Understandable: Being nervous as a colon cancer survivor and in the presence of unexplained symptoms is absolutely normal. There are definitely many conditions other than cancer that can account for your symptoms. With your history and given unexplained weight loss, cancer in general remains high on the list and will have to be ruled out. Trust your docs and stay positive.
