In brief: It should be done..
Intermittent hemorrhoidal bleeding is common and not concerning, but in his case with swollen lymph nodes it is concerning.
Ulcerative colitis/proctitis/crohn's disease, and some infections can cause such symptom. Cancer is rare in 23 y/o, but he should be checked by his doc..Encourgae him to see his doc for an evaluation. Good luck.
