In the early stages of bowel cancer, it is common for patients to have no symptoms. However, the symptoms of bowel cancer may include:
– Ongoing changes in bowel movements (constipation, looser stools, having to go more or less often)
– Rectal bleeding or blood found in the stool
– Bowels not emptying completely after a bowel movement.
– Abdominal pain or swelling
– Unexplained Anemia
– Weight loss
It should be noted that many of these symptoms are often caused by other conditions, such as food intolerances or medicines.
