Re: Help!! Bright red blood on the surface of stool

Okay, because you were scoped 4 years ago, more than likely it is NOT cancer. From polyp to cancer, takes about 10 years. For a few rare people due to genetic disorder, process takes a few years. Again, VERY RARE, so don't assume you fall into the catagory, especially since your last scope was clea...

Re: Too many tumors to count... newbie here

I am very sorry to hear about your diagnosis. My heart is broken. I have not been diagnosed but will see a gastro physician this week. I am petrified at what he may find. I have been having nausea, pain on my left near ovary, blood in stool and recent labs showed anemia. I've talked to my physician ...

Re: Colon cancer scared!

I'm glad you got approval for a colonoscopy. While they are not very fun it really is the only way to rule it out. My 9 cm tumor showed as inflammation on my initial CT scan and my liver Mets were said to be lesions. I had a 10 almost 11 cm tumor between the lobes of my liver as well as a few small...

Re: Low HCT & HBC

Lee, I am not sure what could be the reason for the anemia. I just know I ended up in the ER with severe stomach pain and an ultrasound showed a gallstone stuck in the neck of my bile duct so I was admitted and given antibiotics and removal the next day. The ER Dr. never gave me any results I seen m...

Low HCT & HBC

Hi everyone. I had labs and my HBC and HCT both are low. These are both indicators of anemia and colon cancer. I am scared out of my mind, as I have had blood in my stool. I see a gastro physician next week. Anyone have anything to share, add or any words of encouragement?

Re: What was everyone's symptoms of colon cancer

That is horrible how this disease dosen't show symptoms until too late and for some young one's the symptoms get down played by their physician which results in late stahe diagnosis. So very sad!
