IBS-D means no increased risk of colon cancer.Copying my post from the other thread you started.
I'm assuming you meant IBS-D not that you have ulcerative colitis and if you have an IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) not IBS (and I assume you do not) the blood is usually from the Inflammation, not cancer.While cancers do tend to leak, there are many many many many other much more likely things this is, and I agree with your doctor it is probably internal hemorrhoids as most everyone has them, and IBS really will get them to bleed every so often. Some people with IBD are at increase risk of cancer, BUT usually you miss the small amount of occult blood from all the very obvious bloody diarrhea when it isn't well controlled.Virtually NO ONE under 50 has colon cancer.Doesn't matter if you have IBS or not.If you have any sort of anal irritation or eat even a bit too much iron (food or supplement) you can have a false positive on the blood in stool test.Lots of people with IBS have internal hemorrhoids that will bleed from all the stool issues. That is like 99.9999% more likely to be why there is a trace of blood in the stool than cancer if you are under 50 and there isn't a family polyp disease (1/2 your relatives have colon cancer before 50).Do you have a lot of issues with anxiety/health anxiety? Are you getting treated for that?http://www.ibsgroup.org/forums/index.php?s...=116634&hl=
