Re: My 79 yr old mother-in-law...symptoms...
I recently learnt that there CAN be a connection between DVT and pelvic tumours. But not all DVT's indicate that. It is not surprising however, given her symptoms, that they are checking her for colo-rectal cancer. Try not to worry until the results are in...I know that is not easy, but you may be worrying about nothing. Do let us know how it turns out.
Husband dx July 2003, advanced rectal cancer stage 111C; myself dx July 2006 indolent lymphoma; husband dx February 2010, stage 2 prostate cancer.
