Blood in bowel movement

Common Questions and Answers about Blood in bowel movement


Avatar f tn They can cause darkening of stools which people mistake for blood in the stools. Other causes of blood in stools are bacterial and parasitic infestation(entamoeba), aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and, polyps (small growths) and cancerous tumors (malignant growths of tissue). Diagnosis is by ultrasound abdomen and stool examination. In some cases sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy may be needed.

Avatar f tn During a bowel movement I passed a few red blood clots, as well as a bunch of blood. What does this mean?
Avatar n tn It is not mixed with the stool, rather it is just on the surface of the water in the toilet bowl. Except for the recent difficulty in bowel movement, I am not ill or anything and in fact I'm feeling well. What could this mean?
Avatar n tn Stool color looks normal, no blood, sometimes blood in the water, can't tell if any blood in the stool. At least one bowel movement, when using toilet paper, was clear but then the next time, would have blood. What is wrong w/ me and what do I do? Thanks.
Avatar m tn For at least a year or so now, I've had blood on the toilet paper after a bowel movement. It's not been every time, but at least 90 percent of the time. It's pretty much always just a minor amount, so I just assumed I was wiping too hard, and the sandpaper they put in the bathrooms at work doesn't help. Only a few times has it been more than just a smear of blood. 2 weeks or so ago, I did a little self exam and found an approx. 3/16" discoloration to the lower left of my anus.
Avatar n tn i had thin/ flat stools was constipated and a numb feeling down below , went to DRs who done an internal straight away and discovered a lump in rectum which turned out to be rectal cancer , after a colonoscopy also found a cancerous polip in bowel which was removed in january this year , ANY CHANGE IN YOUR BOWEL MOVEMENTS MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR GP STRAIGHT AWAY , also check for blood in stools another good indication , wish you all the best
Avatar f tn I'm using birth control (the patch) and today when I had bowel movement it was red, like the color of blood. At first I wasn't concerned because I figure it was some red chips I had earlier today, but before I used the bathroom the second time my stomach started hurting and that's when I noticed the blood looking color. Should I be worried?
Avatar n tn I am a 36 year old female and have recently had very loose and frequent (2ish per day) bowel movements that are tan in color. Today I just had a bowel movement that was tan with a lot of red (blood?) in it. I have never had any gastroenterology problems in my life. I am limiting my calorie intake in an effort to lose weight, but this started prior to the diet. I drink a lot of coffee which always accelerates my bowel movements but this is a definite change. Thank you.
Avatar f tn Is the blood fresh (red) or dark in colour? Is it actually in your stool or just when you wipe? How much blood is in the toilet? Why don't you want to tell your mom? It's likely this is nothing serious but paired with other symptoms such as extreme gas, bloating, nausea, abdominal pain- it could point to endometriosis (which is the site you posted on) or inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn's or Colitis. I have both endometriosis and Crohn's disease and I experience this regularly.
Avatar n tn I don’t know much about the 'sack of pus' but what really concerns me is the blood and pus that you’ve been having in your stool. I’m sure that you’ve done your own research and I am not a professional but I will tell you to relax. Statistics work in your favour; you are probably suffering from something very treatable. It could be as simple as hemorrhoids, but not necessarily which is why you should get it checked out.
Avatar m tn I would like t o inquire about my bowel movements. About 2 years ago i had banding for my hemorrhoids. Since then I think I eat more fiber and spend less time in the washroom. I used sit on the toilet for 15-20 minutes and read newspaper but now I go and come back in seconds. I have noticed that my bowel movements are 2-3 times a day now compared to once a day before. It happens almost at the same time everyday.
568603 tn?1240407635 How you doing, I just don't know where to begin. Last year i didn't have a bowel movement for over 3 months and i was told that it was dued to my medications that i was on at the time. My docto said that it was the calicum pills that i was taking.
Avatar f tn My brother is three days out of the hospital where he underwent hip replacement surgery. Now into his fifth day without a bowel movement, he had a small bowel movement this morning. He is alarmed about mucus he observed with the bowel movement. He's also feeling bloated and has stomach distress, probably from the bloating. Any thoughts on what may be his problem?
Avatar n tn Since I stopped straining, the blood that I was passing with each bowel movement is very minimal. Not very worrying. Hope everything gets, and good luck.
Avatar f tn no blood during two bowle movements but i had another bowel movement before bed and had blood once again. This moning i had another bowel movement and no blood at all. I do have diverticulosis and had a case of diverticulitis last yr. I need some answers as i am very concerned this could be cancer. This discussion is related to <a href=''>Bright red blood in toilet</a>.
Avatar f tn Sometimes when I have to go and have a bowel motion it is very hard to pass and when I wipe the area there is often streaky blood like material on the toilet paper there is also blood in the stool although this has not been tested but that is what it looks like. This only happens occasionally. My Doctor has sent me for two bowel tests which had me empty my bowel both were not conclusive because for various reasons they were not able to complete the tests.
