Persistent mucous in bowel movements can often be related to irritable bowel syndrome but potentially can be caused by a number of disorders including: a gastro-intestinal infection by bacteria, viruses or parasites, an inflammatory bowel disorder, malabsorption syndromes, or in some rare circumstances due to a malignant growth of the gastro-intestinal tract. I advise you attend your family doctor for a detailed history and physical examination. He will be able to perform some routine blood tests, take a stool sample and exclude many of the above causes, and provide some symptomatic relief.
