first how do you know you have a lump in your colon?
If a doctor said it was he/she a colon/rectal doctor? if he/she was ask the doctor
if you're guessing that you have lumps then go to a colon/rectal doctor now
I agree with gym on the question how do you know? Are you feeling a lump on the outside of your body ie) your abdomen where the colon is located underneath? If that's the case it's not a lump it is probably a hernia which is a ballooning in the intestines caused by a tear in the lining. Are you feeling a lump from inside the vaginal area? If so it is most likely stool being felt through the thin layer of skin between the vagina and rectum. If it is the possible hernia it needs to be checked and confirmed by cat scan. Any other cases needs to be checked by the doctor to ensure other causes such as tumors etc aren't present. Did this answer your question if not please supply move info as to what is meant? Tks and Have A Wonderful Night!
