Benign polyp?: A rubbery growth could be a cancer but could also be a benign polyp that has not become a cancer yet. At colonoscopy the growth might be able to be removed or might be judges too large to remove safely but pieces (biopsies) will be obtained to tell what it is.

My 2 yo had a small amount of bright red mucus in stool. It's only a dot or two strictly in the mucus. He has a cold, i've been taking rectals. Worry?

Not too concerning: There are several causes of bright red color in the stool. He may have a small irritation of the anus due to hard stools, more frequent stools, or the rectal temperature assessments. Apply a small amount of vaseline or a;d ointment to help the area heal. Bright red food colors can also show up in the stool (gatorade, koolaid), so you may want to avoid those for now. If it worsens, see you doctor. ...Read more
