hi everyone

i was wondering if anyone has any information on rectal bleeding and more specifically passing rectal blood clots. I am extremely frightened by the amount of bleeding and passing blood clots rectally. I am constantly tired and have various stomach complaints. I am a mom of 3 children the youngest 3 yrs old. My family history includes a grandfather with colon cancer and hemmoriods (aunts etc...) I should book an appointment with my doctor but Iam too scared ......

I suggest you call your doctor and have it checked out.  It may be nothing serious but if it were something it would be better to find out early in the game.  The earlier the better.  Not trying to scare you, but my husband had bleeding, etc. and dismissed it as hemmoroids well it wasn't and he just finished his first round of chemo and radiation.  I had been on him for months to go to the dr. but fear kept him from going.  Hopefully everything will come out good.  But please don't put it off, play on the cautious side.
