Re: Blood in stool. Hypochondria.

Blood in stool is something that warrants investigation. It could be hemorrhoids or some injury to the rectum, but it could be something else. Since it's been happening infrequently for a while, it's not likely to be too urgent, but do look into it. I would go back to the dr who told you to come back if it didn't improve.

Blood tests that are looking for something else would not necessarily find the cause.

Have you tried any hemorrhoid treatments?

Re: Blood in stool. Hypochondria.

Hi I would find a doctor worth his salt. Any doctor who knows the patient smokes and had rectal or bowel movement bleeding aught to refer to a GI specialist who will investigate it in case there is a tumor.

I would quit smoking, quit drinking and change lifestyle habits to much more healthy habits.

Re: Blood in stool. Hypochondria.

My understanding is that if it's bright red, it's probably a hemorroid, especially if you're experiencing anal pain. Not drinking enough water is probably your problem. Dry stools hurt.

Re: Blood in stool. Hypochondria.

Hi bright red blood can be other things too such as an anal tear possibly from too hard a B.M.
