Re: Question About Staging

First of all, it’s great news that your CT didn’t show any organ involvement. I am guessing your next scan is an MRI—I asked this exact questions of doctors when my mom was between scans and got this answer: it is possible for an MRI to pick up something the CT can’t, particularly in the pelvic reg...

I have another procedure on Wednesday of this week to take a look at the cancer in my sigmoid colon to determine how far the cancer has penetrated the layers of the colon. Can I still be stage 4 e...

Re: Flexible Sigmoidoscopy Scheduled for end of month, and I fear I might have colon cancer

They did see some suspicious spots on lymph nodes, but no spread to other organs. I have another procedure this week to see how far the cancer has penet...

Re: Flexible Sigmoidoscopy Scheduled for end of month, and I fear I might have colon cancer

I had my procedure this morning. They found a mass 60mm x 50mm in my rectosigmoid colon. Biopsies were taken and I am to have a colonoscopy tomorrow morning. So, two days on the liquid diet. How soon do you find out what stage the cancer is? The Doctor gave a referral to a surgeon so I should hear f...

Re: Flexible Sigmoidoscopy Scheduled for end of month, and I fear I might have colon cancer

I contacted my sister to confirm our family history did not have colon cancer and she notified me that she has diverticulitis. She then goes on to tell me that our grandmother had it as well. This gives me a glimmer of hope that perhaps I am dealing with an incurable disease versus cancer. Time is g...

Many people come here convienced that they have cancer only to learn after the colonoscopy that they are fine. Also know that many different issues could be causing your sym...

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy Scheduled for end of month, and I fear I might have colon cancer

Hello all, This is my first post on here. I went to the doctors a couple weeks back after I noticed some blood mixed in with my poop. In retrospect, my bowel movements changed years ago. First I started to have to go every morning like clockwork. Then here the past 6 months, I have had to go 2-3 tim...
