Hi there,


I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.


I am here to help you with your concerns.

mysticdoc :

Most commonly hemorrhoids can cause blood in the stool especially with smear on paper.

mysticdoc :

This can be due to the radiation therapy or a separate issue.

mysticdoc :

A colonoscopy should be considered however to rule out any precancerous lesion in the rectum or colon.

mysticdoc :

Given your history of cancer, this should be checked out.

mysticdoc :

In case of hemorrhoidal bleeding, stool softeners will help with soft stool.

mysticdoc :

Sitz bath which involves sitting on the warm water for 10 minutes is helpful as well.

mysticdoc :

There are surgical options as well.

mysticdoc :

Hence, you should discuss with your doctor the above options.
