So sorry to hear about this concern. It is horribly sad to hear of your father passing away when you were so young, and it is certainly reasonable that you would also be concerned about the potential of also contracting a serious medical condition early in life. While there are many potential causes of the bleeding
that you have noted, it is important to discuss this with your doctor
. It is entirely appropriate for you to have close follow up with your doctor about your potential health problems, and if this is a new change, then this should be discussed with him or her. Now, the other side of the coin is that it is also important to not let these concerns dominate your life. If you visit with your doctor and you and he determine that all is well, it will be difficult to feel that you are well given the history of your father, but will be important for you to be able to lead a normal and high functioning life. Some people have a hard time with this, and your doctor should be able to help you by completing the testing that you need. Please speak with your doctor.
