Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
I did not have an occult blood test. There was so much blood that the doctor said I didn't need one. The blood is still present and it's becoming more frequent. The doctor did not do a physical exam, but he called saying the blood test was normal. I'm not sure what my haemoglobin levels are.
I went to a walk-in clinic at a local hospital. The doctor performed a rectal exam and didn't feel any hemorrhoids and said that the test showed no blood on the glove or whatever it was that was put there. So my question is what could it be then? He scheduled no other tests. Are there times when bloody stools just happen on occasion?
