rectal bleeding- similar to pre diagnosis, scared

Hello All,

I am scheduled for a colonoscopy in 2 weeks... It will have been 3 years since my last. It is just a regular ole’ check up colonoscopy, but recently I have noticed bright red blood when wiping (sometimes), and blood along stool (sometimes). Obviously this is quite scary, since that is precisely what was happening pre diagnosis. I also have clear evidence of a hemorrhoid- burning, itching, etc. Because of that, I would love to assume that is the only cause of my bleeding, but I have a horrible feeling it isnt’t.
I had bleeding in also back in Dec. 2020, and my onc ordered a CT- which was normal. So that has been less than a year ago....Could a tumor have developed that quickly?
Is a ct a good test for that?
Has anyone had experience with a second colon tumor? Is that likely?
Has anyone had blood on toilet paper and stool that was JUST hemorroid?

I am glad I have my colonoscopy scheduled, but the fear I am experiencing is intense and 2 weeks feels like forever.

Absolutely. As far as I know it's pretty common. But waiting for scan results is terrible, so hang in there.

Having any type of bleeding is scary. *hugs* I'm sorry you're going through this and have to wait for a colonoscopy. I hope you get good results. *hugs*

It really is! Since that is how I knew something was wrong before diagnosis, the trauma response is so strong!
The strange thing is that it seems to only happen after a vigorous walk. Not sure what that means.
Thanks for your support D.E
