I did a Let’s Get Checked “colon cancer” screening FIT test. My results were normal. I feel like the bright red blood was from straining during a BM since I only have had that symptoms a few times and then it stopped. Very small amount. My question is… should I keep worrying about colon cancer!? Or trust the fit test and just talk to my doctor.
I would generally say trust your doctor, but if you’re really worried about it, I suggest talking to your doctor about regular check ups. I had a colonoscopy for a different issue and they found a polyp with pre-cancerous cells. So I had another colonoscopy a year later. Nothing. I’d also suggest seeing a doctor about genetic testing for cancer genes.
