Colon Cancer Support Group

Colorectal cancer, also called colon cancer or bowel cancer, includes cancerous growths in the colon, rectum and appendix. Many colorectal cancers are thought to arise from mushroom-like growths that are usually benign, but some may develop into cancer over time. The majority of the time, the diagnosis of localized colon cancer is through colonoscopy.

One year later

Hello everyone. I was 38 when they found my tumor in my colon. It was removed and I had a left colectomy it didn't spread anywhere else but I had 6months of chemo in case. My first colonoscopy a year later it came out clear in sep 2017 I have my first scan but for now I am NED. I wanted to know if anyone still has problems with their bowels? I can go 6 times a day to being constipated I don't have my gall bladder either and heard that affects your bowels also. Thank you for the help.

    New to the group and recently diagnosed

    On Sept.13th I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer metastasized to the liver. I haven't started chemo yet. I am wondering if there is anyone out there that has any idea what is in store for me. I know not all people are the same or react the same but I would like to have an idea of what's next.
