Weight gain is a good sign that it is not cancer. Weight loss is usually associated with colon cancer. I had weight loss prior to my diagnoses. Know that colon cancer is one of the slower growing cancers, especially in the beginning.
Hi Lee, hubby and I have said to each other: Hm.. wonder if our GP would have reacted/investigated if hubby had told him that he lost 2 kilo in a month. That was the only(!) sign he had before he got totally blocked.
Every 2 years he had done a screen test that came recommended in the post. Every time it was good news... apart from that small weight loss, he had NO signs until totally blocked and emergency colostomy and .. stage IV.
Now we recommend colonoscopy to all our friends.
Good Luck to you Starr12 !
Keeping my fingers crossed for good news for your DH !

I wanted to give you all an update. My husband had his colonoscopy and endoscopy today and he has internal hemmroids and an inflamed hiatal hernia, which may be the causation to his iron deficiency anemia.
He doesn’t have any polyps or tumors in his stomach or colon. His doctor wants him to have an X-ray of his small intestine just to rule out anything else.
His iron deficiency anemia is being treated with iron infusions.
Otherwise, all went well today.
I am very grateful for being able to share my concerns here with this group.
Thank you to those who helped me these past two weeks.
I wish you all the best.
