Is bleeding in stools signs of cancer?
Bleeding in the stools can be a sign of cancer and should be referred to a doctor. Most bleeding in stools is not cancer. Most cases are swollen hemorrhoid veins leaking, or excess roughage in the diet irritating the colon. Often blood in the stool occurs with overuse of aspirin or ibuprofen. Prolonged vomiting spells, pregnancy, etc., can also cause this. This is also a symptom for very bad ulcers. It can be a symptom of liver damage from alcohol abuse. A doctor visit is called for.

What kind of cancer is it called if it's on your vagina?
Vaginal cancer is a rare cancer that occurs in your vagina - the muscular tube that connects your uterus with your outer genitals. Vaginal cancer most commonly occurs in the cells that line the surface of your vagina. Cancer that begins in your vagina (primary vaginal cancer) is very rare. Women with early-stage vaginal cancer have the best chance for a cure. Vaginal cancer that spreads beyond the vagina is much more difficult to treat. Cervical cancer is cancer of the cervix, a small structure at the top of the vagina and base of the uterus.
What are the symotoms of cervical cancer?
The early stages of cervical cancer may be completely hidden (you have no obvious symptoms). but some people have vaginal bleeding, contact bleeding or (rarely) a vaginal mass may indicate the presence of malignancy. Also, moderate pain during sexual intercourse and vaginal discharge may be symptoms of cervical cancer. In advanced disease, lumps of cancer may be present in the abdomen, lungs or elsewhere. Symptoms of advanced cervical cancer may include: loss of appetite, weight loss, fatigue, pelvic pain, back pain, leg pain, single swollen leg, heavy bleeding from the vagina, leaking of urine or faeces from the vagina, and bone fractures. If you are worried you may have cervical cancer it is important for you to go and see a qualified medical practitioner (a doctor) as soon as possible. Treated early it is curable but if left it may be fatal.

What causes a sore in a womb?
The most common cause of pain in the womb is pelvic inflammatory disease, an infection of a woman's pelvic organs including the womb. If you or someone you know has pain in the uterus, a PID exam is recommended to rule out more serious causes of the pain such as womb cancer. However, the most common symptom of womb cancer is vaginal bleeding, with pain being less common. Still, better safe than sorry.
You took a pregnancy test it was positive but you starting bleeding is it possible?
If you know for sure that you are pregnant, it is probably not going to be your period, although some women have experienced a "first" period then learns a couple of weeks later that they really are pregnant. It is possible that it could be implantation bleeding caused by the fertilized egg to attach itself to the uterine wall. Or it could be a cervical change that can cause vaginal bleeding. Vaginal bleeding can also be a symptom of ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. Another cause for bleeding during pregnancy is a miscarriage although the first two reasons for bleeding are more common, it is still a good idea to contact your doctor as soon as you can. On rare occasions you can encounter a false positive due to improper testing, expired pregnancy tests, rare medical conditions such as certain types of cancer, evaporation lines or a chemical pregnancy.
