What Are All Symptoms of Colon Cancer?

Q:

What are all symptoms of colon cancer

A:

Many people with colon cancer don’t show any symptom. That’s why it is so important to keep up with regular screening tests. When the disease leads to symptoms at any stage, they may include:

  • Blood (dark red or black) in the stool.
  • Constipation and diarrhea. These changes of bowl movement can also be symptoms of other, less serious conditions, for example, a stomach virus. But if it lasts for a long time, see a doctor.
  • Long, thin, pencil-like stools. That means something is blocking your colon. The blockage could be a tumor or something else.
  • Extreme Fatigue. Feeling tired all the time could be a sign that the tumor is bleeding and you’ve lost iron.
  • Abdominal pain or bloating. Colon tumors can cause a blockage that makes it hard to fully empty your bowels so that you may feel bloated all the time.
  • Unplanned weight loss. If you haven’t changed your diet and exercise habits. a weight loss of 10 pounds or above could be cancer, especially if you at the same time have other colon cancer symptoms.
  • Nausea and vomiting, in the case that the tumor causes an obstruction.
  • Other symptoms you have depend on where the cancer has spread.
