Colon Cancer :: Small Amount Of Rectal Bleeding

Sep 29, 2013

For the past 4-5 weeks, every time I pass a stool, I have seen a small amount of red blood on the tissue paper. I'm only 19, so realise colon cancer is unlikely, but am still very worried about it. I've read it could be anal fissure but surely this should have healed by itself by now? I am hesitant to go to the doctors because of the nature of the problem. I know that's really stupid but if it can heal by itself i'd rather not got through the stress of going to my gp.

Sexual Health :: Hymen Broken After That Small Amount Of Bleeding?

I didn't have actual sexual intercourse with my bf, but he rubbed his area on my area, not inside. And it hurt and bled a little when we did this. He is sure that the sperm didn't fall on my vaginal area when he ejaculated.

I had period 5 days after that. But now I am almost 13 days late on my second period. My period is usually 5 to 7 days late most of the time.

Now is it possible that I might be pregnant? and could my hymen be broke after that small amount of bleeding? why could it possibly bleed? I am 22 years old.

Colon Cancer Or Just Hemorrhoids?

I am 25 years old and turn 26 in January. I am 179cm tall and weight around 65. I am wondering if my symptoms are Colon Cancer or is just a long therm Hemorrhoids. I got symptoms for Hemorrhoids when I was at early 19. Which was itching and not be able to sit still, small clumps which is symptoms for External Hemorrhoids. My doctor asked me to take a look at my anus at that time, but I am very shy and don't like others to peek at my private locations on my body so I told him not to. There was extremely little amount of blood(almost none) on the toilet papers. Sometimes there was blood and sometimes none, but the itching and irritation was always there and the pain around the anus.

I got Scheriproct suppositories and ointment which I used few times, but after one bowel movement when everything looks fine I usually quit using them and then after few weeks or months the symptoms returned. Itching and irritation, blood on stool following up. It got worse over the years and I never thought so much about it as I started to get used to it..

The blood was always fresh red and I was always in pain around anus after a bowel movement. Few times I lost so much blood that I got fever and ended up in bed. The last time I got fever, I decided to not just let it pass again so I started to search online for information and then came across about Colon Cancer and its symptoms.. I am still a person who is very shy and don't like others to take a look at my private locations on my body unless it is my girlfriend. I don't always get fever, happened few times, but there were still blood on my stools.. Dripping down and kinda like blood smeared on the poop and not mixed within the poop.

I still had prescription for two packs of Scheriproct suppositories and ointment, so I decided to use it again and see if it ceases the itching, bleeding and the irritation, and if the External Hemorrhoids vanished. I used them all and every symptoms were gone. And now after 6 weeks, less or more maybe. I got the symptoms again. This time with blood again, irritation and itching, but not so much as it used to.

I want to point out that I am not so active anymore, I used to play for a football team and was a very active person til age 19. At age 19 everything changed. I quit being active and got lazy after going into a relationship, started to drink alcohol at that age and started to party alot and drink a lot of alcohol at the parties.

Before I was symptom free my diet was terrible, I used to workout 3 to 4 times a week (3 years ago), it was very on and off with the workouts so I still had symptoms then, like itching, irritation and bleeding(fresh red blood). My stool used to always be hard and I went to the toilet few times a week (2/3 times a week). I also used to sit on the toilet for over a long time(which is not good at all because of the pressure it puts around the muscles of my anus). I used to work as a checkout employee on a supermarket where I sat for almost 8 hours.

Right before I got the symptoms again after I was done with Scheriproct, I had bowel movement almost everyday and my stool used to be soft. No pain or itching, no irritation and external hemorrhoids. No blood at all and the time I used on the toilet was reduced extreamly to finish my bowel movement in maximum 5 minutes (usually 2 to 3 minutes). Then the day came when I had not a bowel movement for 3 or 4 days after eating alot of Pizza and meat I went in to the toilet and pressed a little to get some poop out because I was afraid of having hard stool again, but after that day the symptoms returned.

Here is a list of the symptoms I got, symtoms I had and symptoms which I never had.

Symptoms I have(+) had(-), never had(x)

+ Itching (not so often as before)
+ Irritation (not so much as before)
+ Blood on toilet paper and poop (fresh red)
+ Sweet, but an awful scent from poop (Don't know the reason, maybe because of the blood coming in contact with the poop)
+ Clumps on anus (External Hemorrhoids)

(+/-) Hard Stool, not so hard as it used to be and sometimes not hard at all and normal(feels great).. Last bowel movement = Hard to begin with then got softer.

- Used to bleed a lot and get fever

x NO Black Poop
x NO Weight loss
x NO pain in the abdomen
(I can't think of any other symptoms at the moment that I had or never had, sorry)

I have recently changed my diet and started to workout properly(second session today). I eat more vegetable food and drink a lot of hot drinks and water. I also eat fruit and the result was my stool was still a little bit hard to begin with, did not struggle getting it out and there was blood again(not much, but with that sweet and awful scent), but it has only been 2 days since the other bowel movement when the symptoms returned so maybe it has not healed up yet and that my diet has not taken effect yet, after all I ate many non fiber rich food these last days before changing my diet!

I am truly sorry for an extremely long post, just wanted to lay out all of the details.

By the way I have a question: If I have Colon Cancer, would I always have blood on my stool when I first have it or will it cease to bleed sometimes? As I mentioned, I was symptom free with no blood after using Scheriproct suppositories and ointment and was symptom free 3 more weeks without Scheriproct.

I am planning on visiting my doctor and let him take a look. I even took pictures of my anus as it is now to show him incase I chicken out to show him.

Hemorrhoids Or Serious Like Colon Cancer

I have recently noticed blood in my stool (the last couple of time I have gone). I am freaking out! I am only 24 years old and generally follow a good diet and am not sure if this is something benign like Hemorrhoids or serious like Colon Cancer. Can somebody advice on how to distinguish between the different diseases? I am feeling fine and have no other symptoms for now.

Colon Cancer :: Stools Always Be Thin Or Flat?

I am really nervous. I am having my 1st routine colonoscopy on Tuesday (I'm 50 years old) and I'm really nervous.

Colon cancer does not run in my family.

My stools are in all shapes and sizes. (fat, thin, big, small, flat, round, balls and watery). Sorry to be gross. This morning, my stools were somewhat big but I noticed 1 was semi flat. Twice today after eating, I had diarrhea.

Can nervous make you have diarrhea?

With colon cancer, will the stools always be thin or flat? Sometimes I have healthy stools but other times, my stools are small and thin. Never blood. Sometimes, it's yellow but then it's back to brown.

I don't eat well and I certainly don't get enough fiber in my diet but if (hopefully) my colonoscopy comes back normal, I will eat more fruit and veg and exercise.

I don't have any pain but I know I have a sludge in my gallbladder but for the last few days, I've been having pain which I think is all in my head and my nerves.

Could somebody please let me know what you think. Could it all be my diet and nerves?

Menstruation :: Small Amount Of Bright Red Blood

I had unprotected sex December 5th & 6th, and according to a few period apps I'm about 2 days late - but Friday when my period would be expected I had some blood, enough to just wear one tampon a day and then Saturday and Sunday only a very small amount of bright red blood. I'm not sure if that sounds like spotting or my period, or if that's a sign of pregnancy? I'm not on birth control, a few days before my period was supposed to come I did start an antibiotic and a probiotic for strep throat.

Thyroid :: Small Amount Of Milk And Vitamin D Makes Me Ill

Drinking a small amount of milk or taking a small amount of vitamin D makes me feel very thirsty with a dry mouth, I urinate often and large amounts, feel dizzy with a fast pulse, headache,nausea, incredible weakness and I become very anxious, tingly, flushed and warm and I get very confused. It is extremely debilitating.

I am hypothyroid and I take 50 micrograms of thyroxine daily but my symptoms don't feel like hypothyroidism and my blood reading is euthyroid. (I had a subtotal thyroidectomy many years ago and I had a thyroid nodule removed some years later).. Does anyone know what these symptoms mean?

Bowel Disorders :: Wet Fart - Small Amount Of Blood?

I am a 28 year old male and have been having some stomach problems as of late. I have been to my doctor and let her know what has been going on and she thinks it is caused by anxiety. ( I have been diagnosed with GAD). My Bowels are very predictable, I go 2-3 times every morning and they are usually well formed then get softer as I go more. Then as the day goes on I will not have to have a BM but more feel like I have a big (for lack of a better term) wet fart coming on. Today I looked in the toilet after one of these times and saw a small amount of bright red blood. This scared the crap out of me so i have been trying to go again to see if it continued and it did same very small amount of blood that kind of looks like it is mucusy.   Has anyone ever had anything like this happen?? I do have a check up scheduled in early april. Should i wait or get in sooner? I feel like it could just be irritation because I have frequent BM. I am trying to keep a level head about this and not automatically think its bowel cancer of some kind.

Birth Control :: Small Amount Of Brown Blood On First Period

My girlfriend starting taking the pill one month ago. We had unprotected sex (condom broke) about 3 days before she went on the inactive pills. Now she is having her first period while on it but she is only having a small amount of brown blood (it is a constant flow). Is this normal because of the changes in hormones and it will become normal in a few days or is this implantation bleeding (a sign of pregnancy)? She is now on her second inactive pill.

Women Urinary Issues :: Dribbling Small Amount Urine About 15 Mins After Toilet

When i go pee i find everything is fine, i pull foreskin back to avoid urine getting trapped behind it as i have a long foreskin. Finish off and shake well just to make sure all the pee is out. but about 10 - 15 mins later i dribble a small amount of urine without realising, not enough to empty bladder just a small dribble, but it can be seen on underwear and very occasionally on clothing as a tiny patch. Also as i have a long foreskin it traps urine under it when i do this dribbling causing stale urine by the time i get home from work or being out and about. which as u can imagine is not nice and can smell a bit and cause soreness.

Hemorrhoids :: Chronic Rectal Bleeding

I am a 23 year old male.

I've been having periodic rectal bleeding for some time now, and I haven't gone to a doctor because I can't muster the courage to do so (I'm just too ashamed to present this problem to my doctor and family), and the amount of blood is small enough for me to be calm about it and my overall health is good.

So I decided to ask a question here before I go to a MD. Also, I informed myself on this issue from various sources on the Internet.

I first experienced rectal bleeding back in the summer of 2013. I was shocked initially, but then I regained my calmness, and on the next day there was no blood in my stool. Then I had another bloody stool a month after that, then it went away after 2-3 days.

So for 2 years, the rectal bleeding is periodically appearing then fading away. Each time the rectal bleeding occurs a few seconds after I pass the stool. So when I pass the stool, the feces are perfectly normal, not mixed in with blood or looking tarry. The way I understand it, that when I pass the stool, it somehow manages to hurt my anal area and causes a small wound, which explains why several drops of blood fall on the toilet several seconds after the stool passes and goes into the toilet bowl.

After doing some research online, I (in my humble opinion) suspect that I have hemorrhoids. Each time I experience rectal bleeding, it's only a small amount. 2-4 drops of blood, rarely more, unless in cases when I pass a hard stool. Sometimes I experience minor anal pain, which fades away in a few hours.

I don't match the symptoms of colon cancer, and if you leave out the rectal bleeding, my health is great. So it was something serious, I'd be in real trouble by now, right?

So right now, I have normal stools for 1-2 weeks, then I have one bloody stool for 1-2 days, then again followed by 1-2 weeks of normal stools. It's been like this for nearly one year out of the 2 years.

Also, I am an athlete, and I already eat a green vegetable with almost every meal - a cucumber, a piece of lettuce, cabbage, etc.

What can you tell me based on what I've told you? Have I took a serious risk to my health by ignoring this issue for so long?

Also, I am thinking of finally going to my doctor, but I wanted to ask online first. What should I expect of my doctors visit? What kinds of questions? What kinds of exams? Treatment options?

I understand that what I'm doing is really foolish, but the shame of going to the doctor and explaining this issue to my family greatly outweighs the fear I have of this issue. I hope you understand.

Hemorrhoids :: Small Lump And Cancer Scare

Dr has assured me that it is one pile but after a bowel cancer scare, I worry about anything abnormal! It is just inside my anus and no pain, itching or blood. The ointment has had no effect after 10 days or so. It could have been there for much longer, I just might not have noticed it. I did strain when I was able to have bowel movements again after the tumour was removed but usually they are quite soft. I think I panicked and overdid it in case there was another blockage. How long before they disappear? I am worried that it is not piles but the beginning of another cancer problem.  I just wish it would go away!

Premature Breast Cancer? Small, Painful Lump Found In Right Breast

I'm in my mid teens, and earlier on this evening, i noticed that my right breast slightly ached, so i checked it out myself and found a lump, which is not visible on the surface of the skin. The lump is located on the left hand side of the right breast, directly next to and underneath the nipple. The nipple on my left breast is flat, which i got checked out earlier in the year by my doctor. The lump inside my breast feels unmovable, possibly quite large, and aches even when its not touched.

I am also two weeks late for my period, which hasn't occurred before.

I need to get this checker out, however, beforehand, i would like some advice on whether or not it could be premature breast cancer, and whether or not it can be treated. I have also read up on the possible link between breast cancer and infertility.
