    22 and scared

    Hi, i am new to the forum.
    for the past couple of months i have been experiencing blood in my stool on-off. In the last bowel movement i had i saw a bright red-streaked mucus like jelly at the end of my movement. At times, the stool will sometimes coat with blood towards the end of movement (mainly when the poop is bigger, sorry for the graphic talk). I also sometimes experience itchiness but randomly and i have chunks of red in my stool aswell. I have no idea if these chunks are blood or food because they are like pieces similar to chili flakes mixed in with the stool, is this likely due to it being chunky pieces or blood chunks (if that is even possible?)
    always suffered from constipation and have been taking psylium husk helping me with regular softer stools. I have not have any other symptoms except mild blood streaks. I have also been suffering from reoccuring ovarian cysts from 18 years old i am now 22. I cannot take the pill due to vomiting. I guessed that maybe the stool blood/ovarian cyst is related but i am skeptical because from what i have researched m.d doctors say no. my cyst is currently 4.5cm. i am unsure of whether the blood has been there for longer than noticed a few months ago. I saw a specialist who has referred me to do a flexible sigmoidoscopy. He said it sounded like internal hemorrhoids and once you get them you need them treated otherwise the bleeding doesnt stop. he said it is unlikely bowel cancer because of my age and because its rare which i know is not impossible.

    I am really scared i have bowel cancer because i know some people diagnosed only have blood and nothing else. I know i should not be self diagnosing but i am in a total emotional wreck.

    Thankyou and i hope i can get reassurance and guidance

    It really sounds like hemmroids to me. Being that the blood is bright red, that means that it is blood from near the end of your colon, and probably your anus since you said there is itching also. The red pieces you describe are probably food, things like tomato skins do not get digested fully. It is a good idea to get checked to be sure, but I think you will be fine.
