Customer Question
month ago I had bloody...
A few months ago I had bright red blood when I wiped. A month ago I had bloody mucus on the stool when straining to pass a hard stool. I have not had blood since then but a small amount of white mucus on my stools almost every time I go. I am concerned about colorectal cancer though it is rare at my age. My bowel habits haven't changed significantly, no narrow stool or pain/fatigue. The doctor could not find external hemmroids. Is cancer a valid concern?

They go hand in hand

I would get a colonoscopy to be sure it is nothing else like inflammatory bowel disease

I don't think I have any other symptoms of IBS
Oncologist: DocPhilMD, Medical Doctor replied 14 days ago

You could check a CEA level.

that is a marker of colon cancer

if normal then you are ok

there are varying degrees of IBS

just mucous in the stool is seen in some people
