    Does This Sound Like a Tumor in My Colon?

    Once again, I find myself in a spot in life where my syptoms could either be nothing or colon cancer. This one has caused me a large amount of stress and worry and I can't get a doctors appt until next Tuesday.

    It started when my stomach being really bloated weeks and the bloat will not go away. I noticed around my belly button that there is a slight bludge and it feels harder than other parts of my stomach. My gf said it feels like knot.

    So knowing bloating is a sign ,I am really scared that this a large tumor.
    However, I am having normal bowl movements! Sometimes even fairly large in size. Also, the size of the bulge does change based on how bloating I am. Also, I don't feel it when I sit down. My stomach feels normal. It's when I stand up and things are stretched out.

    I would think a tumor would have to be fairly big to cause it to appear from the outside and it wouldn't change in shape as well as block my stools.

    I don't think its cancer if you don't have pain, blood or any other symptoms...bloating could be so many things...But you should see a doctor as you sound stressed.

    The lump could be a hernia. If you push on it, does it disappear a bit? A doctor examination will relieve your mind. Sera
