Before I make an appointment with a doctor I would like to possibly get a little heads up so I dont faint in the office.

I think I might have colon cancer or something.

Here are my symptoms-

- Waking up with some abdominal pain followed by diarrhea or constipation, pain is immidiately relieved once i have the BM.
- Yesterday and today I have had some bright red blood in my stool.
- Sometimes I have pain AFTER making a BM. It seems like just bad gas because if I tap on my abdomin as if to burp a baby.. I burp..out of my **m lol (This has only happened 2-3 times, very rare)

At first I was just kind of not paying attention to the ab pain because I assumed I may have just been constipated, nothing to worry about. But the blood is concerning me...as it should be. The stools also seem to be a darker brown then usual, however they are NOT "black and tarry" looking with a foul smell.

I think I may have colon cancer because once in awhile (again, rarely) my BMs are a bit thin. Like 1 inch-1 and a half inches across, normally I take huge craps.
