7. Unexplained Anemia


Anemia refers to a low red blood cell count in the body. The hemoglobin in red blood cells carries oxygen throughout the body.

Symptoms of anemia, such as pale skin, a fast or irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, dizziness, and cold hands and feet, should not be taken lightly.


Unexplained anemia may be due to colon cancer. Typically, cancer in the right-side of the colon causes iron-deficiency anemia. This happens when tumors start bleeding slowly into the digestive tract, causing blood loss over time.

A 2008 study published in the British Journal of Cancer confirms a strong connection between anemia and cancer, with the risk rising as the hemoglobin level falls. This study also confirms iron deficiency as an independent predictor of cancer.

If you have signs of anemia, consult your doctor immediately to get your hemoglobin level checked.


8. Unexplained Weight Loss

If you are above the age of 50 and rapidly losing weight without any known reason, it is a cause for concern. Sudden, unexplained weight loss can indicate a serious health problem, including colon or rectal cancer.

A 2006 study published in the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England found that unexplained weight loss happens mostly during advanced stages of colorectal cancers.

The growth of a tumor can lead to loss of appetite, as cancer can affect your metabolism, thus causing weight loss.

If you are rapidly losing weight without changing your diet or exercise routine, discuss this with your doctor.

  3. I has stage 3 colon cancer and I can say that the very first warning sign, for most cancer is a constant fewer, this occurs cause your body is fighting against the cancer, like it would do, for say the flu. A constant low grade fever is the first sign that you should get tested, followed by fatigue.

  4. My husband also stage 3 colon cancer never had fever.. he had one person say you losing weight and another said your color is off go see a dr and a third gave him a bear hug and felt pain were his signs….

  5. Another symptom to watch for is indigestion & burping. My 36 year old daughter has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. None of the symptoms mentioned above. She is currently unergoing chemotherapy, this is the only option she has at this time. Along with good nutrition, juicing & several other natural herbs. She is responding well to the therapy.
    We would like to make an awarness of the connection of Gallbladder removal & Colon Cancer as well as Birthcontrol. Please consider getting checked out if you fit some of these commonarities. My Daughter had her Gallbladder removed almost 12 years ago and was also using birth control.
    Only Colon cancer in our family was an uncle who was diagnosed in his late 70s., , some breast cancer, BUT never someone only 36 years old and in great shape. She is currently an Officer in the US Navy, Nurse & in great shape!

    1. Sending positive vibes her way. I too had my gallbladder removed when I was just 20 and 3 mths pregnant with my eldest son. I was strong, healthy, a regular at the gym and pool and ate like a rabbit.

  6. I have been diagnosed with both familial adenomatous polypsis which is a hereditary bowel condition was just told I have diversiticulis.
    I am not obese,no longer smoke don’t have diabetes and I’m 2years shy of my 50th. I have to undergo a colonoscopy every year each time the doctor finds more polyps right through my colon. 11 was the last count. Fortunately at the moment they are benign. I’ve already been told I have a high risk for developing cancer. My dear Aunt passed away last year from bowel cancer and both my parents suffered the same fate of dying from cancer. My father died of lung cancer after giving up smoking 15 years before. My Mother,sister to my Aunt was riddled with it.
    It is as it is. K 🤔🙄
