Hello, im 18 years old and have blood and mucus when I go to the bathroom and most strange of all is my stool is a light clay colour I’m bloated and have abnormal amounts of gas, my bloods came back completely normal, no anemia and no inflammatory markers. My GP is not at all concerned it’s cancer she says I’m far to young, but due to my concern she’s sending me for a colonoscopy and an ultrasound. I feel awful posting about this but it’s keeping me up at night, my dad passed away from colorectal cancer back in 2019 and seeing what he went through terrifies me. do my symptoms match colon cancer?
