Colon cancer and burst appendix
Is there any link between a burst appendix and colon cancer. I had a ruptured appendix in Aug 17 and sepsis following that - I was very ill for months but recovered by Dec 17/Jan 18 and then in July 18 I was diagonsed with Bowel cancer in the ascending colon and had emergency surgery to remove a tumour in my ascending colon (the area just above where the appendix used to be). I was just wondering if this has happened to anyone else or could there be a connection? It seems very likely to me.
I have no family history of colon cancer and non of the risk factors so I wonder if the burst appendix started something in the colon.
