I'm 30 years old and have been experiencing intermittent rectal bleeding for the past 6 months. At first is was more frequent and occurred for a few days at a time. Now it can be weeks between episodes. This isn't a major bleed. Just a streak on the toilet paper here and there. No other symptoms. I went to my primary care doctor and was told it was internal hemorrhoids. I was given a prescription for some cream and suppositories. This has helped, reducing the frequency, but the problem is not cured.
So has anyone had this before? I have no other symptoms, but am scared each time it happens. I have an appointment with a gastroenterologist this weeks.
