Colon Cancer Symptoms


Many people with colon cancer have no symptoms in the early stages of the disease. This is why colon cancer screening, also known as a colonoscopy, is so important. When symptoms appear, this may signal a more advanced case of colon cancer.

What are the signs and symptoms of colon cancer?

  • Persistent abdominal discomfort or pain
  • A change in your bowel habits, including diarrhea or constipation or a change in the consistency of your stool
  • Rectal bleeding or blood in your stool
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Unexplained anemia
  • Weight loss that is unintentional.

In honor of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, we urge you to schedule a colonoscopy if you are experiencing any of these symptoms, have a history of colon cancer in your family, or are 50+ years of age. Learn more about colon cancer »
