colon cancer?

I am 32 yr old female with metastatic cutaneous melanoma.  For the past month I feel very bloaded, my belly area feels sore, cramping, narrow stools, and today I saw some type of white mucous in my stools.  My belly is big, it looks like if I am 4 or 5 months pregnant.  I have been reading for colon cancer symptoms and I am thinking that the melanoma has spread.   However I have not lost any weight, do not feel nauseaous, have not vomited, do not feel weak, my apetite is the same as before and I have another symptom that I haven't seen listed for colon cancer.  I feel like if I had something inside my stomach(like water) and if I move I feel it move too.  Does anyone know what this might be?

hi, you really should follow up your last diagnosis with your gp to find out how far advanced it is.many benign tumours are full of protein and can swell to very large sizes, also you might just have a large cysts in your abdomen, nevertheless i would recommend you see your gp asap,

Thank you for your comment.  I did go see my oncologist and he send me for a cat scan.  I had that done Friday and I am hoping that it is something else and not the melanoma.
