Since how long? Any other symptom? Any past illness? Any test ? Any treatment taken?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I believe it started on April 25th. I noticed the blood on the tissue but not in stool. Yesterday I had the runs but now its solid. Today I saw the blood again on the tissue and on stool. More of a redish color than dark. My stomach has been upset everyday since the 25th. No past illness, no tests, no treatments taken.

Thank you for the input.

Fresh blood in stool comes most usually from anus or rectum or from lower part of gut . The causes can be hemorrhoid, polyp, fissure , inflammatory bowel diseases , infection or rarely from tumor. When it is only in the tissue only it can be due to a fissure or hemorrhoid. You need to get it examined by doctor for precise diagnosis.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your early recovery.
