Colon cancer

How quickly can it come on?
I'm freaking out a little bit because my mom has recently lost 10-15 lbs with no lifestyle change,and has been suffering with constipation for a few weeks. I looked om Web MD and colon cancer was mentioned as a reason for chronic constipation!
This time last year she had her gall bladder and a section of intestine removed. I really hope she doesn't have more intestine removed due to the same reason,scar adhesions OR cancer!
She sees her doctor tomorrow for an unrelated issue. I hope she mentions it. I'm unable to go with her,or I would.

  • Hope your mom is ok. Don't put too much stock in WebMD.

  • Only the doctor and their test will know. God bless my friend.
