Hi sorry for the reason you are here. Here is my story.
Many years age, my mother ended up in the ER, serious stomach pain with lots of bleeding. Glad your DH is getting scoped, that will give a true diagnose, anything else is just a speculation.
Anyway that being said, my mom was scoped, no cancer, not even one polyp, just a bad case of diverticulitis.
Me, I didn't really have any symptom. I had hemorrhoids, PCP confirmed I had bleeding hemorrhoids, he saw them. I had NO pain what so ever. He ran every test that should have been a red flag for colon cancer, all came back negative or normal. When all was said & done, my PCP figured those bleeding hemorrhoids were going to be my excuse for getting my baseline early. I was a rectal cancer, stage IIIC. Sometimes cancer is a very silent killer.
Does colon cancer run in his family? Parents, grandparents, aunts, or uncles? Again, it is best to get this checked out, butt during the mean time, try not to worry. Please let us know the out come.
For constipation, maybe increase liquid intake.
