Colon cancer?

Hello, at this time it has been 3 years of having progressively significant symptoms, at first I started with fatigue and then within 6 months I had the symptoms of a stroke and was emitted in the hospital for 5 days without a definitive answer as to why it happened. I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs so all that was automatically out the window. 6 Months after that I started noticing myself becoming really fatigued just walking around. I'm stubborn so I keep working and doing heavy labor, then the bleeding from my rectal area started, at first it was little blotches on the TP, and then turning the entire bowl red as if I had lost lots of blood. My primary had given me some probiotics and still the same thing, it would go away for a few weeks and then the bleeding would come back. I went to the emergency room and the doctor there told me I had cluster hemorrhoids, so I go get some over the counter cream. The fatigue would not leave me for anything so I go see a rheumatologist that told me I have fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. I take my meds on time all the time but still the same thing with the fatigue, then I had done some fasting appointments with my primary and was told I am vitamin D deficient and for the rest of my life I would have to take 2000 units of vitamin D every day which I have been doing thus far. The bleeding is getting worse and no I seem to be having these small lumps under my skin starting to develop around different parts of my body. I am petrified to go to the GI just to hear that I only have so long to live. Any advice?

I forgot to mention that my blood pressure stays within the stage 2 hypertension stage without taking BP medicine. I have kept myself healthy and didn't mention I am very muscular, I am 6' 1" and way 260 Lbs but only have little chub lol. I'm just trying to give all the info I can about this.
