It is imperative that you get a colonoscopy to rule out cancer. You cannot rule it out with just a physical abdominal exam. While you don't have all the symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease, that, too, can only be completely ruled out with a colonoscopy. I'm assuming that a rectal exam was done and a stool guaiac done to see if you had any occult blood in your stool.Bowel
