Prostate Cancer

Bowel Cancer Recurring?

03/04/2003

Question:

My partner had a bowel cancer operation last May. Now he has a lot of blood in his stool. He was told the whole cancer had been cut out as it was small. Could it have grown again in only 8 months or could the blood be something else. He is 82 years old.

Answer:

It is possible and he should see a physician to be appropriately evaluated.
