I would get another colonoscopy to be safe at this point. I don't know how long my cancer was brewing in my rectum or when it was a polyp even. I just knew when I went to the bathroom I saw streaks of blood on my poop and when I wiped there was bright red blood. I thought it was hemorrhoids and so did my GI who scheduled a colonoscopy and saw a tumor.
The streaks on my poop were not bright red, they were maroon, or darker color. When I wiped my booty is when I saw bright red. I too have internal and external hemorrhoids, so I figured the bright red was from it. Still streaking on the poop is concerning. Go to a GI, I would skip a GP (is that general practitioner). Good Luck and keep us posted. A Lot of knowledge on this board I am a bit newer.
