I might have a very large tumor in my colon.


I am new to the forum. I am having some GI problems for about four years. Constipation , alot of gas , narrow stool , color changes in stool.I have been told that I have IBS as many people were told.My GI doctor told me "having colon cancer at my age is unlikely ". I was 34 at the time now I am 38.
During last four years , I only had blood works , whole abdomen ultrasonografi , pelvic MRI but no colonoscopy.

2 weeks ago , I was checking my self. So I felt a solid mass under my right rib cage. It is quite large one.It was mobile. Sometimes I felt that near my stomach , sometimes near my belly button. That is why I thought It is something in the colon. I rushed to my doctor and made him feel the mass. So he ordered a CT scan for all abdomen.I am going to have the results tomorrow.He will order a colonoscopy depending on CT scan result.

Do you think , could a tumor in a colon be felt easly by hand. Have you heard /experienced something like that.

I got my CT scan results today. Everything was normal. The doctor ordered a colonoscopy for the 7th of september. He told me CT scan would have shown If something like tumor was in the colon.I still could not get relief an I still feel the solid mass under my rib.

I don't know, but I recommend Dr. Joanna Budwig's diet largely consisting of eating a lot of cottage cheese while taking flaxseed oil supplements for 6-8 weeks.
