Avatar n tn I have severe pain in the latter section of the transverse colon and the decending colon. Could the yellow stool be caused by the lack of bile salts? If so does that mean my liver is impaired? I did not have a liver test, should I? Or are these symptoms of another problem?

Avatar n tn Also, Malabsorption is another reason for the stool staying yellow. With Melabsorption, the stool will be fatty becuase the colon is not taking the nutrients (fat, carbohydrate, and protein)that is needed from it. Therefore, causing the stool to be fatty and sink to the bottom, or in most cases floot to the top. With regards to the thinning of the stools, this can be cause by any number of things. First, IBS is a big cause of this.

I weighted 172 lbs at that time. Now I weight 119 lbs and I am very very skinny. I am 5 ft. 9 inches tall, so I looked much better at 172 lbs then I do now.
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 The doc said my chance of having colon cancer is like .0001% since I am only 27 with no family history. still i am worried. Since I am worried my stools still look all thin. I feel since I am anxious and puts a lot of pressure on my stools size and color.. it may remain the same. As of now, I am on a medication. Doc said try this for 2 weeks and then decide if I need a colonoscopy or not. I just need some comforting words. that I do not have colon cancer. I don't feel anything.
Avatar n tn I have no history of colon cancer in my family, though I had a benign polyp removed about 4 yrs ago. I am diagnosed with IBS. I have no weight loss (other way around) but have been very stressed past couple of years. My toilet habits have not changed, I have had no fever. My stool looks normal shape and color (other than mucus and blood). I ma due for an endoscopy and colonscopy soon. But I want to know; is this most likely cancer?
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 I've had continual discolored stool (yellow, green, orange, black) for years along with daily movements anywhere from 3-6 times. This has been quite "regular" for me but when asking doctors about this they say it is normal or disregard my concerns. However, I do not feel that it is "normal".

4644823 tn?1357715733 Age 21 is far too early ro develop colon cancer. However, there is perhaps a slight exception to this viewpoint - and that applies if you have a family history of colon cancer. There are those who say that you should undergo a colonoscopy perhaps in the 20's if you have such a family history of colon cancer.
Avatar m tn I told my father and he thinks I might have giardia, but my family has had many members die of colon cancer (at young age 24-55). I just want relieve myself of this dead weight in my abdomen and feel normal again.. Can anyone help, or any ideas of what I'm experiencing?
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.
504535 tn?1210527032 ve got from thinking I had heart disease to HIV to Lung Cancer to Brain Tumors, to Liver Cancer to Colon Cancer to Parasites and Bacterial Infections to Liver Cancer again. What if this one is right? I hate this so much because it stresses me so much and makes it hard to sleep at night. Can smoke cause the stool to turn grey? It's been really smokey where I live (Sacramento) due to multiple fires up North, we're completely covered in smoke and it's been like this for weeks.
Avatar m tn My father has colon cancer that has metastisized to his liver. He has had his liver resected but the cancer has returned in his liver. He started turning yellow including his eyes. We finally talked him going to the doctor. They put a drain in his liver because of an obtruction. While in the hospital his kidney's started to fail, his temp dropped down to 95, his blood pressure was low and he started retaining fluid. He was in the hosp for 2 weeks now he is home doing some better.
Avatar n tn Is loose stool a symptom of colon cancer because my doctor says it is constipation that can signal colon cancer.
Avatar f tn Polyps are growths on the inside of the colon that are believed to be the precursors to colon cancer. Blood that may be from polyps or colon cancer is not always visible in or on the stool. This type of blood is called "occult blood," and can be identified with a simple test. The fecal occult blood test may be done as part of a screening panel for colon cancer. IBD and diverticular disease are also sources of bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract.
Avatar m tn Colon cancer at your age without family history is rare. What you described is consistent with IBS. The mass you felt could be constipated stool. The bleeding likely is from straining and hemorrhoid. The stress from worrying about whether you have colon cancer will in and of itself make IBS symptoms worse. Constipation can cause fatigue.
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 m tn Today stool appeared brown but wipe yellow. I used a flashlight and saw a yellow hue on the stool. I took a sample out of the water and again examined but appeared brown only...very foul smelling.
