The common causes of blood in bowel motions can be;

1) Hemorrhoids or piles

2) Anal fissure

3) Polyp rectum

4) Diverticulitis

5) Inflammatory bowel disease like crohn's disease

6) Growth in rectum or colon

Investigations needed to establish the cause are;

1) Proctoscopy

2) Colonoscopy

3) Barium enema

Hemorrhoids are the commonest cause.

The treatment of hemorrhoids is by warm sitz bath, avoiding straining, keeping the stools soft and local application of the ointment like proctosedyl or Preparation-H.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
