Sorry to hear about your sister and that does seem odd but I guess anything is possible. Last year a fews after I turned 45 I found out I had stage 2 colon cancer. A year later all is well. Keep positive and she will get through it. They are pretty good a treating colon cancer. Prayer with you, your sister and family.

Thanks for your responses.
ShearWonders: So sorry this is happening to your daughter. I hope she is responding well to treatment. My sister is in her 3rd week of treatment and is doing very well.
5 days of chemo & radiation, 28 more radiation treatments, than 5 more days of chemo.
Hoping to shrink the "mass" and possibly avoid surgery. Her type of cancer cell
( squamous cell) apparently responds well to this treatment.
I too was a complete basket case when she was diagnosed. She is the "glue" to our family. Prayers to you and your daughter.

The reason is your GI missed flat legions

Again, we all know someone that says" how can i have crc cancer, i just got a negative colo 3 years ago. the reason is your gi was rushing through the procedure and missed very cancerous flat legions. This makes a colo a much less attractive test in my opinion. That is why Stool DNA is so valuable. Ask your dr. about and and have him give you a prescription.

Is stool DNA where they check for invisible blood in the stool?
