Suffering with blood in stool, pain in rectum. Rectum cancer?

Dear Doctor, I am suffering with the blood in the motion at the end. No pain in the rectum but at least 1 or 2 spoon of fresh blood is coming at the end. I am scared to visit doctor, thinking it may be cancer something. It started almost 7 to 8 months back, and was not there at all after 3 to 4 months when I was in UK (London) for my project work, Now after coming back to India again it is started. Now it is 2 months i am in India and daily I see the blood in motion at the end. My brother in law(my sisters husband who is doctor) also had the same symptoms and now he is suffering from Rectum cancer by last one year. So I scared to tell my problem to anybody in family. I am 32 year old married and working for software company. ( YYYY@YYYY ) my personal mail id. Please suggest me.

General Surgeon 's  Response

Thank you for the query.

Fresh, not mixed blood in stool is most often caused by hemorrhoids, so you should not be so scared. Especially that your work forces you to sit for many many hours. I suggest you to visit a surgeon and have rectal examination. Colonoscopy might be necessary, but only to definitely diagnose that this are only hemorrhoids.
To improve your symptoms, you should avoid constipations, increase fiber rich products and mineral water intake, avoid fatty foods and soft drinks. Physical activity should be also very helpful.
Sitz baths with Quercus Cortex and hemorrhoids suppositories should help as well. Such treated hemorrhoids should stop bleeding and partially disappear in a week or so.

Hope this will help.
