lab and have to come from your own report. Also, your doctor ordered Total T3, which is considered obsolete and of little value. You should try to get Free T3, which is the hormone actually used by individual cells. According to ranges we, typically, see for FT4, your level is very low in the range. Your vitamin D is too low. What symptoms are you having?
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with stage II colon cancer in 2006. The tumour was quite large measuring 7cmx8cm. T3 NO MO. I had no chemo because the doctor felt it would not significantly raise my survival rate which was 85%. For the last few months or so, I have been bloated and have rt upper abdominal pain. At times it feels like there is something in there when I am sitting and can be uncomfortable. My colonoscopy in sept. was clear. I recently had a ct scan and will get my results soon.

Avatar f tn does coughing and wheezing more {as asmatic anyway} have any bearings on 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 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 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 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 I took her to the doctor, but they are referring her to a specialist for a CT scan and a colonoscopy. Does this sound like colon cancer? If so, what should I expect? Is there anything else that it could be? I'm really worried about her.
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 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 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 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?
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 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.
