New. Chrons disease 6 years. Afraid of Colon Cancer.

I have chrons disease and have had loose and water stools for about 5 years. Occasionally I'll see a very small bit of blood after I'm done silk g. Never on the stool or in the water. Recently I have had to episodes of pain in my lower left groin minutes before a solid bm ( which is then followed j Stanton by a soft/ watery BM. I'm worried I might have an obstruction. During these two episodes of cramp/pressure pain I had no bleeding and the stool Assad soft brown, as it always is. Normally my stools are loose and broken apart, sorta soft and look flat. Could this just be because they arnt formed enough to hold their shape coming out? If I had an obstruction would I hurt every time instead of these two episodes ? Perhaps just a log jam situation? Also with colon cancer would my bleeding be more pronounced instead of the twice a month pencil streak on my toilet paper? I get regular blood tests and they never show anemia, which would be indicative of invisible bleeding from he right colon. I think I might of read too much and scared myself. The GP and GI were not concerned with my bleeding or blood counts. I first noticed the pencil streak blood in Feb, idnassume is show signs of anemia by now if it were hidden

I'm 24. Chrons Disease in small intestine. No family history colon cancer but IBD is known in two immediate relatives.
