Question: I AM SCARED AND EMBARRASSED


 KATIEMEOLA - Thu Jan 20, 2005 3:34 pm

I AM 28 YEARS OLD AND IN THE PAST FEW WEEKS HAVE NOTICED THAT THERE HAS BEEN BLOOD IN MY STOOL. I FIRST SAW IT ON THE TOILET TISSUE AND THEN I SAW IT IN MY STOOL. I AM NERVOUS AND EMBARRASSED. WHAT SHOULD I DO? WHAT COULD BE THE REASON FOR IT?
