Hey, guys! I am hoping someone here might be able to put my mind at ease. I'm 28, male, and for a while now I have been suffering from this dull ache in my lower left pelvic area. Now, I am currently awaiting word to attend hospital for a colonoscopy (not a full one, though, just a partial one... I forget its name, it's called, like... a sigmoidoscopy?) because a stool sample showed slight traces of blood. Now, doctors say I have no cause for concern, as I am too young to be at risk, the blood is bright red, and my blood tests are strong (my doctor said, usually, anyone with any kind of colon cancer lose so much blood they're borderline anaemic) and I am not losing weight. So, I am not too frightened, but this discomfort in my lower left pelvis is starting to get annoying. I notice it most when I am sitting upright, but here's the funny thing... if I lay flat on the ground, and actually lay on my left side, meaning the left hand side of my body is pressed to the floor, I hardly feel any discomfort at all.
Does anyone have any idea at all what this may be? I appreciate any information that can be given to me.
