In brief: Depend of location

Women and men are equally affected by colon cancer.
The symptoms depend of the localization of the tumor in the right or the left colon. Family history is important. The right colon cancer can grows without symptoms, it presents with asthenia, weakness and when checked anemia will be present, in the left side cancer presents with progressive const.Ipation. Colonoscopy at 50 y.O find curable cancer.

In brief: Often are none

Early colon cancer often has no signs or symptoms.
As growth occurs, tumors can bleed causing blood in the stool and often signs of anemia such as weakness. They can also cause partial or complete bowel obstruction giving cramps abdominal pain and abdominal bloating. To find early colon cancers, it is very important that everyone has a screening colonoscopy by age 50 and every 5 to 10 years.
