Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
I am a retina specialist.
I would be happy to review your scan
But, in truth, I agree: If you have bear tracks then a colonoscopy would be a good idea.
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
I take blood pressure medication
Here is the scan that they took.
Thank you for the picture.
Yup. Those are bear tracks.
The medical name for these is Congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigmented epithelium or, for short, CHRPE.
And, yes, you should get evaluated by a GI doctor.
Does this make sense to you?

yeah it does, please give me diagnosis code for this so I can let my primary doctor know, cause I doubt they even know.
The ICD10 code is H35.52
Although is not something that your primary care MD would deal with or ever code in her practice.
