Cancer: Colon Board Index

I'm a 36you female (almost 37). About 6 weeks ago, I noticed blood streaked on my stools. When I wiped, it looked like a lot of blood on the tp. Naturally, I was very scared and pretty freaked out. I went to the bathroom a few more times that day, and there was blood on each stool, though I didn't see as much blood on the TP. I drink a lot of frappacinos (the Starbucks kind that you get at the grocery store). This is a milk product. Because I drink so much of it, I don't go to the bathroom like I should. I don't get "constipated", meaning I don't have hard little "balls" when I have a bm (sorry if TMI). I might go to the bathroom every 4 days or so. Sometimes, when I finally DO go to the bathroom, I'll go 2 or 3 times. It's like it all comes out in one day.

Anyway, I started taking Fiber Choice, and now I only see blood every once in a while. But, the fiber seems to be making my stools larger, which I don't like. This past friday, I went to the bathroom, and when I got up to flush the toilet, there was blood in the water. The entire toilet wasn't red, so I think it was probably just a few drops. After that, I took a warm bath, then inserted a suppository (prepH). Yesterday when I went, there was a little blood on the last stool (it's not DARK blood either - never has been), and there was some bright red blood on the TP, but not much. So again, I did the bath and prepH suppository thing.

I have an appt with my GP on wednesday and will do everything in my power to get a colonoscopy scheduled. I have no history of colon cancer in my family. My first cousin had some benign polyps removed when she was my age, or maybe a tad younger.

What are the chances of this being cancer? I know you guys cannot diagnose me, and I'm not asking you too. I'm just scared b/c I've read stories on here of people my age and younger having cc.

Also, once when I used a suppository, it stung like crazy! Upon insertion, it burned like I don't know what.

I also took a mirror and looked down there a few weeks ago. I don't really know what I was looking for since I've never really looked at this part of my body before. There are no external hemorrhoids. I sort of pulled my anus apart and then saw fresh blood. It wasn't much, but enough for me to know it was there. Could a hemorrhoid or fissure cause this? And would a hem or fissure cause me to feel a burning sensation when I insert a suppository? Like I said, the stinging sensation only happened once, and I've probably used 4 or 5 suppositories.

Any help would be appreciated. I'm really scared.
