Anal discharge/smell

I have not had sex in 3 years, I am 56 years old and I have a wet, fishy sometimes mucus like discharge from the anus. What is this?

Hello,
There are many causes of rectal discharge chief ones being inflammation of rectum, infections, anorectal abscess and fistula, polyps, cancers and ulcerative colitis. You need to get it examined from a doctor to confirm the diagnosis.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
