Pain and severe discomfort in the lower abdomen and rectal area. Partner had colon cancer. Concerned

I am having severe pain and discomfort in my very lower abdomen/female parts and also in my very lower rectal area. I have had a husband that passed from colon cancer and many female friends that have met their demise with ovarian/uterine/and other female oriented afflictions. I have experienced this pain on and off for over a month now. I would appreciate your input very much. Thank you.

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your querry.
This is nonspecific symptoms and I cant tell you anything without more info. It can be nothing and anything. rectal cancer can be ruled out by simple digitorectal exam or rectoscopy. If you notice blood in stool and lost weight it should worry you. The same is with ovarian and pelvic disorders. Ultrasounds is at least what you should do.It is good that you are caotius but cancer isnt the first thing to think of. It can just make you anxious. Most common causes of your symptoms are benign and wilk pass by itself or with simple therapy. WIsh you good health.
