Posted , 4 users are following.

I seem to have all the symptoms of colon cancer other than blood in my stool. Ive lost 5-10 pounds over the last year and im only 17. My family also has no history of colon cancer to. Am i just over thinking or could i really have cancer?

    Schedule a colonoscopy. Very important if this runs in the family.

    same here have a colonoscopy every 2 years. They pluck out pyallops and send to the lab for evaluation. Very simple proceedure.

    be proactive and put your health first .

    If there are other symptoms like pain etc go to your doctor and get it checked out your very young for colon cancer but losing weight itself could be a hundred different things but go see your doctor to put your mind at rests

    I'm retry sure it's nothing to worry about

    Hi roscoe82837

    If there is no blood in your stool then I doubt you have colon cancer....and you say there is no family history of colon cancer either...but erring on the side of caution i would visit your doc tell of your symptoms and request a colonoscopy if you are anxious about it. The anxiety may be the cause of your weight wishes...
