Colon Cancer?

Postby Washington » Wed Oct 11, 2017 3:45 am

Here's the thing. When I wipe myself Ive been finding bright red stains of blood. Very little though.

What worries me is that Ive never eaten a piece of fruit in my life!. Not an exaggeration. Ive also eaten very little vegetables.

There is no history of colon cancer in my family. Could eating no vegetables and stuff like that create problems at a young age?

Rectal bleeding is never normal and if it persists and/or you also have stomach pains you should be checked by your doctor. At your age it is most likely hemorrhoids or a fissure. Colon cancer in a 20 year old is very uncommon as only about 3% of all colon cancer occurs in patients under 40, but it is not unheard of. I just had a case today of a 26 year old male with colon cancer. Not eating any fruits or vegetables is very likely contributing to your problem. If you will not add these items to your diet at least consider a fiber supplement. Good luck.

DIET is a key factor

i would get a colonoscopy b.c. guess what early detection is the only prevention.

it could be a hemoroid

colon cancer symtoms include:

abdominal discomfort

Blood in the stool

changes in bowel habits

Its very unlikely that you have colon cancer. You probably have hemorrhoids? If the area starts to feel tender or itchy, then that's your problem.

If it persists, I'd get it checked out. Most of the time when there is blood in the stool you can't tell, so that fact that its there when you wipe means its probably the rhoids.

VIst your doctor as soon as possible. Tell him what color the blood is if its darker color you could be in deep trouble. you may want to get a cholenoscopy.

Totally erase from your mind the idea of cancer. This blood could be coming from a lump at or above the anus. This could be haemmorrhoids or some other innocent tumour. Y0u will have to show a doctor.
