Colon cancer: US woman Jenna Scott thought warning signs were pregnancy symptoms

When US woman Jenna Scott was about seven months’ pregnant, she started experiencing worrisome symptoms.

Her symptoms included rectal bleeding, nausea and abdominal pain. Her doctor assured her that haemorrhoids and discomfort were just part of pregnancy.

When her symptoms didn’t go away after giving birth, she learned the shocking news: she had stage 4 colorectal cancer.

“I don’t understand how this happened to me and to someone my age,” Scott, now 34, of Norcross, Georgia, said.

Cancer wasn’t in my world.”
