Bone pain around pelvis, hips, arms, weakness, blood in stools. Cancer signs?

Hi I have recently been having a lot of pain in my bones specifically pelvis hips and arms and leg areas and also weakness in body. I think I may have some sort of cancer as many symptoms seem to match and have been to see the doctor as I have been fairly constipated and been having blood when passing bowels in the toilet colour is reddy bloody colour the doctor says its piles ( hemorrhoids ) and don t worry but I feel that it may be something else as I have been prone to many of the symptoms of prostrate cancer. Please I need some advise I am 19 years old and has been occuring for a while first time the bleeding came was roughly may time.

I have studied your case

As per your symptoms there is possibility of malabsorption syndrome which can be confirmed by fine aspiration cytology [FNAC].
I will advise to check your B 12 and Liver function test via blood.

As you are losing your weight there is possibility of malignancy so I will advise you to do PET scan to detect any abnormality in early stage if your FNAC comes normal.

Take proper treatment of piles.

Till time continue your medication.
