I'm 28 and I just want to know if I have something to be concerned about or if it is normal to have mucus from the back passage because I have never seen it before
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 1 month ago.

Thanks for the detail

Mucus in stool can be seen in normal individuals and also if there is irritable bowel syndrome

The mere presence of mucus does not indicate anything serious

Just monitor for any blood in stool or weight loss as only then you will require an evaluation

Please do let me know if you have any other question
