Brief Answer:
Yes please visit your doctor.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

Yes, you should see your doctor as soon as possible.
Your symptoms might be caused by partial bowels obstruction due to large intestine tumor.

Abdominal x-ray and ultrasound should be done at first. Colonoscopy should be scheduled.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
