I'm new here, I'm awaiting a biopsy to see what's what. But here's my story so far...
I'm 34, female, notice blood in poo, stomach aches, loss of appetite, no energy and a lump in left side of stomach. Have had a stool test and markers came back high, bloods showed low haemoglobin levels, an X-ray that confirms there is a lump, scans showed a lump but couldn't confirm where it was gynae or gastro, finally had MRI that confirmed 7.5cm lump in sigmoid colon. Dr suspects colon cancer, so booked me for colonoscopy and biopsy. I am seeing Consultant next week, was just wondering considering the size of the mass do you think they would operate before a colonoscopy/biopsy or still do that first. From what I've read up on 7.5 cms seems to be pretty big for the area it's in. Also what time scale am I looking at, once they know what it is do they operate quickly? Sorry for long post!!
