    Unhappy Really scared I have colon cancer

    Iíve been having issues for a few weeks now. I been having cramping lower abdominal pain like you get when you need to go to the bathroom and only go a little bit. And now I have this near constant pain and discomfort in my lower abdominal area. Iíve thought about going to the er but the most they will do is probably a ct scan which would only show if it was advanced... I had a colonoscopy around 5 years ago which they did remove a pre cancerous polyp so Iím definitely more at risk than usual but I read it usually takes around 10 years for a colon polyp to turn into cancer. You guys think this could be colon cancer?? I see the GI doc January 8th but god thatís so far away....

    I’ve also been dealing with alternating loose stools and constipation and my stools have been thin which I know are classic signs... I haven’t noticed any blood in my stools but I read you don’t always have blood in stool..

    I think people have done more than a fair share of replying in the past Hypo. What is the update on all those illnesses?

    Just don’t know why my threads always get moved out of the health anxiety forum. There’s plenty of people who are posting about symptoms and never get moved....
