Hi...absolutely see the doctor and hopefully the doc will do stool sample testing and take a look-see.
One cannot say colon cancer doesn't happen in young people..it does, but in all honesty, those who I know it happened to had a genetic predispostion to it.
Keep us updated as to what the outcome is...even if it is hemmies.
