Q. I am 47 years old. There is no history of colorectal cancer in my family. However, this morning, I found traces of blood in my stool. Could I have colorectal cancer?
A. Blood in your stool does not necessarily mean that you have colorectal cancer. There are other conditions that can result in blood in your stool, as well. It is necessary that you see your doctor so that a correct diagnosis can be made.
