Re: Peri met and liver mets

I've been here a few years now, and I see a pattern. I see newbies who are 100% convinced they have colon cancer, thanks to Dr. ...

Re: So scared I cant stop crying

First avoid Dr. Google!! The information out there is either out of date or flat out wrong. Until you get that scope ask questions here and vent your frustration. Believe me, you all understand your fear. Your symptoms could be cause by many things, cancer is just "one" possibility. So don...

Re: New member here - CT scan has me worried

Hi and welcome, Have you ever had a colonoscopy in the past? If so when. If not, you probably should get one as they recommend starting by age 50.
