Colon cancer is a cancer of the large intestine that impacts thousands of people on an annual basis. Typically, colon cancer does not begin as cancer at all. Instead, it begins as non-cancerous masses on one’s intestines. Over time, the masses become cancerous and cause a variety of problems that impact the health, safety, and wellbeing of the individual affected by the illness. Early detection of colon cancer is important as this will result in the most favorable treatment options and chances for recovery. If your colon cancer treatment was not prompt and effective, and you have sustained harm as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. The attorneys at Newland & Newland, LLP will be happy to assist you to help determine your rights to relief.
Importance of Second Opinions
If you or your loved one is experiencing any of the following symptoms, you could be suffering from colon cancer:
- Inability to pass bowel movements due to constipation
- Loosening of the stool related to diarrhea
- Abdominal cramping
- Unrelieved feelings after bowel movements
- Weakness or fatigue
- Bleeding in the stool
- Dark colored stool as a result of bleeding in the intestines
If you are experiencing any of these conditions, it may not be a cause for concern as many individuals have occasional minor intestinal issues. However, if your problems are persistent and you are experiencing multiple symptoms, they could be key indicators of colon cancer. If you feel like the medical attention you received has not been adequately provided, it is important to take your health into your own hands and seek a second opinion from another medical provider.
