My symptoms were intestinal cramping, bloating, skinny stool, and the feeling that I really had to go but couldn't. In the beginning the symptoms were sporatic so I thought it was stress or food related. But then they intensified and became more persistant. If you are having problems for more that 2 weeks....then it is worth a check!

You must also remeber that not everybody has symtoms even if they have colon cancer. I had no discomfort, no bleeding, no gas problems, what I did not have was a tumor. Only a good colonoscopy can tell you the truth. If you do have any of the symptoms listed on the first page of this wesite DO NO HESITATE get scoped as soon as possible. IT could save your life it did for me.

I had stomach cramping, bloating, constipation, no appetite. These symptoms went on for about three weeks prior to diagnosis. They became quite intense during the last week.

no real symptoms until it spread to my pancreas...but then i was starting to get the other symptoms as well. just go down the whole list of what's listed on this website...i had it! definelty don't hesitate to get scoped i was only 30 when dx! had my entier family get scoped too and my sister was just turning 40 and had a polyp removed...thank goodness non-cancerous but all this stuff is worth it if the rest of my family never has to experience what i'm going through. :roll:
