    Angry Colon Cancer ? Or Nothkng ?

    Hi there

    My name is Josh I'm 17and for the past 2 weeks I have had bowel troubles , constipation , loose stools, abdominal pain , Lower back pain , gas pain , I can't say I have been eating the same but it's not someyhing I haven't had before. I had one episode of blood on my stool is wasn't much and just thought it was just a strain

    My grandmother had bowel cancer and I guess I'm worried , the only time other than tonight that I could move my bowels was with a laxative . I have been using Metamucil and using my fibre , I drink plenty of water and eat a clean strict nutritious diet .

    I want to take a ct scan or something. ? Am I over reacting ? My mum and dad think so, but I say this can strike at any age for any person

    Hi Josh,
    Colon Cancer at your age is very unlikely.
    I would say it could be any one of two things. (1) IBS (2) H.Pylori
    You should see your Dr who will most likely send you for an Endoscopy/Colonoscopy to see what is causing this.
    I have IBS and Gastritis myself and your symptoms match both of these but to know for sure a Dr would need to see you and you would need the above tests,

    Solofelix.
