Finally saw the doctor today, my symptoms of diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, mucus and blood in stool and exhaustion have been getting progressively worse over the last month. Finding a lump inside my rectum a couple of weeks ago prompted me to make an appointment. She said she found a "mass" when she did a rectal exam, but also said it could be muscle tissue. ive been given a 2 week referral. Im scared, and also worried as I'm meant to be working over the next couple of weeks. How long after an urgent referral do you hear about your appointment? Thanks for any help
