Colon Cancer Symptom #2: Diarrhea

Diarrhea along with constipation is quite the common symptom of colon cancer in its early stages. Once again, the polyps that have developed in the walls of the colon, cause changes in bowel movements including diarrhea and constipation as the most usual ones.

If you experience diarrhea for more than a couple of days, do report this symptom to your doctor. It might not be anything or it might be your body telling you that you are entering the battle against colon cancer. Diarrhea is a serious problem since it causes additional complications such as dehydration and loss of nutrients to occur.
