Hi there 

I live in Scotland and every 2 years you are sent a bowel screening kit. I got one after my 52nd Birthday in January. I returned it straight away and a week later I was given the all clear. The last 4 weeks I have had left sided cramping pain a rush to go to the loo and quite a lot of blood on the paper after. Not the kind of blood you cut your finger. I have been feeling dizzy and light headed. I guess what I am wondering is 2 things. Could it be impossible to have got bowel cancer so quickly 5 months after an all clear, could they have missed it.

See your GP. 

could be, or could be piles, anal fissures or other causes. See your GP about this one.

agree - see GP

Nothing is impossible so there is a small chance it may get missed, but in my inexpert opinion  things like piles or fissures are more likely.

As advised above, get it checked out for peace of mind.
