Brief Answer:
Need to investigate

Detailed Answer:

What you mention about the problem can turn serious. You are passing blood clots via gut. The clots could be due to leaking blood in the lower end of the gut like descending colon, sigmoid colon or rectum.
Sometimes the problem could be simple from fissure to common piles but it needs a detailed investigation like per rectal exam, sigmoidoscopy and if required a lower GI endoscope(colonoscopy).
Your doctor was right in referring your to GI specialist.
Please let me know the details once you are done with the appointment and I can add more lines and inform you much better.

Hello Doctor,

For my father aged 64 years, Height 6 ft, weight 80, he is having problems with the bowel movements. So we have done a Videocolonoscopy. In the last two months he has suddenly lost weight. The report is as follows :

Colonoscope passed till sigmoid colon 25cm.

Unable to pass scope beyond due to stricturing lesion.

Circumferential polypoid ulcerated lesion seen with stricturing effect.

Lession is hard to biopsy and friable on cntact.

Multiple biopsies taken

Rectum shows normal mucosa.

Retroflexed exam of rectum is normal


stricturing lesion in sigmoid colon, preventing further passage of scope..

What it could be and what should be our next steps. Please advise.

I am a 23 year old female with periodic blood in the stool on and off over the last 3-4 weeks. Four days ago, I started having heavy amounts of mucous only in a brownish-yellow color and large amounts of gas. Today, I had a white tissue-looking substance with reddish brown specks in it. In the past 6 days, I have had two bowel movements that were thinner than normal. One was accompanied by profuse sweating and abdominal discomfort.

I had colonoscopy done last year, and there were no polyps or tumours. My mother had stage 3 colon cancer in the sigmoid colon at age 35.

Should I be concerned?
