    Blood in stools

    Hi all, as the title says, I have bright red coating of blood on my stools, also just before I pass a stool I get stabbing sharp pains in my abdomen.  I am going to the doctors tomorrow but I am worried that it might be bowel cancer.  Have anyone here had the same symptoms?  Thank you.
