Signs of Colon Cancer are described below. If you have colon cancer, do not fear. Alternative Medicine provides several herbal cures that include essiac, ellagic acid, and graviola. Electromedicine therapies include Rife, Beck, and Lakhovsky devices. Cancer is caused by symbiotic organisms that turn parasitic when the diet is overly acidic, and can be avoided with an alkaline pH diet.


Colon cancer is a type of cancer that grows in the colon, or large intestine (or bowel). This is the lower part of the intestines involved in absorbing nutrients and water from the digested food. It can be divided into three sections, the ascending, traverse, and descending colon. The rectum at the end of the colon is where the feces collect before they are expelled through the anus with a bowel movement.

Colon cancer is most common in people over 50, and rare in people under 40. It is the third most common cancer after lung and breast cancer. In most cases, colon cancer begins as a polyp and grows into a tumor if left untreated. A polyp is a small ball of tissue that sticks out on a stalk from the lining of the bowel. Sometimes polyps contain an adenoma, an overgrowth of cells from the bowel lining. Most large bowel cancers develop from a pre-existing adenoma.

Signs of Colon Cancer
It is important to emphasize that most people have no signs of colon cancer when it is just developing.  Reported signs include:

Pain, cramps, or tenderness in the lower abdomen

Diarrhea that lasts for more than several days

Different stools that may have a different size or shape

Weight loss

A lump in the abdomen

Change in bowel habits


Pain in the appendix

A feeling of fullness in the bowel that is not relieved by a bowel movement

Jaundice (a yellowish coloration of the skin)

Bowel cancers tend to bleed easily so blood in the stool is cause for concern, but blood is usually the result of hemorrhoids (piles). Not all polyps bleed, and not all polyps bleed all of the time. The blood can be invisible to the naked eye, but loss of blood can result in anemia (a shortage of iron) which can cause tiredness and breathlessness.

A physical exam will rarely show any abnormalities, and a rectal exam will reveal rectal cancer but not colon cancer.  A colonoscope can view the entire colon for evidence of cancer.

Medicine of today does not know the cause of cancer, and what it calls prevention is really early detection.  Rather than watch for the symptoms of colon cancer, you may feel better to know the cause of cancer and how to prevent it. But if you have symptoms, Alternative Medicine offers herbal and electromedicine cancer cures; see the links below.
