I am a 60 year old woman, and I feel movement in my lower stomach like a baby. Could this be a sign of colon cancer?

In brief: Possibly

A partial blockage in your colon can cause the bowel behind to work harder to move the fecal stream along.
This extra activity may be what you're feeling. You should visit your doctor and have it checked out.
