colon cancer symptoms?

A: no one seemed to really answer your question. symptoms of cancer depend on the duration in between. if he has bad symptoms one week, the next week has no symptoms and the week after they come back then no it''s most definitely not cancer. it doesn''t work like that. the symptoms are usually pretty gradual, are fairly constant and get worse over time. 22 is too young for colon cancer unless he''s a freak case. it''s NOT colon cancer.. period!

colon cancer symptoms and Diagnostic Protocol

A: symptoms of colon cancer depend upon a tumor’s localization. Tumors localized on the right side of the colon (colon ascendens) usually manifest symptoms after the disease has already spread throughout the body and include: weight loss, and general bad health. Tumors localized in the left side of the colon (colon descendens) manifest symptoms earlier because of the bowel obstruction they cause (ileus). Tumors in the left colon are usually accompanied with abdominal pain and constipation. Other diseases are also responsible for the same

Diverticulitis symptoms vs. colon cancer symptoms?

She isn''t bleeding (so she tells me) and I don''t think the attacks...

As the cancer progresses you can have severe abdomial pain and mayby a blockage ( can`t pass stool or pass only liquid). Everyone should have a colonscopy before age 50. If you have any abnornal pain or are just worried, see your doctor.. My mother had colon cancer that went into her lymphnodes.
