Raquel's Stage 4 Colon Cancer Symptoms | Colorectal Cancer | The Patient Story


Raquel first noticed symptoms like pencil thin stools, pain, bloating, and blood in her stool. She then started getting full quickly after eating. But when she finally went to the doctor, she was dismissed and told "it was just anxiety." She then ended up in the emergency room and was later diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer, and it had spread to her liver, ovaries, and lungs.

In this cancer vlog, she aims to raise awareness about rising colorectal cancer rates in young people and the importance of listening to your body!
