recently I realized I have to strain hard when I'm having bowel movement. Like something blocked my rectum.and I'd alway had bowel movement once every 2 days Until last month I found myself using bathroom once or twice a day. I dont know if its a form of change of bowel habits or not. My stools became narrow than usual but not pencil thin.Occasionally noticed one or two bright red spots in my stools.(more like a red lump that formed together.) My anus has a constant sticky and something is there feeling. No abdominal pain at all or any other symptoms.
I went to GI last week,and he said I just had a minor hemorrhoid which I shouldn't be concerned, and dismissed my fear of colon cancer cuz of my age. He prescribed me some ointment but didn't work, I noticed a red spot in my stool this morning after I apply the ointment last night.
I'm SUPER concerned right now that I might have colon cancer. Should I get a colonoscopy just to be sure?
My fear has escalated to a degree that I can't live a normal life. Pls help me!
