What do you think??

My son is 23 yrs old, and came to me yesterday all scared, because he said he went to the bathroom and had a bowel movement, and said when he went to wipe, there was blood on the tissue and blood in the toilet.
I asked him if he had to push to have the bowel movement and he said yeah.. I'm thinking it might be Hemmroids? He also mentioned he was having a lot of lower abdominal pain?? Any thoughts??
He also mentioned he had this happen before, but not as much blood as yesterday?

Re: What do you think??

The fact he wiped and then saw the blood on the toilet paper makes me think of hemmorhoids.

....But, im not so sure that abdominal pain is a symptom of hemmorhoids, rather somethnig more serious. I wonder if the blood was inside his stool and seeped out into the water, or was it coated/streaked on the outside of his stool, etc.....

Perhaps do some research and look up symptoms of hemmorhoids. Have him decde if he thinks it warrants a dr visit.

We can give our opinions here but we certainly can not diagnose or tell you whether or not to visit the dr. Ultimately, thats a choice your son should make and he may want to make a visit just incase its something that needs medical attention (And in some cases, hemmorhoids, though common, do need to be treated medically)
