Could it be colon cancer?

Dear all,
I have experienced bad gas - mostly at night, once I go to bed - for almost a month. Have been treated for amoeba. Once stopped treatment (which seemed to have worked straight away) I have started experience diarrhea, very bad gas and - when I press - pain at the lower left quadrant of the abdomen. I have done a test again after three days from the end of the treatment. The amoeba seems to be gone. I am a 41 years old female.

Seems so disturbing. Have you tried to consult a doctor? Based on the symptoms that you have shared, it is an alert call for you to seek a physician's advice.
