Avatar f tn My husband was diagnosed with colon cancer in Dec 2010. They removed 4 inches of his colon followed by 6 months (50 hours every other wee) of chemo. No catscans were done to check any other organs at the completetion of this. In April of this year, his blood work came back (bad) is what they called it. They gave him a colonoscopy which came back non cancerous, however, the surgeon wanted to be sure and did another, again coming back clean.

Avatar f tn I am a 26 year old female. In 2010 I had a abnormal pap and my gyno at the time told me to stop having sex unprotected and that I should prob get the HPV vaccine and nothing else. I am assuming at the time if she did think I had HPV she assumed it would just go away on its own. I didn’t think too much of it and I never got the vaccine. This year I got a pap for the first time since then and it was abnormal once again.
Avatar m tn Get to a rectal/colon specialist. I am a 3 yr survivor of anal cancer. Lots of growths or whatever can show up in anal area. Probably nothing to fear. But you won't know until a doctor examines you. I suggest a specialist as they have the equipment necessary to do a thorough exam. As well as experience. My cancer was not found by gasto in routine colonoscopy. It was a self referral to surgeon that uncovered the cancer and saved my life.
Avatar n tn s health related issue (such as endometriosis or a kind of reproductive cancer) or if I have colon cancer. I am really scared because, if this is colon cancer, I have let it get way out of hand and it is probably past an untreatable stage. Can someone give me advice on what to do next?
1316708 tn?1310916182 Thank you so much for writing. I am so sorry that you've had to go thru all of this and are a stage 4. I just can't believe you've been on interferon for so long. Do you have any family history of skin cancer? We had ruled out interferon and now we are considering radiation but most doctors are saying to go with mohs. Tomorrow we go to yet another doctor, he's a mohs, then we're going to another plastic surgeon.

107366 tn?1305680375 I am an ovarian cancer patient, and am very careful to screen yearly for colon/anal cancer with a colonoscopy. I'm not sure of the familial relationship ovarian and anal cancers may have, but is there something else I should be doing to screen?

Avatar n tn a new study shows that eating three servings of fish per week appears to cut the risk of developing colon polyps that could lead to cancer.

All of those surveyed also had colonoscopies.

The following week at the Sept 14th National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) meeting Dr. McCormick, pronounced, once again, that there were no adverse events in pregnant women - despite having been informed on two previous occasions of the VAERS data.
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 f tn Everything is linked to something now...it's like you have to choose what type of cancer to get...eat this and it causes A cancer. Don't eat it and you are at a higher risk for B cancer....sigh.

Avatar m tn I've been taking 20mg Opana & 15mg Roxycodone for 4 yrs. 3 ops & 5 rox a day. For 4 yrs. straight. I now have a job that I don't hurt at the end of my day nor during & I've come to realize these things have stopped working a long time ago & I'm taking them now just to keep the wolf away from the door. I went cold turkey last time I was hospitalized in 2010 for colon & kidney 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.
