8 years ago my mom died of colon cancer. She was 54. I am 44 and last week had an undiagnosed abdominal pain trip to the ER. They ordered a CT and said I had "fluid" in my abdomen that would "reabsorb" but could find nothing wrong. They did find a lower love lesion on my liver. I go for an ultrasound on my liver next Tuesday. Should I be worried about colon cancer?
