Doctor Help just passing mucus with stool is this ok having panick attack help

Hi, thank you for getting in touch. A small amount of mucus passed is not necessarily cause for concern. It actually look s a bit like a drop of blood to me and I'm fairly certain this will represent a haemorrhoid (or pile in old terms)./ These are extremely common and very treatable. I'd advise you to buy some Anusol cream from any pharmacy and apply a small amount to your anus and possibly slightly inside the anus twice a day for a week. You should notice it will go completely in a few days. There is nothing to suggest this is cancer or anything sinister.

Shall i try and force to go to the toilet or will that make it worse

Honestly all you need to do is buy that cream and apply it twice a day. You'll be surprised at how quick it goes. To stop it coming again just eat more fibre and makr sure you're well hydrated and exercise often. Nothing else needs doing and certainly no need for concern.

Ok is mucus common i just really worry you get me

That's ok I understand. Remember this is our bread and butter and we see this all the time. Take my word for it, try the cream and you'll be fine. I hope you feel better for that. If you could leave a positive review I'd be really grateful, all the very best :)

Have you seen alot of that type of cancer

This isn't a type of cancer at all, it's just a swelling that happens if we don't get enough fibre that's all and I've seen it thousands of times.
