My sister has been diagnosed with bowel cancer also a first cousin. I am also suffering from IBS which I can control by taking probiotics. My routine is normal BO first thing in the morning. Sometimes after I have eaten food half an hour afterwards I have abdominal cramps and loose stools max twice in a day. It is not very often and I do not have any trigger and cannot tell which is the offending food but I know left over food usually give me a tummy upsets. I am not a classic case of IBS but do suffer from some bowles problems. GP did usuall blood and faeces tests all neg. I also had bowel screening last year and it came neg for occult blood. Shall I be concerned as there is an change in my bowel habit and history of colon cancer in the family. I do not want to do unnecessay colonscopy procedure as I have got a lot going on with my health as it is!! Thanks
