Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and am ready to help.
yes, you should get it checked with a colonoscopy asap
is it bleeding?
it could be cancer
it could be just a polyp or a hemerrhoid
but only a biopsy can tell
do you have any questions?
Thank you. It is not bleeding. I first noticed it last Sunday. I will get it checked asap.
