Blood in stool?
For the last several weeks I notice blood in my stool. Fist I thought it was a rectal fissure, as I had that problem before and doctor said it was not harmful. But as I pay more attention to it, the blood is on the latter part of the stool (when I defecate, the first stool that came out was fine, until about 15", then the stool with fresh blood shows up. Starting yesterday, I also feel a light sore inside the right side of my stomach (I think it's where my colon is?). The blood is red, and once the bloody stool came out, blood drips off my anus. What does this means? I am a 34 yr old male, with no serious health problem before. Thanks,
