I was diagnosed with lymphocytic colitis 18 years ago. I have had rectal bleeding for the last 3 years which was diagnosed as piles. The last 3 weeks the bleeding has worsened. 3 days ago after a bowel movement, I was only passing blood. The blood can either be bright or dark red. I was told to go the emergency room. The did a sigmoidoscopy where they found inflammation and I have been booked in for a colonoscopy. I am on Pentasa and fivasa fir the last 3 days. First 2 days ok and today I have lots of blood loss and 3 narrow stools. My symptoms are: explosive bloody diarrhea, urgency, sometimes only blood coming out, pain. I am worried this could be cancer.

Colonoscopy with rectal biopsies in case if inflammation is noticed ( to confirm or rule out presence of ulcerative colitis). Colonoscopy will also help rule out other causes like diverticulosis or malignancy.
I think you must get colono scopy and if require biopsy and m.r.i abdomen and blood for c.b.c and for c.e.a then consult through Lybrate or on mobile for further management thanks.
