3 Symptoms that May Indicate Colorectal Cancer

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. To celebrate, learn to be aware of the following three symptoms that, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, could indicate the presence of precancerous polyps or colorectal cancer.

  1. Blood in or on the stool.
  2. Severe stomach pain and cramping that does not go away.
  3. Unexplained and significant weight loss.

If you recognize these symptoms it’s a good idea to schedule a screening test to further investigate the cause. And if you’re 50 and over, it’s important to have a screening done whether you’re experiencing symptoms or not. Finding the presence of precancerous polyps or colorectal cancer early could save your life.
