Question: Blood in feces


 sn0wangellw02 - Tue Jul 26, 2005 9:25 am

This morning after going to the bathroom I noticed bright red blood when I wiped. I looked in the toilet and noticed that my feces were also bright red. I always hear that having blood in your feces is a sign of something bad but I was wondering if anyone could let me know what that could be a sign of? Thank you much :)

i have a fissure and 2 piles that some times bleed also pain or ache when sitting .

Hemorrhoids is the most common cause of rectal bleed under the age of 50. Painless bleeding is usually associated with a bowel movement. Bright red blood typically coats the stool at the end of defecation. Blood may also drip into the toilet or stain toilet paper. Hemorrhoidal bleeding is almost always painless. Thus, bleeding associated with painful defecation should prompt investigation for other causes such as anorectal fissures.


you should see your doc and get a dre.
