Symptoms

Early-stage colorectal cancer may not cause any symptoms. That is why it is so important to get regular colorectal cancer screening tests.

When colorectal cancer does cause symptoms, they may include:

  • diarrhea or constipation
  • feeling that the bowel does not empty completely
  • blood (either bright red or very dark) in the stool
  • passing stools that are narrower than usual
  • frequent gas pains or cramps, or feeling full or bloated
  • unexplained weight loss
  • fatigue
  • nausea or vomiting

A healthcare provider should be consulted to determine the cause of these symptoms as they can be caused by conditions other than cancer.
