Rectal Cancer Symptoms - Some possible symptoms of rectal cancer include the following: a change in bowel habits, bloody stools, abdominal discomfort (e.g., bloating, frequent gas pains), diarrhea, constipation, stools that are narrower than usual, unexplained weight loss, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and developing polyps (growths of tissue that develop in the lining of the rectum). Colorectal cancer screening can help find and remove precancerous polyps (adenoma) or early stage rectal cancer. Because these symptoms could resemble conditions other than rectal cancer, it is important to consult with a medical professional for an accurate diagnosis.
