I have noticed light blood after using the bathroom in the past. Lately, I`ve realized that it only happens after taking a dump. Doesn`t hurt, I have a normal diet, and I drink lots of water. Today, after wiping I noticed a lot more blood on the paper than usual. It was bright red and there was a lot of it. This isn`t the first time either. Also, I`m 17.
Colon cancer, (actually a few cancers) run in my family. I`m scared that this may be what I have. I`ll be going to the doctors Monday, I`d just like a few different possibilities before I worry too much.
**Also, I don`t believe it`s a hemorrhoid. I`ve looked into it.
