I recently had a CT scan in the emergency room, due to excruciating stomach pain and passing blood with my stool. I am a 45-year-old woman, could this be colon cancer?

Colon cancer rarely presents with that kind of acute pain. Sounds more like diverticulitis. Obviously you need to follow up with with a family or internal medicine doctor; the emergency room only ensures that you don't need more acute care. There should be paperwork from your visit with a clue as to their diagnosis, if you can read it. Best wishes.
