Would I lose weight with colon cancer!?
No weight loss, no blood. No abdominal painw. I have noticed at times my stomach feels like a balloon is being blown up inside me which caused some discomfort but not pain
I don't each much fibre or drink alot of water
Also my anus itches quite alot and is sore sometimes, this sounds graphic but my anus gets damp alot even after wiping (sweat due to being over weight?)
