Blood on stool/toiler paper
An_254629 posted:
hello. i had bright red blood streaking the outside of my stool and showing up on toilet paper while back. no pain or other discomfort besides lifelong sensitive stomach issues. i went to the doc and they did a colonoscopy & xray of the stomach area. they found nothing. no IBDs, no lumps or polyps. they didnt even seem to think i had any hemmorhoids. the blood went away for a few months but now im starting to see it in the stool again same as before. what should i do?
undefined responded:
When you say "they didn't seem to think" you had hemmorhoids, did they suggest it might still be a possibility? A male friend of mine had/has two internal hemmorhoids, which cause(d) him no pain but bright red blood on the toilet paper is standard. He had the first one removed because he was bleeding more often than not with bowel movements. It's starting again so he will be going to have the second one removed as well.
I just wonder if maybe you have a very small one that wasn't very visible when you were examined, or perhaps it even went away and wasn't visible at all during the examination. It's been a month since your post... has the bleeding stopped?
