worried I have cancer

I have had some bleeding after loose bowel movements. It's only about a tablespoon size amount and will stop in a short time but it's after every bowel movement. Any ideas about what might be going on? This is the only thing going on, no pain or anything just bright red blood.

Re: worried I have cancer

I don't know what it is, but I do know that any bleeding certainly needs investigation! You cant wonder really, you have to know! It could well be hemoroids or diverticulitis, but you don't know it isn't cancer unless you have had it thoroughly investigated. Colon Cancer doesn't necessarily cause pain & discomfort Let us know how you go!

Re: worried I have cancer

Hi, arrange for a Colonoscopy. Bleeding from the Back passage needs to be investigated
It may not be serious but let the Dr decide that and a Colonoscopy is a simple procedure,
Get peace of mind everytime!!..
Good Luck, Solofelix.
