Avatar f tn does coughing and wheezing more {as asmatic anyway} have any bearings on colon cancer
1280322 tn?1302780827 It could just be inflammation of the bowel. Could be chrons disease. Bowel, colon cancer is more a lumpy tissue mass that can be seen with the colonoscopy or sigomidscope, both are the same procedure. Colon cancer is started from polyp's that grow in the bowel and can develop into cancer if left untreated. I am sure its nothing for you to worry about. They will have taken a biopsy of surrounding tissue whilst doing the colonoscopy to rule out bowel cancer.
Avatar f tn You are right to seek a consultation with your doctor since rectal bleeding is never normal.. At 22 years old it is very unlikely that you have colon cancer since this usually occurs at age 40+. Unless your doctor can 100% reassure you that the cause of the bleeding is one of the more minor reasons (eg anal fissure, haemorrhoids etc) I suggest that you ask for a colonoscopy as the test that should provide the maximum reassurance.

Its sad i get nervous everytime I have to go to bathroom, because I just know the blood is goin to be there. Its covered, even with just a small bowel movement.

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.
415617 tn?1202668447 Well the blood in stool and history of bowel cancer needs to be checked out; get scoped. One thing it could be is Celiac's Disease, an allergy/intolerance to gluten. It is not checked in normal allergy testing (it is an autoimmune response, not really an allergy). But just google celiac's and you can see the symptoms; your symptoms are very similar. If you are going to get scoped you could have them biopsy while they are "up there".
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 was diagnosed with GERD about one year ago and had it for maybe a year before that. In this entire time I basically ignored it and drank alot of Milk and took Tums as needed. I now realize the mistake I've made may have caused me Cancer. I'm only 23 years old but have what feels to be a lump inside my throat (have had the lump for maybe 2 years) on my right hand side which is a symptom of Larynx Cancer. Although I have no others especially the main one Hoarseness in the voice.
1092854 tn?1292620351 Can untreated or not diagnosed Crohn's lead to colon cancer????? I go 12/14 for colonoscopy to see if i have crohn's, but been having pain and prob for close to 9 yrs. Im worried that all these yrs may have caused cancer or lots of damage. please someone help very scared.
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 m tn my husband has colon cancer and first pet scan came back 3.9 had it 2yrs before first visit to doctors how bad is 3.
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 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.
