You are young: It is hard to imagine what could be bleeding in your colon, at your age and not seen by colonoscopy.

Suffer from rectal ulcer with sessile polyp, I have continuos bloody mucous bleeding with constipation, am on pentasa (mesalamine) what to do else?

Rectal Ulcer: You are on Mesalamine for uc? Of course, the bleeding and mucus is likely associated with active ulcerative colitis.

The usual treatment is to use a stool softener and increase fiber in the diet. If you have rectal bleeding it's best to discuss with your physician before assuming it's "just from hemorrhoids".
