Does chronic abdominal pain, new constipation, rectal bleeding (4 times in 3 months, bright red blood) and tiredness mean it's probably cancer? I'm 27

Does chronic abdominal pain, new constipation, rectal bleeding (4 times in 3 months, bright red blood) and tiredness mean it's probably cancer? I'm 27

Take fiber laxative like Metamucil and drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. It is very unlikely that you have cancer. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
