Question: possible wound in anus?


 vittoria - Sat Feb 19, 2005 4:00 am

Hi,

Is having blood during bowel discharge dangerous? Whenever i do this, there seems like blood fluid which is also discharged, well it's not directly in the bowel. I feel like there is a wound, am i right about this? Do i need to see the doctor now?

Hi vittoria,

Do you have any pain after a bowel movement that lasts for some time afterwards? Or a sharp pain during a bowel movement?

If so, it could be a fissure. This is a tear in the lining of the anus. Another possibility is hemorrhoids. As there's bleeding, it would be a good idea to see the doctor. Hope this helped :)
