Q: 

Is rectal fresh bleeding sign of colon cancer?

A: Rectal bleeding should always be checked out. Have you considered that it could be hemorrhoids? ETA: OKay, not hemorrhoids (but that is what it sounds like).

Hopefully, this will be nothing but you need to get the possibility of a GI bleed ruled out. That can be deadly. Good luck! I have a Thyroid problem too, if your tests are fine, it''s probably just an internal hemorrhoid....
