| | 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
