Signs and Symptoms of Colon Cancer


Dr. Neilanjan Nandi, a Drexel Medicine gastroenterologist, reviews some common signs and symptoms of colon cancer.


When it comes to the subtle signs and symptoms of cancer, remember always trust your gut. In fact some of the subtle symptoms of colon cancer can be no symptoms at all, or a loss of appetite, feelings of extreme lethargy or weakness or unintentional weight loss. Perhaps some of the more obvious signs of colon cancer may be blood persistent in the stools, or a change in the quality of your bowel movements. Perhaps it went from having regular bowel movements to constipation, or diarrhea. Remember, trust your instincts and consult your doctor today.
