Customer Question
second opinion] Hello, this morning...
second opinion] Hello, this morning I had a bowel movement and it was a very long thick stool and then on top it was a little mushy (like ice cream) and there was bright red blood on the surface. I have since had two bowel movements and each had streaks on the outside surface of the stool. My anus is also burning and itchy at times. I had a colonoscopy 2 years ago and everything was ok. I'm 30, male.

Your stool looks fairly normal meaning they can frequently look different from what you usually notice. Why did you have a colonoscopy at so young an age. The streaks of blood can be from some early hemrhoids or anal fissures or inflammation. It will probably clear and not be of concern.

Do you think it's from UC or Chron's? I'm a big hypochondriac!
Health Professional: Dr Ted Manos, Doctor (MD) replied 8 months ago
If your stools continue to concern you then you might need traditional evaluation. UC usually more loose and diarrhea and Crohn's more pain. Worrying about it can influence your colon function. Trust it's not what you considered.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
