It also hurts when i poo and it looks like there is nuts in my stool and i dont really eat nuts. Im going to the doctor on tuesday to check it out...im a 21 year old femal..am i to young??? am i being paranoid??
At 21 it would be extremely rare for you to have colon cancer. Your symptoms are very common with IBS. IBS affects about 25 million Americans, while colon cancer at your age affects a few hundred.
I would still go to your doctor and let them know whats going on. A good relationship with your doctor is always recommended, but I wouldnt have fears of colon cancer. Could be a hundred different and more likely things going on.
