This is Dr. David

blood can be quite scary.

blood can be from the prostate gland or from the bladder.

you need to see a doctor to check your urine for blood and blood test to check your PSA and prostate exam.

softening your stool with laxatives and stool softeners can help you not to strain anymore.

do you have a doctor you can see who can check your urine and prostate?

work on softening your stool as well

work on drinking more water and fluids which can help you flush out your bladder
