I'm a 29 years old male and about a year and 3 months ago I was diagnosed with IBS. They did blood tests, urine tests and ultrasound. I went there because I was having a lot of gas, diarrhea, abdominal pain and bloating, I also had a bit of blood in the toilet paper or toilet for going to the bathroom so often. They told me I had IBS and gave me some medicine (which I cant remember the name) and I felt better for months. Then a few months later it came back and its being going coming back and forth since then. Sometimes I feel really good for a few days or a week and then it comes back. I noticed that when I'm under a lot of stress the symptoms worsen, also when i eat junk food or spicy food. I also feel more discomfort and urge for a bowel movement after having lunch, this doesn't haven if I had a bowel movement recently. I'm really concerned that it could be colon cancer since its really annoying and I've tried everything to make it go away but nothing seems to work. I tried turmeric and IBS homeopathic capsules, and they help a bit but it eventually comes back. My main concern is that occasionally when I get a some fresh blood in the toilet paper or in the toilet, I believe it is due to hemorrhoids or fissures since most of those times I have pain for having so many bowel movements in a short period of time (diarrhea). I know I've been already diagnosed with IBS, but is there a chance that this could be colon cancer? Please help I'm really paranoid, I dont want to die.
