Symptoms of large bowel cancer

The symptoms of colorectal cancer can be

  • Bleeding from the back passage (rectum) or blood in your stools        
  • A change in normal bowel habits towards diarrhoea or looser stools that lasts longer than 6 weeks       
  • A lump that your doctor can feel in the right side of your abdomen, or in your rectum       
  • A straining feeling in the rectum      
  • Losing weight       
  • Pain in your abdomen or rectum      
  • Anaemia (a low level of red blood cells)
Because bowel tumours can bleed at times, cancer of the bowel often causes a shortage of red blood cells.  This is called anaemia.  It can lead to tiredness and sometimes breathlessness.  

Sometimes cancer of the bowel can cause a blockage. Your doctor may call this a bowel obstruction.  The symptoms of this are
  • Griping pains in the abdomen       
  • Feeling bloated        
  • Constipation        
  • Being sick

What to bear in mind

All these symptoms can be caused by other diseases, apart from cancer.  Many of these other conditions are much less serious than bowel cancer, such as piles (haemorrhoids), infections or inflammatory bowel disease.  If you are young and have bleeding from the back passage with itching and soreness, you are much more likely to have piles than bowel cancer. Also, many people with colorectal cancer don't have these symptoms.  So always ask your family doctor if you are worried about any symptoms that you have.

Seeing your GP

If you are worried about any symptoms that you think could be caused by cancer in the bowel you should go to see your GP.  Your doctor will take account of your age and your symptoms to decide whether there is a possibility of bowel cancer.  Depending on your age and the symptoms you have, you may need  to see a bowel cancer specialist urgently.  Symptoms that may need urgent referral include
  • A lump the GP can feel in the right side of the abdomen or rectum (back passage)      
  • Anaemia      
  • A change in your bowel habits towards looser or more frequent stools, that lasts 6 weeks or more      
  • Bleeding from the back passage (rectum)
