I had a scare about 2 years ago when I had excessive bleeding from my rectum. After a colonoscopy, I was told that I have bleeding hemroids. In the last 6 months, I have noticed mucus (mostly clear) in my stool and sometimes instead of stool when I have a bowel movement. I am unclear if this is a sign of anything that may have to do with colon cancer. I would like any insight that folks could offer on this subject.
Thanks Question

Mucous
That was 1 of my symptoms. You need a followup, and quickly. It could be an infection in bowel even. I would recomend you see a specialist asap

Mucous In Stool
If colonoscopy has revealed that the bleeding is due to the haemorrhoids, then you need not worry about any colon changes although you would need a regular check up. The mucus in stool you are referring to could be due to amoebiasis. Remedies like nux vomica, merc. Sol., aloes, collinsonia (homeopathic medicine) are very good to get rid of amoebiasis and bleeding haemorrhoids.

Janet, I am not a doctor, but I was a nurses aide for a few years. Mucous is a normal thing especially when it is clear. Good luck

Hi Janet, how long does the mucus in your stool lasted.?.. if it lasts a week or more... that is a clear sign of Ulcerative Colitis, sometimes called Chron's disease.. you should see a doctor asap if that is the case.

I hope this helps.
