Worrying Symptoms Bowel Cancer Concern
Hi there for the last 4 weeks I have been experiencing bleeding when going to the loo, bowel related. It is dark red in movement and on paper. I had a colonoscopy 5 years ago which was completely clear, no polyps. Last year I had constant runs and I mentioned it to gp and he told me as I had a clear colonoscopy 4 years previously no need to do one again, are polyps the only sign that bowel cancer could develop?

Gordie. Some years ago I had a colonoscopy after rectal bleeding. I had polyps, which were removed. Some years later I again had rectal bleeding, this time it turned out to be internal piles. I have recently been experiencing bleeding again. Not in the least bothered by it TBH. Just waiting to see if it carries on then I will see the Doc. There are other symptoms to bowel cancer than just bleeding.
