Brown jelly-like substance passed with wind. Blood on tissue. What to do?

I am 25 years of age, and when I pass wind I sometimes get a brown/yellow jelly like substance coming out and also some blood on the tissue after I have been to the toilet. I have been to my GP already who advised me that its normal to get this jelly substance if im constipated and that the blood was caused by a prominent vein but i m not constipated and have no trouble going to the loo. Any advice on where to go from here would be great Mr Pointer

Thank you for the query.

This jelly like substance is mucus. Every intestinal mucosa cell secretes such mucus so its present is quite normal. But the bowel movement with mucus only is not a normal thing. As well as blood in stool. Such symptoms can be caused by IBS,rectal polyp, inflammatory intestinal disease, hemorrhoids or even colon cancer (unlikely at your age). It is advisable for you to have colonoscopy performed. Full blood work, pancreas tests, urine analysis, stool tests and abdominal ultrasound should be also performed.

Hope this will help.
