Cancer And Blood In The Stool
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body.

Possibly: While other diseases can cause low white blood cell counts, the possibility of cancer in the bone marrow is always raised when this is seen.

Does having inflamed hemorrhoids a sign of cancer a little blood when wipe get frequently very painful to have a bm? What are some treatments for them
Evaluation: You should see gastroenterology for evaluation and treatment.
Could be.: But not likely at your age unless you have first degree relatives with colon cancer. If the blood is bright red and at the end of the stool or only coating the stool (vice incorporated into the stool) this is likely due to hemorrhoid. Dark red blood, sticky blood or blood in the stool are some reasons to have further evaluation.
Burning pain when defecating, feels more intense after BM with occasional blood after hard stool. Is this a sign of cancer?
Having irregular periods. Bleeding time to time for two weeks but not fully and colour of blood is different. Is that sign of cancer?
I've had a blood test at a&e due to a broken nose they said I have a low white blood count and my mate said it's a sign of cancer as I ain't been ill.
Constipation and difficulty passing stool. Strained. Mild anal soreness. Bright red blood and for 1st time toilet water pink. Is this sign of cancer??
Unlikely!: What is your appetite? Have a check up especially for thyroid disease and GI issues (parasitic infestations?)
Not necessarily: We know most often we can identify a significant medical treatment, illness or psychosocial stressor as a trigger. Cancer is known to be a trigger but though we all have seen patients who had shingles and then soon after were diagnosed with cancer, most with shingles don't get a cancer diagnosis in the following months.
Probably not: It's probably just what you described... A boil. If it is a boil, it should resolve on its own with some warm compresses. If it doesn't get better in a week, it's time to have a health provider take a look. A boil should be on your skin on the fleshy part of your rump, not right on the opening of your anus. If it is on the opening of your anus, it might be a hemorrhoid. Don't be shy!
