    please help, scared of colon cancer!!!

    Hi. I'm 21 years old, and last year around this time i started having pretty heavy red bleeding after my bowel movements. It started out as pink on my toilet paper and then gradually became worse. This lasted for a month and then disappeared for about a year until now. It came back back in July and this time it seems worse. Some days it is worse than others. The blood is bright red and never mixed in with my stool, mostly just comes out at the end of a bowel movement, and my toilet paper wipe is mostly blood, sometimes blood and stool, but sometimes there may be some blood on the top of the very end of my stool. There is no pain associated with it, and my bowel movements have never really been normal, every once in awhile i will have diarrhea-like stools, but the color is normal, so i can't tell if they have really changed or not, but here in the last week or two i've been going at least once, maybe twice a day, when i used to maybe go every 2 or 3 days. I have bloating/gas but not constantly, so i find that to be normal. I know this is young to be thinking about colon cancer, but my dad just passed away a year ago with colon cancer and he was only 51. I also can't wait to go, if i have the feeling that i need to then i have to go to the bathroom immediately. And it seems like every time i eat i have to go to the bathroom in the next 2 hours. Someone please give me some advice! i made a doctor appointment at a GI specialist on september 15, but i just can't wait until then, has this happened to anyone? thanks for the help!
