Where do I stand?

It’s not easy to think about cancer risks.  But early detection is so important in the successful treatment of colorectal cancer, you owe it to yourself to think about these questions.

 

Have I had any of the following?  YES or NO

  • A change in bowel habits such as diarrhea, constipation, or both; if they last more than two weeks.
  • Frequent or constant cramps, if they last for more than two weeks.           
  • Frequent gas pains.
  • Blood on or in the stool.
  • Stools that are narrower than usual.
  • Stomach bloating, fullness, or cramps.
  • A strong and continuing need to move your bowels, but with little stool.
  • A feeling that the bowel does not empty completely.
  • Unexplained weight loss.
  • Constantly feeling tired.

  

If you answered YES to any question, see your health care provider and ask about a Colorectal Cancer Screening Test.
