    That's not the best thing to post. It essentially states that bright red blood can be a sign of cancer, and CRC often doesn't show symptoms until it's severe. Hardly reassuring.

    Re: Somebody please help me make sense .. convinced got bowel cancer

    To be honest symptoms of both are so similar 😩 Iíve had my tummy check and have had rectal exam and no issue there Iím not going to the toilet that often i remember before my health anxiety kicked in I used to go Atleast once or twice and not itís probs 3 or 4 so nothing dramatic there. No blood that I noticed, In the past few weeks Iíve had a anal fissure and and anal skin tag so I do get a lot of discomfort in the anal area but however has gone a lot better. Colofac and lansprozole have sorted the pain out ... the only issue I have and is bothering me is the consistency of my stools.
    Iím just thinking either the doctor thinks Iím too young or they putting all my symptoms down to HA or IBS and I have a fear theyíve missed something vital

    Reputable sites say it can be a symptom of bowel cancer though so the article wasn't false in that respect.

    Iíve got an appointment with doctors next Tuesday letís see what she says .. il sure sheís only going to reiterate what Iíve been told previously. Iíve not lost any weight which is a positive I guess and no black stools or anything like that. Consistency of my bowels are not diaorrhea like either they maybe loose but not a mush.
    Would you think itís appropriate to take a few pictures of my bowel movements to show to the doctor so she knows what I mean or is it too much

    I'm sure just a description would suffice.

    I'm sure you wouldn't post a link to a dodgy site. We need to post facts as well as "reassurance"

    You have all the symptoms as me, incouding the anal fissure and the anal tag. My anal fissure keeps opening up every now and then tho.

    I have done quite a few tests except colonoscopy (and I hope I don't have to do one ever), and both my GP and the specialist didn't think that there is anything wrong.

    They have a complete workbook. I suggest you download it and print it.

    And yes, flat or thin stools don't mean cancer. Flat or thin can result from IBS. With IBS I have had all types of stools.
