I've seen blood in my stool once in awhile, no pain in my stomach. Should I have a lower gi? Could I have colon cancer at 27 years old?

In brief: Don't jump to cancer

There are other causes for blood in stool, so don't worry yet about cancer.
See your doctor for an exam and stool sample to diagnose the probable source/reason for the blood. Probabilities of cancer at different ages can be factually accurate but can be worthless for an individual case. If you are getting wet, it's not useful to talk about the.
