Question: Hello, This is a wee bit upsetting but I just went to the bathroom and afterword I felt my colon
protrude at least two inches. Have you heard of such a thing? Am I grappling with potential colon cancer?

Brief Answer:
Further evaluation needed

Detailed Answer:
thanks for posting your query at HCM.

i understood your concern.

Did you suffer from pain or observed blood on the toilet paper?
do you have history of constipation?
do you strain while defecation?

most likely its "external hemorrhoids", NOT cancer. Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins around the anus or in the lower rectum.
Hemorrhoids are not dangerous or life threatening. Symptoms usually go away within a few days, and some people with hemorrhoids never have symptoms

its recommended to visit a Gastrointestinal surgeon or a gastroenterologist at the earliest. The doctor may examine anus and further course of action would be advised accordingly.

follow a fiber rich diet.
fruits, vegetables and whole grains are rich in fiber.
avoid fat-rich meal, junk food and oily food.
drink plenty of warm water.

hope to answer your concern.
further questions are welcomed.
wish you speedy recovery.
