This morning I had a bowel movement that was about 12 inches long. Is this a sign of colon cancer?
If blood in the stool is red, it may be from a hemorrhoid. This needs to be evaluated and treated, but is fairly common.

Seek evaluation by a qualified professional asap to differentiat. ...Read more
