well there are a number of things that need to be ruled out here

important is colonoscopy at your age

if you cannot do a full colonoscopy then discuss with your doctor about doing a capsule endoscopy

in this a tiny camera like a medicine capsule is swallowed and this takes pictures inside thus fulfilling the objectives of a colonoscopy

other things to rule out are:

IBS or irritable bowel syndrome

Dr. P. Jyoti :

Inflammatory bowed disease like Crohn's and Ulcerative colitis

bacterial infection like C. Difficle

Parasites like shigella

Dr. P. Jyoti :

all these need to be ruled out
