a helminthic condition?
Do you mean mucous?: Anal discharge is most likely proctitis, seborrhea or anal fissure. Have you been cleared of std? Helminthic infections usually do not have rectal discharge.

Recent colonoscopy could not be completed due to multiple diverticula with associated hypertrophy of Muscle, could this be cancerous?
Yes but less likely: if you have extensive diverticulosis this can be a problem to advance the camera through certain areas. If you have had diverticulitis before you may develop narrowings in the colon.

Colonoscopy says Ulceraroproliferative growth noted at 20cm from anal verge extending upto 3cm and 50%circumference. Diverticulae noted in descending 40cm from anal verge. Does this mean cancer?
It's concerning: This sounds large....up to 17 cm and halfway encircling the sigmoid colon. Potentially it could be something benign, but the fact that words suggesting ulceration and proliferation are used raise concern for cancer as well. I'm certain you are scheduled for follow-up; this should be as soon as possible. All the best wishes:) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Recently had a colonoscopy and the report states very tight rectosigmoid, diffiicult colon and single diverticulum noted. What does all this mean.

In either event, you are 44 years old. I would highly consider removing his part of your colon given these two findings. Please speak with your doctor further or with a surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Alternative possibilities for the pain now include diverticulosis without the inflammation/infection, ibs (irritable bowel) or colitis (us or crohn's). The fresh blood is indicative of bleeding from a anorectal source most commonly hemorrhoids. See your doctor about this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
