My Particular Situation

I am a 20 y/o male, white, 6'0, 212 lbs, with 29% body fat. Lately ive started seeing little splotches of bright red blood on the paper after the 3rd or 4th wipe. Usually every other time I perform that function. Also, the waste has been narrower recently, although its been narrow for a long time. Pain is present in my stomach, it was intermittent at first but now its been continuous since last night. Could I have colon cancer? or indigestion coupled with a fissure? I'm going to the doctor in a few days.

Re: My Particular Situation

I think it would be highly unlikely for it to be cancer at your age, but it does happen to young people on occasions of course, so you are certainly doing the right thing by getting yourself checked out! It could be IBS or even an infection - but certainly it needs checking out! Good luck & let us know how you go!
