Cancer: Colon Board Index


RDFLA, thanks for your response. I would of course be happy to stick with the DX after the CT scan, but because a few of the symptoms (cramping, bloating and flat stool) don't match previous episodes of diverticulitis I remain concerned about other causes, including ulcerative colitis and colon cancer. The 2 episodes of diverticulitis were almost identical in terms of symptoms - fever, chills, backache, abdominal pain and nausea. The past three weeks of symptoms doesn't seem to exactly match diverticulitis.

In yours (or anyone else's on the board) opinion is a CT scan considered diagnostic enough to rule out cancer or ulcerative colitis?
