QUESTION: Hi Dr, I'm a 34 year old female and I weigh 140. I've been having stomach cramps once a month that last 3 days and it worries me that it could be cancer. My grandma died in her thirties but don't know how, she pooped and blood was in her stool. I had got an mri on my back and it said that a mass was found in my colon accidently but my doctor said it was nothing maybe the shape of my colon. For many years I've had problems with constipation but I fixed it buy eating pineapples. But for two months now I've been having cramps that last for days and it comes back in a month. I saw a little blood on my toilet paper but I also have hemmoroids and my butt always itches. Could this be something serious? Would I know if I had colon cancer? Thank you so much. Martha

ANSWER: Dear Martha!

Please, relax because the chronic stress may promote many bad things including cancer.
You do not have typical symptoms of the colon cancer. Your abdominal cramps possible depend on hormonal changes or eating habits. Also, I may presume deficiency of the beneficial intestinal bacteria and consequent Candida-yeast overgrowth. Chronic constipation, hemorrhoid are also common unhealthy conditions.

If you are afraid of the colon cancer, the colonoscopy may rule out it and make you calm.
Go to and you will find many reasons for constipation.

If you are opened up to non-drug way to improve your digestive health, I may be beneficial for you. Or visit Biotherapy Clinic .

I wish you health.

QUESTION: Hi Dr, i I forgot to tell you that I always have the urge to go poop but can't go. Is that a serious problem?thanks

Hi Martha!
The urgency to go can be part of your situation: deficiency of the beneficial intestinal bacteria and consequent Candida-yeast overgrowth, chronic constipation, hemorrhoid. You have to focus on the entire GI tract health but not on the symptom.

Have good health.

I can answer all questions about digestive health, especially in focus on the non-drug, non-surgery treatment.
