Bloody discharge can be due to the internal hemorrhoids.
However, since the hemorrhoid medication is not helping, further evaluation is necessary to rule out any precancerous lesion in the rectum and sigmoid colon.
Can you please advise what specific type examination is needed to evaluate?
a flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy should be considered.
Understood. Urgency? Leaving for Hawaii on Friday.
How long you have these symptoms?
Then you should consider this soon.
You can wait 2-3 weeks.
But better to schedule the test within that period.
Will do. Have only used Prep H externally which does help reduce swelling on visable hemroids. Could this be why it hasn't helped i.e., untreated internal hemroids?
Also you may have a rectal polyp
Ok, Had small polyps removed previously (8 yrs ago). Will schedule appt for after trip& apply P-H internally until then.
