Im a 15 year old and have Problems with my stool and thinking i have cancer

It started almost 2 years ago i had mucus in my stool. The month before it all started i kept worrying about school to the point i was depressed. now i have inconsistent stool sometimes hard pebbles other times loose and flat and i do sometimes see bright red blood on my toilet paper. I think it was also a mistake googling it because now i am worried about colon cancer

I wouldn't jump to colon cancer, although you do want to be seen by a doctor if you are seeing blood when you wipe.  It could be something like a hemorrhoid- but talk to your parents and just go get checked out.

Let us know how you are!
