Cancer: Colon Message Board

Cancer: Colon Board Index

I'm 17 years old, just turned it 4 days ago. I've been constipated going on 2 months now(Don't yell at me for not going to the doctor, I know what I've done wrong), the stool would usually have mucus on it. Recently, a few weeks ago, I had blood in my stool for the first time in a long time. It was hard getting that stool out, so I stopped worrying too much and passed it off as an anal fissure. The second time I had blood in my stool was about a week ago. That was also very difficult to get out, I strained, so I thought it was also anal fissure. Now, I looked in the toilet bowl a few days ago, and there was a bit darker blood on the stool. I started freaking out, because darker blood indicates bleeding from the colon, ergo, colon cancer. The first two times there was blood, it was fresher and was on the toilet paper, bright red. This time, no blood on toilet paper, but on stool. My diet is bad, and people have been saying bad diet causes colon cancer(I've had a terrible diet my whole life). I'm not fatigued, I haven't lost any weight, no anemia, etc. But I have a swollen abdomen that comes and goes, which I've come to believe is because of the constipation. Idk why I'm posting this, I'm just terrified that my life is going to end at 17. I'm seeing the doctor soon, so you don't need to tell me to do that.
