Weight Loss

This is a symptom that is often linked with stomach and bowel problems. When combined with other symptoms, weight loss often requires investigation.

Solitary weight loss as a stand alone symptom may be explained by many things. Some diagnoses may be serious while others may not.

Blood tests and scans are useful and your family doctor should help to guide initial tests and make a referral to the appropriate speciality.
