    Could this be colon or rectal cancer? HELP

    27 year old Female SHOULD BE MENTIONED THAT ALL OF THESE SYMPTOMS ARE NOT LIKE ME AT ALL!!! April 1st and April 2nd I was in bed all day long, I blamed it on work and brushed it off as it caught up to me. My sister thought it was so odd since I like to go out all the time.

So now day 12th and I have diarrhea and I am constipated....

    Blood in urine

    A year ago they found blood in my urine and sent me to a urologist. They did another UA, rectal exam, cystoscopy, CT Scan of my abdominal and pelvic area. They said I could have gallstones and fatty liver. There was moderate hydrothropy of the right lobe of my prostrate but everything was normal. I've also had a colonoscopy two years ago with one polyp that surgeon said had no way of being cancer. I've had two CT Scans of my head. 3 chest xrays, numerous blood work and it's all came back....

    Colon Cancer

    If a standard routine physical & DRE do not show signs of or suspicions of colorectal cancer, does that mean you dont have it? 1st relative colon cancer history in family. Is it ever possible that a colonoscopy can spot colon cancer when a physical, DRE, and standard blood work did not?

    Colonoscopy

    3 yrs ago, I had my 3rd colonoscopy. I'm on a kidney/pancreas transplant list, so having a colonoscopy often is important. I've never had an issue, to my knowledge. Recently I saw 1 of my doctors who offhandedly, mentioned my last colonoscopy showed precancerous polyps. Wouldnt that be something I should have been told about right away? It sounds like a serious diagnosis

    Carcinoid Syndrome?

    Two months ago I had diarrhea and loss of appetite for a month, and incredibly loud bowel sounds. They discovered a 3.5cm fluid-filled cyst on my ovary, and said this was the cause. I had a CT done, blood tests, and stool tests. Two months later, I do not have diarrhea and I feel as though the cyst has shrunken, but my bowels are very loud. People sitting next to me can hear them making noise. A month ago, my face and ears became flushed for hours. I went to the ER. BP was great, heart rate was normal....
