I've had IBS symptoms for 4 years now? I just recently found out that colon cancer has the same symptoms. Could I possibly have colon cancer?

No. Unless it runs in the family, it's very rare to see colon cancer in your age group. Colorectal cancers are a group of cancers that don't increase in incidence until after the age of 50, which is when we recommend routine screening to begin. In hereditary types of colon cancer, we do see colon cancer occur before the age of 50 and screening begins earlier: http://bit.ly/2nexSdl Hope this helps. Read more...
