Feeling of fullness in the colon????

In late August, I had some blood in my stool and I went to the doctor. They ran some blood tests to see if I had any blood disorders and also ran a Fecal Occult Blood Test. They never gave me results, so I assume there was nothing wrong with the tests. I mean, if it was serious, they would've made sure I knew about it.

Anyways, a few weeks ago, I had some discomfort around my anus area. It didn't really hurt, it was just uncomfortable. It lasted a few seconds and I stopped feeling the discomfort in about 2 weeks.

Now, I feel like there's something in my anus. Not like I have to go make a bowel movement, but like there's something there.

I'm really young (14 years old) and there's no family history of colon cancer. But I'm really scared about this. Now I'm freaking out again and I'm losing sleep over this. I'm absolutely terrified right now. Can someone please tell me if I need to go to the doctor again or an explanation of what this might be?

Re: Feeling of fullness in the colon????

Fullness in the colon? - I don't know, but red blood in a stool and and a bump feeling in your butt may be a swollen blood vessel caused by constipation and straining. A vessel can balloon up in the anal canal and feel quiet uncomfortable plus get weak and may leak blood due to more straining. This can sometimes occur from inside to outside and be felt by your hand. If constipated often:work on your diet. A colonoscopy would be in order if this persists.
