A colon mass can signify colon cancer, which can be a serious disease if left untreated. There are several signs that can help you detect a colon mass.
A colon mass may be benign, which is called a polyp, or it can be cancerous. A cancer of the colon is made or irregular growths of cells in the large intestine.
If untreated, colon cancer can spread to other organs and the prognosis if this occurs is not good--the condition could be incurable.
There are several signs that one may have a colon cancer mass including lethargy, tiredness, shortness of breath, changes to elimination of solid wastes, blood in the stools, weight changes and abdominal pain.
These symptoms may indicate other illnesses such as IBS, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease or other diseases of the bowels.
The best method of prevention for colon cancer is early detection of any polyps displaying signs of cancerous cells so they can be removed.
