Okay, guys. I'm pretty much over the colon cancer phobia. But I'm wondering now...Is pink blood consistent with hemorrhoids, or would that tend to suggest GI bleeding? It's kind of pinkish-brownish, smeared with mucus. Just a tad on the toilet paper and/or floating in the water-- even when I haven't just pooped. It's like it's oozing.I do have horrible hemmies and I'm in the midst of a flare-up. I usually see red blood.
