Unhappy I don't know whats wrong with me...

Today i found blood in my faeces... Ive never seen it before... It was like having my period, but through my butt... but it wasnt like HEAPS of it or anything. i then looked it up through a search and found out that it could be an idication of bowel cancer. HUH!!!! but im only 19 though...! it said that there is higher risk of bowel cancer when you age, predominantly in the 50's. but im only NINETEEN! if anyone could answer what is wrong with me it would be very much appreciated. i sure hope its something else....

Re: I don't know whats wrong with me...

You may have a hemorrhoid or a fissure!!
But any time you have rectal bleeding it needs to be checked out by a Doctor---

It could just be hemarroids or a fissure. It is rare in young people but can still happen. Anytime you there is blood, it should be checked out by the doctor.

A hemorrhoid is like a vein that has lost it's elastisity and readily bleeds and a fissure is a crack or tear in your anus.

Both can be caused by constipation!!

Thumbs up Re: I don't know whats wrong with me...

mine first happend to me when I was 16. but if it is an anal fissures you will most likely have to have surgery, it could also be hemeroids that are getting infected. don't be embaraced go see a doctor and take it from there.

good luck

Ike,
There are many things that cause a person to get hemorrhoids. Prolong standing,sitting on cold concrete, heavy lifting, constipation to name a few!!

I think you need to get it checked out by a Doctor and get a diagnosis!!!

I wish you well---

Re: I don't know whats wrong with me...

I THINK THAT IT MAY BE ANAL FISSURES..I THINK THAT IS WHAT I HAVE CAUSE i AM 19 AS WELL AND EXPERIENCING THE SAME THING AND I WAS CONSTIPATED AND WAS ALSO WORRIED LIKE HELL ABOUT CANCER BUT I LOOKED IT UP AND IT SAID THAT IT IS UNCOMMON IN TEENS. ALSO, THE SYMPTOMS THAT I EXPERIENCE SUCH AS THE ONES THAT YOU ARE DESCRIBING ARE SIGNS OF ANAL FISSURES. MY BLEEDING STARTED AFTER SOME INTIMATE ANAL ACTIVITY. IT STARTED AND PRECISE FOR LIKE 5-7 DAYS AND THEN STOPED. THEN STARTED AGAIN WHEN I WAS INTIMATE WITH MY MAN AGAIN AND IT IS BLEEDING AGAIN..SO DONT WORRY!! BUT I DO SUGGEST THAT U STILL GO TO SEE A DOCTOR TO BE SAFE. BYE
