Thanks for the query.

Occasional Mucus mixed blood(jelly like red blood) on toilet paper for the last 6 months in a young man of 44 years without any other sign & symptoms suggest of rectal polyp or some benign colon pathology like Haemorrhoids. 30 mg lansoprazole per day for 7 years has nothing to do with it.

For confirmation & proper evaluation, please see a gastroenterologist and colonoscopy along with stool examination is desirable & essential & will alleviate any tension of malignancy.

Hope this answers your query. In case of any doubts, I am available for the follow ups.

Wish you speedy recovery.
