Blood in stool for couple months. Had colonoscopy and everything looked good. Had a 2 mm polyp removed had CT scan and other blood test and nothing found. Ate yellow corn last night and it's dyed red. Is that from blood in my stool? What should I do?

In brief: Depends

On if you have blood or not in your stool.
If the color of stool is red but no blood that is normal and is due diet or medications or drinks. If blood is in the stool an evaluation is warranted. At least a rectal examination looking for fissures, external hemorrhoid or new rectal lesions or ulcers
