The signs and symptoms for colorectal cancer aren't the most comfortable to talk about with a physician. But if noticed early, that conversation could potentially save your life.
The most common symptoms of colorectal cancer are:
- Blood in the stool
- A change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea or constipation
- Persistent abdominal discomfort or pain
- Unexplained weight loss
Although colorectal cancer may not produce symptoms, you should contact your health care provider if you have concerns or if you experience any of these symptoms.
