Symptoms of colon cancer are not always easy to spot they may be hidden for several years before you notice something is wrong. Some of the signs and symptoms of colon cancer are: blood in stool, some sort of change in bowel movements, diarrhea or constipation, abdominal pain, iron deficiency, weight loss, fatigue or weakness.
These are only a few of the signs and they may be signaling something else, just because you show some of these signs it does not mean you have colon cancer.
But if you are showing any or a combination of these signs and are not sure what the cause go to your primary care physician and find out what the cause of your health problems are.
