    Sounds more like piles.  When piles bleed they produce bright red blood. Trust your doctor and your negative test results.  Your doctor would have referred you for a colonoscopy if he was concerned.  He hasn’t done this. Try losing weight and cooking from freah.  Cut out coke and other junk foods.  If you had colon cancer you would more likely to be losing weight unintentionally rather than being overweight.  Make sure you eat lots of fruit and fibre to make stools easy to pass.  This will help to prevent constipation and piles from excessive straining.  Ask your doctor for help with your health anxiety.

    Are you eating anything red that may not be digesting properly?

    Maybe do a colonoscopy to convince yourself that you don't have colon cancer. It will help you relax.

I know it's hard but try being positive about it instead of being so negative And if you need to get You're Colin checked To prove to yourself that you don't have: cancer then do it. But the problem with anxiety is that even if you do have

    It done and you don't have: cancer after that it will be something else. I believe if you see a doctor and get help with your anxiety all these other issues will go away. I will be praying for you and I believe that God will touch you and help you
