5. Rectal Bleeding:
Seeing blood along with your stool is not the best of signs, and it’s understandable why it terrifies many people. While the cause could be as simple as an anal fissure or a hemorrhoid, don’t always be so sure. Life may not throw the easy path your way, and colon cancer is a very real danger for many. Bright red blood indicates an active bleeding somewhere up the rectum. So even if there is the possibility of it being nothing, there is also the chance of a tumor on the edge of your colon. Only your doctor can clarify this, so take a trip and ensure your safety.
