Exclamation What could this be?


I have experienced minor chronic lower abdominal pain over the last couple of months. The number of times I need to empty my bowel have increased over the last couple of months, as of now I need to do number two around 3-4 times a day, and it seems like I can never empty my bowel.

Just recently, I have experienced some narrowing of the stool. I also saw a small bump, about 5 mm in width, purple redish near the opening of my anus. It is slightly painful if I put pressure on it.

Could this be colon cancer? Now I'm only 21, male, otherwise healthy.

I am queuing up to see a doctor, but not until next thursday.

Thanks for reading! Any feedback is appreciated

Re: What could this be?

You said you have been going to the bathroom a lot, so that could be causing hemorrhoids (internal or external) Nasty things they are. Going 3 to 4 times a day is pretty normal (if only I can go that much). Feeling like you canít empty your bowl is one of the symptoms of IBS and so is stomach pain.
