New here, new to everything related really.
So, I’m a 26 year old male, from UK. No previous health conditions and no family history of any bowel issues.
My issues started a month ago, I started noticing a change in my bowels I’d go as soon as I woke up and then again a few times again in morning. My stools also seemed to be flatter most of the time and at theat time I had blood on toilet paper. I immediately went to google and saw that colon cancer was what matched my symptoms. I immediately started to panic and ended up at the GP. Who arranged some blood tests, all of which came back clear! My stools however remained flat and have done this whole month. I will have the occasional formed stool though. In regards to the blood this stopped a while ago when I switched to toilet wipes.
I have occasional abdominal pains/cramps. I also have passed mucus with and without stool a few times (not very often though)
My Gp has prescribed me Sertraline and Mebervine for my anxiety and pain. They keep reiterating to me it’s NOT cancer and it’s IBS. Yet I’ve only had bloods done. So I am obviously a bit worried it could be cancer!
I also have a lot of gas, and frequent urination.
I don’t have weight loss, loss of appetite or bloody stools.
Any idea on what to do? What this is?
Any help please?
