Hello all, I cant believe I am now posting on a cancer forum for myself!
I have ulcerative colitis and have recently had a change in bowel habits and a new pain in my abdomen as well as itching, I went to the doctors yesterday and have had hemarhoids confirmed.
The doctor did pause on my stomach exam at a point which was quite tender and when I got home I felt this point myself and can feel a very small lump under the skin, obviously I have read all the internet horror stories but due to having ulcerative colitis I am more likely to get bowel cancer than most, this has scared the living hell out of me. I do have an appointment for a flexible sigmoidoscopy in about two weeks to check on my ulcerative colitis and I am going to mention the lump and pain. What do you guys think?
I am only 32 and had my mum pass away less than two years ago to lung cancer, I dont want to go out like that, I'm really scared of the possibility of cancer but can only wait for the results of the sigmoidoscopy.
Any advice is more than welcome.
