Post sporadic symptoms, please advise!

I am a 28-year-old female, am a bit concerned that I might have colon cancer symptoms, and would LOVE some advice. For the last three months, my bowel movements have been irregular - basically never firm, with intermittent diarrhea. There was bright-ish blood in my stool only once two months ago, and I began noticing pencil-thin stools shortly afterwards. Last week I became quite constipated, had a continuously growling stomach, really felt like something was blocking my bowels when I would attempt to have bm's. However, since then I've started taking probiotics, the constipation has gone away and my stools are much thicker and slightly more firm, though not quite back to normal. I still feel like there's incomplete evacuation and I'm far from regular. So my question is: do colon cancer symptoms ALWAYS get progressively worse, or could they go into remission for a while? Can they come and go? There is no history of colon cancer in my family. I haven't been to a doctor yet because I am waiting for my health insurance to kick in, which will still take about a month. In the meantime, I would be very, very grateful for any feedback from anyone who has ideas about this.
Thank you so much!
