An individual affected by rhabdomyosarcoma in certain tissues located in and around the gastrointestinal tract may experience issues with bowel movements. The most common locations for rhabdomyosarcoma that produce symptoms related to bowel movements are on or around the bladder, testicles, prostate, vagina, and intestinal tract. Rhabdomyosarcoma that grows large and is in a location on a patient's bladder or any sexual pelvic organs may cause the bowel to become obstructed. A patient who develops a small rhabdomyosarcoma within their intestinal tract can also experience a bowel obstruction. 

Symptoms indicative of intestinal obstruction related to rhabdomyosarcoma include nausea, vomiting, constipation, crampy abdominal pain, appetite loss, and an inability to pass gas. Symptoms from rhabdomyosarcoma that develops in the abdomen or pelvis may also be very subtle and include changes in bowel movement frequency and stool consistency.
