    Hello, I'm new here

    Hi, good day everyone. I would just like to ask about some of the symptoms.

    I had bleeding or blood in my stool but since I have (huge) hemorrhoids, it's understandable.

    I wanna know the other symptoms/effects of hemorrhoids as compared with colorectal cancer. I'm only 26, and I don't think I'm old enough to have CC, can someone help me out here?

    And also, what are the other possible diseases that you have (aside from colorectal cancer) if you have these symptoms:

    thin stools
    feeling of not being able to empty the bowel completely
    feeling of bowel being obstructed

    Hello there. You are very young. Search on this website about
    symptoms of hemorrhoids to compare. If you want to be safe
    then get a doctors app. describe what u feel and just follow
    instructions. You will be fine.
    Best wishes.
