Ask an Urology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello. I'm Dr ChipThanks for your question and I'm reviewing it.I'll be back in a moment with and answer or a request for more information
Matt was there any pain with those bowel movements?
Usually when this happens its from internal hemorrhoids and nothing worrisome
Colon polyps generally don't produce bright red blood in the stool and neither does colon cancer
So I very much doubt your polyps have returned
That said, any time this happens it warrants letting ones doctor know about it
If I were your doctor I would visually and manually check for hemorrhoids and consider a sigmoidoscopy to look for potential polyps
Please let me know if you need any more information
I really doubt it's cancer especially since you had a colonoscopy a year ago
Is that helpful?
My pleasure and call on me anytime
