Your symptoms of Colon Cancer

Forgive me if this is tmi but I've been having problems with bleeding and a horrible burning pain when having a bm. I am too afraid to go to the doctor because I really can't afford all the tests if it is possible that this could be something else. Can you please tell me what kind of symptoms you had with Colon Cancer? Does this kind of thing ever pass and it turns out it is not colon cancer?

Jules,

They recommend any time you are passing blood to get it checked out by a doctor. And it isn't always Cancer. You could have hemorrhoids. Schedule yourself an appointment immediately so you can find out what it is and get yourself treated.

I agree with Wendy that you need to get checked out asap. But honestly, it sounds more like hemorrhoids. If you aren't having gas, cramps or bowel changes, then you probably just need to get a prescription for hemorrhoids.
