Re: question about blood in stool
Missmokay is right..blood in the stool should never be ignored. It could be anything from hemorrhoids.. to a fissure.. to cancer. If you've been going more frequently lately, or straining, it's possible it's the former two, especially if the blood is bright red. However, I cannot stress this enough, do not ignore this and do not assume anything. Just see a gastroenterologist who will be able to determine almost immediately if it's simply hemorrhoids.
