Symptom of colon cancer?

I just had a bowel movement and the stool looked normal light brownish.

But when I was wiping, two of the times I saw red/orange flakes on the toilet paper.....it wasn't much, but was really small and looked dry and solid.

I had a lot of tomatos and red peppers last night, could those be the cause? Cause I'm doubting it since I'm terrified.

By the way, I'm a 20 year old male with no family history of cancers

Thanks

Thanks for a bit of reassurance, I'll definitely visit the doctor if it happens again; can't take any chances with stuff like that.

and you got diagnosed at 21??? sorry to hear that...

Really? Diagnosed at 21? You mind if I ask you what symptoms you had?
