4 doctors agree

In brief: Chronic abdom pain

Colon cancer is always a possibility.
But one should also keep in mind that there are many other conditions that can cause diarr/const, cramps/pain, etc. with his food difficulty it can be as simple as irritable bowel syndrome. I would really recommend that he go see his family doctor for a examination and possible referral for colonoscopy. That would clarify the concern and also open options

Some cancers are very slow growing and cause symptoms but don't metastasize aggressively
