I am a nurse. I'm quite curious why many people nowadays has colon cancer. According to studies, increase number of people who has colon cancer because of the food that they eat. But one factor that you have to look at is your stool. Alternate hard and loose stools is one indication. In addition, pencil stool(thinner than normal) and pellet-like stool is an indication of colon cancer. One more thing, if your stool is with blood it is also an indication. Check your stool everyday and follow up with a doctor to confirm! Now... what is your stool?

Good thing you shared these signs and symptoms of colon cancer, nowadays, the mortality rate of colon cancer deaths is uprising and we've got to be conscious about this.

I heard a lot of testimonials when I was lecturing or conducting seminars about herbal products and at one point I hear people describe the kind of stools they have.

oh okay.. thank you for your information - but i think we needed more information than what you have provided. i don't think we would be able to indicate such a disease by means of stool identification especially for us who are not familiar as to what the stool must look like, etc.

My stool this morning is watery, maybe because of the melon juice with milk that I drunk last night. This is a very informative post. I like it. Now I know that I should really observe my stool to monitor if I already have colon cancer or symptoms of colon cancer or none. On the one hand, I think the blood in stool can be either fresh blood or blood from the intestine or stomach, I think these have different indications but I can't remember it anymore.
