2. Mucus or blood discharge

The presence of mucus in the stool is common, but if there is more than normal, it could be a sign of an underlying health issue. If blood accompanies it, it could indicate conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, anal fissures or even rectal cancer. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for mucus and blood in the stools. Treatment will be different depending on the cause. A colonoscopy may help to rule out other conditions before considering treatment for rectal prolapse. This involves inserting a long, tubular instrument and examining the colon and the rectum.
