Cancer: Colon Message Board

Cancer: Colon Board Index

I am a 21 year old female. I have been diagnosed with Anxiety disorder.

Ever since I can remember I have had trouble with constipation. Over the past 2 years, if I strain really hard to go I have red blood on the toilet paper. I have been to the doctor several times about this and they did a hemocult which was negative. I don't have any stomach pains and very seldom have diarrehea (sp?).

I am starting to worry I have cancer though. My grandma was diagnosed with colon cancer @ age 50. I have also had my iron level checked and it was normal. My stool never looks tarry or black, it just looks like there is some blood in the water and on the toilet paper. The only pain I have is like a soreness around my anus from the pushing I have to do to have a bowel movement.

Also, one of the times I went to the doctor they said I had an anal tear... Just thought I would mention that.

Please help! Any advice would be appreciated!!
