Red streaks in my stool
I'm 16 years old and a male, I have had read streaks on and off for about a week and I don't see any red in the toilet paper.
I didn't eat anything red either. To give a rough estimation, they don't not cover most of the stool. I just have a spot or two with a little red streak or.
The first time I saw it was exactly a week ago, it lasted for 2 days. Then for 4 days I haven't saw anything. Yesterday I noticed red streaks again and today as well, but it was much less. I'm really worried I have colon cancer. I lost a lot of sleep due to my worry as well. I told my parents about it.
They said my worrying is irrational, and that even if it's blood, colon cancer is highly unlikely. Deep down I kinda agree with them on some level, but I'm worried as hell.
The general color of my stool is brown, but it had some bright red streaks. Today they were a bit more darker. However, the amount of red streaks I have has reduced greatly from a week ago.
One thing I noticed though. Is that always when I have red streaks my stool is harder. That means if it's soft and full of liquid I never see any red, at least yet.
I can't go to the doctor unless my parents will take me. And they won't because they find it very comical that I'm worried of something like that.
What do you think it is? And what should I do?
