I am 21 yrs old and in remission with colon cancer. When I was 3 months pregnant, my son, put pressure on the polyp and caused severe bleeding. Thats when they found the cancer. I chose to wait until my son was born and then have the surgery. (the doctors tried to do the surgery when I was 6mnths pregnant but couldn't)Went back to surgery and found out it had spread into the lymph nodes (1 of 4). I took 8 mnths of chemo with 5fu and leukavorin, no radiation. Only has been 8 months since chemo but looking good. If it does come back, I think I will try a clinical trial! Is there anyone who knows anybody with the same situation or was as young as I was.
