That is pretty alarming. How old are you? Have you told your doctor that you have blood in your stools? The symptoms you describe are a lot like the ones I had, and it turned out to be a stage 3 tumor.
Blood in the stool is never normal. You should ask your doctor and if you get vague answers, insist on colonoscopy just to be safe.
i had thin/ flat stools was constipated and a numb feeling down below , went to DRs who done an internal straight away and discovered a lump in rectum which turned out to be rectal cancer , after a colonoscopy also found a cancerous polip in bowel which was removed in january this year , ANY CHANGE IN YOUR BOWEL MOVEMENTS MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR GP STRAIGHT AWAY , also check for blood in stools another good indication , wish you all the best
