what are the chances of an MRI missing colon or anal cancer in an abdominal scan
Welcome to Justanswer website.
Myself Dr Josh and I’m happy to help with your question today.

I have thoroughly read your MRI report, and there is nothing to panic for colon or anal cancer.
Your report is absolutely fine and no need to take stress for serious issue.

The chances of MRI missing a colon or anal cancer are very slim. No need to take stress.

Some of the common symptoms with colo-rectal cancer are-

-A change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea, constipation, or narrowing of the stool, that lasts for more than a few days
-A feeling that you need to have a bowel movement that is not relieved by doing so
-Rectal bleeding
-Cramping or abdominal (belly) pain
-Weakness and fatigue
-Unintended weight loss.

Though may similar symptoms may be found in inflammatory bowel disease.
To remain on safe side,and for peace of mind you can get colonoscopy and further biopsy done.
