Blood in stool. Colonoscopy showed mild proctitis inflammation. Biopsies normal. Gi not worried, no treatment, no diagnosis. . Should I be worried. ?

Had colonoscopy in 2002, was fine. Had one recently, microscopic blood in stool, can you get coloncancer within 10 yrs? 64 yr old female.

Absolutely...: There are several biologic pathways by which cells grow into cancer--this is particularly true with colon cancer. "interval colon cancers" are defined as presenting relatively soon after a negative colonoscopy exam. This phenomenon is well-defined & well-recognized in the medical literature, distinct from missed or regrowing lesions, & accepted as inevitable despite current screening strategies. ...Read more

I have UC and my blood in stool came back my GI dr knows about it I'm havering a colonoscopy but what can I do for now I don't get it for a month?

Advice from your doc: If you have had blood in your stool before, and have seen a gastroenterologist, then some treatment has probably already been prescribed. This could be medication such as sulfasalazine, other oral or enema medications including Asacol (mesalamine) or Lialda, or even cortisone. Call your doctor back to make sure she/he doesn't want you to increase or change your medication before your colonoscopy. Good luck! ...Read more
