In brief: Not Ca

Blood and changes in bowel habit may be early signs of colon Ca but if not progressive and when scans and a 5 year interval pass and there is no signs of metastatic tumor then we are dealing with an inflammatory bowel process that should have been identified by colonoscopy and bx.
