Has anyone had a tumor in the lower part of the colon.  They found 3 and I need to wait on the biopsy.  Have had problems with stools for the past year, blood, run to restroom, body aches, skin blemishes, bladder pain and they haven't diagnosed me with Chrons or UC yet.    My blood results remain low/anemic.  Please write back to me as I am not sure what to think about the tumors.  I was told they were hemmorhoids at first but now they are tumors.

Hi honey, I really don't know anything about your tumor situation, but I wanted to say hi, and hope that
someone will be along soon to help with your question. I wish you lots of luck....

I too won't be much help. I'm glad they took a biopsy and you will figure out what is wrong. Best thing you can do is find out and get it taken care of either way. Doesn't sound like much fun, but hopefully you will feel better. Please keep us updated as to what is going on with you. I'm sure there's someone out there that has been through the same thing. HUGS

Hi sweet39.... geez, I sure hope you get your results quickly...nothing worse than worrying about something, that might turn out to be nothing. When are they going to remove those darn things?
Keep us posted ok. Thinking of you and sending positive energy and prayers your way.

Hi Sweet39,
Colon cancer is fairly common and the great news is that they have made great advances in treatment in the last couple of years. The recovery times after surgery have really improved and better/new drug treatments certainly have made a world of difference! Hang in there! I am sure it is tough -- especially not knowing all the facts. I'm praying you have a great colo-rectal surgeon who will really take care of you!! Let us know your biopsy results!
