Itchiness is usually associated with hemorrhoids. How old are you? Does colon cancer run in your family

So sorry this thread got buried.

This time around, because of location, doctors have recommended what I understand to be the protocol for...

Re: Question about bleeding after BM

Why would you go back and wipe yourself again? Do you have any itchiness or pain after passing a stool?

Re: Opinions on my situation? Scared?

I've been on the forum for 10+ years, I only know of one other teenager diagnosed with this cancer and believe me, we've had many people your age grp come here con...

Re: Feeling overwhelmed

The hospice nurse ruled out stroke and thinks the cancer is in his brain. Has anyone else experienced this? I just wondered what we are looking at for life expectancy now. Rhonda I believe the nurse is right about possible brain mets. While it is rare, it does happen. I am so sorry for what you are...

Re: HELP! Blood in stool - colon cancer or something else?

Hey, I should also add that I know rectal itching and diarrhea can be symptoms too. About a week ago I had a bad case of rectal itching that had me going back to wipe every two minutes or so for abut 15 minutes until I decided to put up with it.

Re: Feeling really sad and in need of support

One thing that really helped get me through chemo was one fun day every week. I would not see Dr.(s) on this day, I would do something fun like getting together with a girl friend. It was one day I would not think about my cancer. Kind of a vacation from cancer.

Good luck,

Lee
