I had bleeding in stool for a few months. I have also suffered with piles since a teenager. They were not continuously problematic, and with a little bleeding, but very sore at times. I thought the blood in the stool was again piles problems. But the blood was more maroon colored, and was a daily observation, but no pain other than the piles with some bright red blood more like the color and liquid that would mostly float in the water unlike the darker blood. I had 5 polyps removed, and one had cancer.

I was quite frightened when I was told they had found something on colonoscopy. I was told afterwards I would be referred to colorectal surgeons. I was surprised as it was not what I expected. However, these colon polyps were later removed by a follow up surgeon. I had a slight discomfort afterwards. Very relieved they are benign. They will tell you this at the time. The histology will take 6 to 8 weeks. Don’t worry.
