Symptoms of Colorectal Cancer

The following are the most common symptoms of colorectal cancer. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently.

  • a change in bowel habits such as diarrhea, constipation or narrowing of the stool that lasts for more than a few days
  • rectal bleeding or blood in the stool
  • cramping or gnawing stomach pain
  • decreased appetite
  • vomiting
  • weakness and fatigue
  • jaundice ( yellowing of the skin and eyes)

The symptoms of colorectal cancer may resemble other conditions, such as infections, hemorrhoids and inflammatory bowel disease. It is also possible to have colon cancer and not have any symptoms. Always consult your physician for a diagnosis.
