In brief: Ulcerated stoma

hello. you have a colostomy stoma and the presumed reason for that is colon cancer.
You are 74y and now present with ulceration and some bleeding. DELAY IS VERY UNWISE. This must be treated as if it were colon cancer, and surgically removed asap and histology to confirm either benign or malignant with appropriate follow up thanks
