Re: How did you first discover or got diagnosed with colorectal cancer ?

As strange as it may sound my husband's only symptoms were night sweats and fever for 6-7 months before his diagnoses. We have been to different emergency rooms to different specialists ( pulmonologist, endocrinologist, urologist), they couldn't find anything wrong but, just in case they were treati...
