I am a 29 yr old female with four kids. Since July 2011 about once a mth had heavy retal bleeding with lower right stomach pain. Colon cancer is in my family. I went to er Nov.2011 just to have the doc say I was looking for pills. Dec17 I went to my PCP crying bc it hurt to walk drive and even pick my kids up. With a rectal exam she seen no hemroids but did test a finger tip with of stool to confirm my bloody stool. I finally got a referral for a Colonoscopy dated Jan18,2012. Guess what; he removed a 1inch polyp out of my rectum at the spot before it connects to your large intestents. I'm am in so much pain right now but the good news is if it had cancer in it IT is already removed. Point of Story Go have a colonoscopy bc polyps cause pain and bloody stool and just plain bleeding from the rectum. Btw the 1st er said I wasn't the right age to have colon cancer. Guess I showed them. Good luck hope u go to the doc soon!View Thread
