Mild Inflamation(inflammation) sigmoid colon

Over past year I have had 2 occurrences of passing bright red blood, no other pain, no sickness, diarrhoea, constipation, no pains anywhere. On the second occasion some 7 months after the first I contacted by GP and had a flexible sigmoidoscopy. Result found mild inflamation (inflammation) in sigmoid and a few ulcers, which were so small they looked like white pin head dots to me, 3 biopsies taken, I'm awaiting the results in the next week. So I didn't have haemorrhoids which I would have thought it would have been and no polyps either. After the Sigmoidoscopy the Dr said I would now need a colonoscopy. I will wait for the results before I decided if this is a necessary route to go down personally, if there is only mild inflamation (inflammation) and I have no other symptoms I can't see the point of an invasive procedure?? Anyone else have the above experience??
