Customer Question

I am passing gas with bright red blood and very worried. What could it be?

As such bright red blood suggest lower GI bleeding.

The most common cause of lower GI bleeding is piles or anal fissure.

Usually fissure is painful.

Also ano-rectal examination is required for a diagnosis and in some cases proctoscopy.

These conditions are common in people with constipation.

I hope this helps
