Early Signs of Colon Cancer

Alaska Digestive and Liver Disease Center is proud to have four seasoned and leading gastroenterology/internist doctors who believe that prevention is the best option for possible colon cancer. Patients can accomplish prevention through periodic colon screening for cancer.

In addition, we have two offices to serve residents in Anchorage, Wasilla, Palmer & Mat-Su Valley, AK, and surrounding areas.

Warning Signs 

The warning signs for cancer of the colon can be absent or at the most subtle. Our four board-certified, licensed, and skilled doctors serve the residents of Anchorage, Wasilla, Palmer & Mat-Su Valley, AK want to give you a clean bill of health.

No warning signs of impending colon cancer make periodic colonoscopies much more critical. Unfortunately, it is not until cancer progresses that you may notice some symptoms.

  • Extended constipation
  • Extended diarrhea
  • Full feeling in your colon after a bowel movement
  • Blood in the stool
  • Abnormally fatigued
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloated feeling
  • Anxious
  • Depression

If you notice any of these signs, never assume you have cancer, as you may have other colon issues. Our esteemed doctors can correctly diagnose your symptoms and devise a treatment plan.

A colonoscopy puts your mind at peace and is a form of cancer prevention that everyone needs to take advantage of as soon as possible.
