    Curious about colon cancer development

    I was diagnosed with colon cancer last year. I had no signs of any illness until 8 months prior, when I was treated for sulfuric acid inhalation at work. I rode in a work truck for 8 days inhaling these fumes, which caused me and my coworker to become very sick. X-rays revealed contaminants in the lungs. I was given shots and several meds. As time passed, I began to get very weak and loss of appetite. 4 months later my blood count was at 6 and I had to get an emergency blood transfusion. I was given iron pills to take 3 times daily. A month after the transfusion my blood count was at 7.6 and should have been at 9. My doctor ordered an upper and lower gi and this is when they discovered the cancer. I have no family history of cancer. I'm very fit and try to eat healthy. I'm curious if the chemical exposure triggered the rapid growth. It was stage 3 colon cancer
