Ongoing abdominal pain or discomfort — including gas, indigestion, pressure, bloating and cramps — can signal colon cancer. Most frequently, abdominal pains or cramps are associated with cancers on the left side of your colon. As the tumor grows through the colon or bleeds, it may irritate the lining of the abdomen.
Regardless, the sooner you see a doctor the better your chances of a quick recovery. Feeling uncomfortable in your own skin is not common. The body has natural defenses, and if you sense something wrong, then you’re probably on the right track.
