Blood in stool? Colourblind.

Hi,

I'm 26 male in the UK and have a problem.

I have two tender swollen lymph nodes in my right groin which are really worrying me. Then recently I read that it could mean a cancer in the lower region of the body. Also just that day I was reading about colour blindness and came across a story that someone had blood in their stool and didn't notice until it was too late as he couldn't see the colour.

I'm having this problem. I really want to check but it's almost impossible to tell if there's blood or not.

I live alone so don't have anyone I can ask really. What can I do?

Thanks

Re: Blood in stool? Colourblind.

Go to your general doctor and ask them to do a stool sample. That will determine if there is blood.
