Hi. About 6 months ago I noticed a small bump like object in my lower rectum. I just ignored it because I'm a tad embarassed to get it checked out and find out it's nothing. In the past few months I've noticed mucus that is in my bowel movement and around my anus. In the past few days there has been a little bit of blood in the mucus. Has anybody have this happen to them before? Could it just be a hemroid? I'm worried about cancer but I'm only 18 and don't see how it could be colon cancer at such a young age.

I'm worried about cancer but I'm only 18 and don't see how it could be colon cancer at such a young age.i was 32 when i was diognosed with cola-rectal cancer,i had blood in my stools and my bowel movements were not normal ,so i voiced my concerns to my doctor who set me up for a colonoscopy,they found 5 large polyps 2 which were cancerous,i had them all removed ,went through a lot of surgeries ,but i am now doing good. if you have any concerns,get it checked out dont be imbarresed think about the alternative,it's better to be safe than sorry and as far as your age cancer dose'nt discriminate.good luck.
