Do you think the mucus could be a result from my hemorrhoid? This typically happens when my hemorrhoid flares up. I have no pains or anything.
Thanks for any help!
I don't know the cause, but I have the same syptoms and expect to consult a gastroenterologist soon. I do believe it is not the symptom of a serious condition. The only woman I knew who had this condition and told me about it was somene who had given birth five times. She was about 50 when she developed the symptoms. I also have a hemorrhoid. The doctor told me that it is on the outside, but is the type seen in internal hemmorhoids. I will post again when I learn more about this condition.
