A change in bowel habit

Is a change in bowel habit more worrying if accompanied by bleeding?

My Physician didn't seem too concerned about my issues surrounding my Bowel Movements. I rushed in to see him this morning.

I noticed that I was having looser stools than usual so I was quite concerned I discussed this with my Doctor who told me that it was probably due to my diet. But I have not changed my diet so this confused me slightly. He told me that Rectal Bleeding is the major symptom of Bowel Cancer and at my age (19) that it was very, very unlikely I was suffering from anything too serious.

If you are super concerned about this I would seek a second opinion. Did he do a rectum check? Always follow your instincts, go see another doctor. It can't hurt.
