I have an oastomy from colon cancer in nov. I get cramps and have bowl movements that look like puss and smell bad. Run temp of 75 what is the cause?
That's not normal: The fever is the worrisome part. It is possible that you have a chronic abdominal infection from the surgery. An abscess may drain through the colon and out the ostony. That is why there is pus in the stool. That would be rare but only plausible explanation. Chronic colitis may cause this too but would be associated with abd pain too. Reccomend surgical consult and ct scan. ...Read more

The curse of the VUS: Personal and family history trumps genetic testing. If you have strong family history of breast/ovarian cancer, it could be that the vus is truly a deleterious mutation yet to be identified as such or have another gene involved besides brca. I would advise you see your gyn and a specialist with expertise in genetic testing/risk assessment. They will go over ways to reduce cancer risk for you. ...Read more

Grandmother died of colon cancer in her 70s. Granddaughter has had 3 clean colonoscopies in her 50 s. How often should I be screened?
Yes, over 50: Every one over 50 years should undergo colonoscopy. If there is a history of colon cancer in the family, it can be done earlier. The biggest discomfort is the bowel prep to get ready for test. If you don't want a colonoscopy, it can be done by ct scans and performing virtual colonoscopy. Early colon cancer usually begins as a polyp and is curable. Colonoscopy is generally repeated every 5 years. ...Read more
