Symptoms of Colon Cancer

Colon cancer can be present for several years before symptoms develop, making early detection difficult without appropriate screening and diagnostic studies. Symptoms vary by tumor location and often are not present at all. Signs and symptoms of colon and rectal cancer include:

  • A change in your bowel habits, including diarrhea, constipation, narrowed stool or a feeling that your bowels aren’t emptying completely
  • Blood in your stool, on the tissue, or dripping into the bowl
  • Abdominal pain, cramping or bloating
  • Weakness, shortness of breath or fatigue
  • Unexplained weight loss

It is important that you talk to your physician about your risk factors and screening options. If you need help finding a physician, browse our providers online.
