As symptoms of colorectal cancer appear, they typically vary upon location and size. Learn to identify signs and symptoms early. Know when to seek help....
I am extremely embarrassed about this......I cannot remember the last time I went to the toilet properly. It's just blood, discharge & mucus.
The blood is bright red & there is lots of it. I 'go' approximately 6 times a day & the toilet bowel is always bright red from all the blood. I just get a sudden urge to go. There is not a solid stool. I wouldn't describe it as diarrhoa but more like a mucus. I havent a solid stool since this began approx 3months ago.
I gave birth (normal delivery) 4months ago.
I did have piles & rectal bleeding & discharge during pregnancy but not to this degree. I did visit my doctor then who prescribed anusol.
I eat a healthy well balanced diet with plenty of fibre.
There is no pain at all but the amount of blood scares me.
I had a colposcopy approx 4 years ago when suffering with horrendous abdominal pains but everything was normal.
I do not have any pain at all now though. I am 24 years old.
I cannot even break wind as I nearly always have to change my underwear after due to blood & discharge escaping.
Please help! Many thanks.

Stools that show signs of mucus or blood may indicate a medical problem. Bright red blood usually occurs from bleeding near the rectum.
Do you have difficult and painful bowel movements?
Do you feel pain, itching, burning, or throbbing in your anal area?
Do you still have pains resulting from abdominal cramping?

Hi-I am 33 yrs old with the exact same symptoms and lifestyle as you. I developed blood and mucus in my stool while pregnant, and a mini colonoscopy showed internal hemmrhoids. After giving birth tommy son 4 months ago, things got much worse. My symptoms are exactly like yours. I had bloodworm done last week but am waiting on results. Please tell me, what was your diagnosis? Thanks.

Mucus and blood often appear in the stool if the lining of the colon and rectum is damaged. That can be caused by inflammatory reaction like in case of ulcerative colitis (inflammatory bowel disease). If the damage is most severe in rectal area, one of the main symptom is frequent diarrhea.
Also, frequent bowel movements can provoke relapsed hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids when are inner don't cause pain, but are producing a lot of blood.

Have you lost your appetite?
Do you feel fatigue?
Have you noticed some skin lesions, too?

See your GP
I don't want to alarm you but I had similar symptoms last year and I had a malignant polyp in my bowel so I would really advise you to get this looked at. It may just be somthing like irritable bowel or internal hemmaroids but please get it looked at.

Thank u so much for the responses. I visited my doctor yesterday & apparently, from the last colposcopy that I had in 2004, I was diagnosed with colitis, but it was never treated, I wasnt aware of that it was colitis & there is no reason noted down as to why I have it, eg, ulcerative colitis. My doctor has refered me to a different hospital & specialist than the one I went to last time for another check up. Not nice, I know, but it has to be done. I am just waiting for my appointment to come through. In the meantime, my doctor has given me a 5 week dose of steroids to calm the current flare up I have.
Thanks again for the response. It is wonderful to beable to 'talk' to others without feeling awkward, so thank u. I will definately keep u informed of the outcome.

This is in regards to my mom and well she has colitis but is worried now cause for the past 3mos she has been having frequent BM's with blood mucus and she is terrified that it could be cancer. Last colonoscopy was 3yrs ago. Doctor's have tried her a lot of different medications and none work. Well some make her sicker than she was or just don't help at all. Could this really be a sign of her biggest fear?

Help!!!
I am a 24 year old woman with a 4 year old Daughter who is suffering from an anal discharge. It does not smell but is a little worrying. There is no blood either. My bowel habit is very poor, and always has been, opening twice a week at most. I take fluoxetine for depression. Any ideas? I don't drink coffee and my dairy intake is minimal. I have had this before when I was pregnant with my Daughter but it cleared up after giving birth (normal delivery at 42 weeks). I am most definitely not pregnant now, I have the Implanon implant inserted.

For over a week I have had nothing but mucuos coming from my rectum, it comes with as leakage sometimes, now it has tiny flecks of red blood in it. I had taken a lot of different anto biotics in the last 2 months and dr thinkks it killed off all my good bacteria I am now afraid to leave house and have to wear pads all the time also a lot of cramping like there is something solid that will not come out.

I had a quick question. I have been constipated for as long as I can remember. I use to make fun of my husband for having a BM every day and then I realized that having a BM once every 2wks to 1 month is not normal (which is what I do) When I DO finally have a BM it is very painful, I have to strain, its very painful and when it finally comes out it is HUGE. My husband says something isnt right and I need to get it checked out ASAP. The question I had was, I had a BM this morning and there was a dark bloody mucus when I wiped .. should I be worried? What is your advice?

Hope you can help!
