I am 16 years old. Everyday when i use the restroom i bleed and the pain of my stool is outragous. My family has no history of cancer. Ithurts alot and i need it to stop. its been occuring for atleast 5 months now. Help me.
Colon cancer generally occurs at agte 40-50+. It is extremely rare for it to be found in someone aged 16. However, rectal bleeding is never normal and should always be medically investigated - so do seek advice from your doctor. Could the pain be caused by constpiated motions stretching the anus? Maybe a high fibre diet and drinking ~ 2 litres of water per day will help modify your motions so that their passage is less painful.
Could be a fisher (sp?) which is a tear in the wall and requires surgery to fix. These are extremely painful and can bleed a lot. You could also have an internal roid that has flared up. Either way, you need to see your doctor right away as you are way too young to be having that kind of pain...
