Do i have colon cancer?

T9999
T9999

Its been maybe one year i have digestive issues. (Difficulty to let out the stool, cramps bloating and gaz) i have very often constipation, and diarrhea.. I went to my doctor and he told me to take FORLAX that is a laxative to help let out my stool more easily. Its been now one month i’m taking forlax and i’m able to pass to the toilet more often but i still have this feeling that i still have poop when i get out the toilet without being able to let it out.

Another thing is that i still encounter difficulty to poop and my stool comes out very narrow and thin.

I’m 16years old but i’m very worried to have colon cancer.

Check out the image i uploaded that shows some parts of the narrow stool.

Do you have any of the signs eg flu longer than 4 weeks, sudden unexplained weight loss ect by what you have written it sounds more like a very big case of irritable bowl syndrome and might be a Idea to reduce your fiber as fiber can cause alot of problems for some people I am in my 5th year of my recovery stage and I have to cut out fiber also my doctor found it by the constant back pain again something you have not put in your question .

Talk to your doctor about IBS symptoms and treatment but sounds like that's all it is also try lowering your fiber see if this helps but you would know if you had cancer as it's worse than what you have discribed .

Winters it’s, I am curious as to why you asked if the T9999 had flu symptoms for more than four weeks as I have along with cramps, sometimes loose and sometimes constipation and recently sore feeling with mucus’s blood after diarrhoea, not sure if this was food poisoning though a couple of days ago and tiny blood spots today, I have CT scan booked but so worried I have colon cancer.

Signs of flu for more than 4 weeks that doesn't go away can be a sign I had flu like symptoms for 6 months and I couldn't keep anything down but it took 2yrs and a move to find out I had Colon Cancer and was told I was showing the most common signs one being the flu that doesn't go away

Oh I’m probably right then, still like I have flu now although I get odd days when I feel better.

I have a CT scan next week.

How are you now?

Well I'm ok but I've only got 10% of my bowls left the going undiagnosed for 2yrs and the fight to win has left me with no gag reflex and we found out that chemotherapy don't work on me so every new risk I have to go under the knife and I have a new appointment coming up for possible surgery (again) because of the protocols you must follow trust me it's no fun
