Have right upper abdominal pain, nausea. Sever constipation. Blood in stool. Family history of cancer. Advice?

I have been experiencing rt upper abdominal pain with some left mid abdominal pain with occasional nausea for about 3months. I usually have BM's about once every 4-8 days. I thought this pain was my gallbladder but my last BM was thin and had maroon blood streaks in it. But what scared me was all of the water was maroon as well. I am a 42 yr old African American woman with history of breast CA on mom's side. Should I wait two weeks and see what happens...even though I am still experiencing the abdominal pain?

Hi and welcome to HCM. I dont think this is an emergency if it last so long. It sounds to me like stomach or gallbladder tissue. YOu should do abdominal ultrasound and endoscopy to check this out especaily if pain is aggravated after meal. Blood in stool in your age usually is caused by some benign disorders such as hemorrhoids, fisuraes,polyps and andgiosysplasie. Cancer is the last thing to think of.
As I said it really looks like gastritis/GERD or billiary colics and you should investigate these 2 first.
Wish you good health.
