A member asked:

Had colonoscopy 6 months ago was diagnosed with diverticulosis otherwise no cancer or polyps the last 2 days i have had red to maroon color and small particles of food in stools could i have colon cancer or anal cancer after only 6 months of test?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Unlikely: If the colonoscopy was done with proper colon preparation you are unlikely to have colon cancer. You are more likely to have developed hemorrhoids, but it would still be prudent to see your doctor as even hemorrhoids can cause enough blood loss to result in anemia.
