Because your colon becomes inflamed, this means that water can’t be properly absorbed, making your stool watery.
Other common symptom is an urgency to get to the loo.
Feeling like you need the toilet even when you don’t can also be a tell-tale sign of the condition.
Symptoms like diarrhoea, blood in the stool and cramps are also linked to colon cancer.
That’s why it’s important to speak to your GP if symptoms like these are troubling you.
