Does colon cancer cause lower back pain?

Thanks for asking! I agree plus many causes of low backache and colon cancer can do it too.
Unlikely. Most early stage colon cancers cause no symptoms at all. Very advanced colon cancers can grow and invade nearby structures, potentially causing pain. Colon cancer can also spread to the bones, which may cause back pain. However, back pain is a common symptom, and the vast majority of patients who are experiencing back pain do not have any cancer. See your doctor if you are concerned.

Constipation. Relationship between the muscles and nerves that control back & bladder functions and those that control bowel movements can cause this. Bladder and the colon are close together in the body. Large amounts of stool in the colon can put pressure on the bladder which can cause the bladder to not fill as much as it should, or cause the bladder to contract when the bladder is not supposed to contract.
