    OK this really is not the place post your problems as it a reference sticky, you should start a thread in the worried forum as you haven't been diagnosed as yet but as you know UC does increase your chance of CRC. that's a medical fact.
    I do suggest you post the same as I say in the Worried you may have forum. Then our members can clearly see and make suitable replies.

    Folks,

    Especially us guys who tend to be so macho -

    Never, never, NEVER ignore blood in your stools. I did, and if you've read thru my other thread you know how that went for me.

    If something seems 'just not right', it should be looked at by a professional.

    Blessings,

    Dennis
