Bowel Cancer Recurring?
My partner had a bowel cancer operation last May. Now he has a lot of blood in his stool. He was told the whole cancer had been cut out as it was small. Could it have grown again in only 8 months or could the blood be something else. He is 82 years old.
It is possible and he should see a physician to be appropriately evaluated.
