Colon Cancer Fear
« on: March 11, 2014, 12:56:45 PM »
Hi everyone,

Warning: TMI

It has been a while since i've been on here. Truth is, I had been having a really awesome anxiety free couple of months until my birthday when I pooped bright blood. There was a tiny bit in the toilet and ALOT on the toilet paper. IT has happened to me before so I just assumed it was hemorrhoids but now my butt hurts after every bowel movement and on a few occasions, I have had episodes with blood in the toilet and TP. Today I noticed bright red blood on the outside of my stool. The actual stool looked brown, but there was some bright red blood on the outside and none on the toilet paper when I wiped. I have absolutely no stomach pain, just pain and itchiness on the outside of my bum. I am so embarrassed and really terrified. I'm going to the gastro today.

I'm on 29 but my friends sister died of colon cancer at like 25!

You DO NOT have bowel cancer and I am sure that your doctor told you the same. Bright red blood on stool or paper, pain and itching are classic symptoms of hemmoroids. And while they are painful and annoying - they are treatable and not serious at all.
It could also be anal fissure but my bet is that you just have good old hemmis!

Sounds like hemorrhoids.  They can bleed a little, bleed a lot.
