What are the symptoms of colorectal cancer?

It’s important to now, patients may be asymptomatic. You may have NO symptoms whatsoever, especially early on.

Symptoms may include:

  • Blood in the stool

  • The sensation that you cannot completely empty your bowels

  • Abdominal pain, cramping, fullness, gas or bloating that won’t go away

  • Unintentional weight loss 

  • Iron deficiency anemia (This is a red flag symptom and always needs evaluated by a medical professional!)

  • Unexplained fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, a generalized feeling of just not being well

  • Fevers, chills, sweats, and/or night sweats

  • Back pain that keeps you up at night and/or doesn’t go away. 

If you have any concerning symptoms whatsoever, schedule an appointment with our office for a comprehensive workup and to discuss whether colonoscopy or another test is right for you!
