Constipation, diarrhea, an inability to go, or distinct change in the size/shape/color of your stool could be a colon cancer symptom. More females than males are actually diagnosed with colon. Abdominal pain Abdominal pain, bloating, and nausea are also potential signs of colon cancer in women. These symptoms can occur after you eat and can be so uncomfortable that they cause a reduction in food intake (and eventual weight loss).

6. Signs of colon cancer in women mostly manifest as abnormalities in bowel movement. Adults, especially women, must pay close attention to changes in their bowel habits, such as: – change in stool consistency – frequent diarrhea and or constipation. Common symptoms of colon cancer to be aware of and watch out for include: Blood in your stool or bleeding from your rectum — Any amount or color of bleeding can be an early sign, so make sure you see a health care professional.

Tell your doctor if your poop habits change for more than a few days or you have other symptoms like: Diarrhea Constipation Thin, dark, or bloody poop Belly pain or cramps Weakness and tiredness Unexplained weight loss.

When you feel pain such as cramps, bloating and gas; or if your bowel movements are accompanied by pain, these can be a result of colon cancer or some other health problems. Symptoms of colon cancer in women are usually confused with other health issues.

And most of these symptoms are usually a result of a chain reaction another symptom.

  • Get tested. The sleep medication alone makes it worth your time. Also might save your life as well. I just had my 1st. It’s not as bad as I thought it would be. You feel nothing, go to sleep, wake up 20 mins. later with zero knowledge that you’ve had a scope up your poop shoot and can go about your day. It’s worth it.

Especially when I overeating my whole face getting red and if I keep overeating I go to toilet two to three times a week. I’ve seen my gp but they has no idea the symptoms.
