I recommend that you see your doctor about this even if you do not agree to have a colonoscopy....
If certain infections then it may be very likely that you would benefit from an antibiotic course
I think stool sent for cultures / leukocytes / ova and parasites and C.diff toxin should be done ...
You may have blood work such as a CBC ( complete blood count)
An abdominal CT scan might be considered for you
I hope that this information is helpful for you
Let me know if you have further questions or concerns or discussion
I will be happy to get back with you
If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback
Thank you and Best Regards ,

I stepped away a few minutes...
No my first guess would NOT be cancer...
It sounds MORE LIKELY to be some intestinal infection ...
I suspect that getting treatment will probably clear it up for you....
You are very welcome. I hope that you feel better soon!
Do get attention to the matter and I think that you will benefit from a course of antibiotics I think.
Best Regards ***** *****!
