Thanks for your query and welcome to HCM
Anything that increases your chance of getting a disease is called a risk factor. Having a risk factor does not mean that you will get cancer; not having risk factors doesn’t mean that you will not get cancer
Possible signs of rectal cancer include a change in bowel habits or blood in the stool
Anal itching is the irritation of the skin at the exit of the rectum, known as the anus, accompanied by the desire to scratch. Although itching may be a reaction to chemicals in the stool, it often implies that there is inflammation of the anal area
Protein in urine called proteinurea and it should be evaluated by physician to rule out any underline disease. it may be normal after protein rich diet.
Take care
