Extreme anemia, pale stool with mucus always diaherra that's thin . Pelvic pain . When passing normal stool it's hard and i bleed.. Colon cancer?

Not likely: It is very unlikely that you have colon cancer. But if you have anemia and bleed on passing stool, you must see your doctor for an evaluation. It may be as simple as taking a fiber laxative to soften the stool and taking iron supplement to correct iron deficiency. However, that can only be determined after examining you and it has to be done in person by your doctor. ...Read more

Stomach flu?: You may be having a viral gastroenteritis in your locale. 2-3 stools/day are not enough to get dehydrated; so, just treat your symptoms, drink plenty fluids, eat foods that are well-tolerated, use good hand-washing hygiene, and allow a few more days for it to clear. If not improved in another week, then get back to us or see a clinician locally. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Have you been given that diagnosis? ...Read more

Yes: Endometriosis involving the recto-vaginal area certainly can cause those symptoms. A careful examination by your gyn should be able to determine if this problem is present. Fortunately minimally invasive surgery can cure the problem in most cases. Make sure your gyn is an expert in laparoscopic procedures of this type so you can avoid a large abdominal incision. ...Read more
