Cancer: Colon Message Board


Cancer: Colon Board Index


I have been having blood and mucus in my stools off and on for several years. I've always been told I'm too young to have colon cancer. I'm finally instisting on it now, I just turned 29. I have the blood and mucus maybe three or four times a year randomly. It happens a lot after having diarrhea. I don't have diarrhea much, but sometimes when I do, that's when I get those symptoms. I'm very scared of it being colon cancer. My aunt died of it at the age of 38. Does this sound like colon cancer? I'm very scared. I have my colonoscopy this Friday, it couldn't come fast enough. I really don't have any other symptoms. What do you all think? Thank you.

Carisa,
It sounds like it could be hemorrhoids. I had the same symptoms and always after I had a bout of diarrhea. It turned out to be internal hemorrhoids. You're doing the right thing to have the colonoscopy; it will put your mind at ease. If you have colon cancer in the family it's good to get checked even in your 30s. good luck, and let us know how it turns out.
