Do I Have Colon Cancer?
As mentioned, many of colon cancer’s telltale symptoms don’t become noticeable until the disease is relatively advanced. It’s for this reason that we recommend getting screened on a regular basis, especially if you are over the age of 50. If you have a family history of cancer (any kind), it’s recommended that you begin getting screened at an earlier age. Some of the symptoms that can indicate the presence of colon cancer include:
- A noticeable change in bowel movement habits
- Changing bowel consistency
- Rectal bleeding
- Persistent pain or discomfort
- A feeling of fullness in the bowels
- Regular camping
- Constant gas
