Good afternoon. It is known that the diagnosis of bowel cancer is complicated by the fact that the symptoms are similar to other diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Bleeding from the anus is a symptom that accompanies bowel cancer in 90% of patients. At the same time, the same symptom can be with hemorrhoids, for example.
In this case, it is important to pay attention to the color of the blood, with bowel cancer, blood appears before and during the act of defecation along with feces, the blood is dark in color ... If this symptom is found, it is necessary to consult a doctor urgently in order to make an accurate diagnosis and prescribe the appropriate treatment, since the tumor can also appear at a young age, including 16 years.

Do not engage in subtle self-diagnostics. To with bowel cancer
it was "bleeding" in a manner obvious to the naked eye, and so that
at 16, and even so
everything else would be so normal that the person thought about the only "symptom" - the combination of these three extremely unlikely events is unlikely in the third degree.
See a proctologist. Rather a crack.
I'm afraid I won't have time to do anything in my life. I never thought before, but now I'm very worried.
