Blood in the stool indicates that there has been some damage to the intestines or its vessels. You must immediately consult a doctor so that he can make an accurate diagnosis.

WHERE IS THE BLOOD IN THE FEEL?
Blood in the stool is a symptom of a large number of diseases. Rarely, when this is the only sign of malfunctioning of the body. It is possible to diagnose the disease only after studying all the symptoms and prescribing a number of tests. Most likely, the appearance of red blotches of blood in the feces indicates damage to the rectal mucosa. If bleeding occurs in other parts of the intestine, the blood in the stool will turn dark brown or black. The reasons for the appearance of such discharge can be very diverse.
So, for example, a symptom manifests itself during a disease called ulcerative colitis. In this case, blood streaks are observed, both in liquid and solid feces.
The question is often asked whether the blood in the feces is a manifestation of hemorrhoids. There is such a possibility if scarlet blood remains on the toilet paper or blood appears that does not mix with feces. It may also indicate a crack in the anus. The worst option is rectal cancer.
If, along with the blood, the manifestation of mucus is also observed, then it may be ulcerative colitis, proctitis or polyps in the rectum. Heavy bleeding may be a sign of ischemic colitis or rectal diverticulosis.
If a small amount of blood is a one-time, it does not mix with the feces in case of constipation, then it is possible this is a usual hyperextension or rupture of the anus due to too hard feces. In this case, you do not need to see a doctor. However, there is a danger of the so-called occult blood, which can be caused by bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract. In this case, a disease such as a duodenal ulcer or stomach ulcer is likely. At the slightest suspicion of these diseases, it is necessary to immediately pass an analysis for occult blood in the feces.
Symptoms depend on the disease causing the blood in the stool.
Since the cause of blood in the feces can be various diseases, it is impossible to single out any one direction in treatment. The most important thing is not to let everything go by itself, immediately consult a doctor and do a microbiological analysis of feces, which will help to accurately establish the correct diagnosis. After a thorough diagnosis, a diagnosis is made, and then the underlying disease is treated, which caused the appearance of blood in the feces.
