The symptoms of colon cancer can be similar to intestinal cancer symptoms, anal cancer symptoms or a number of gastrointestinal conditions. Because colon cancer symptoms may not appear in the early stages of the disease, people over the age of 50 should undergo regular colorectal cancer screenings and examinations to ensure that cancer is caught at the earliest possible stage. Colon cancer symptoms can include:
- Bloody stool
- Atypical abdominal or gas pain
- Unintended weight loss
- Should you experience any of these symptoms, make an appointment with a Florida Hospital physician for a colorectal screening.
