Blood In Stool

9 posts in this topic

I have lots of blood in my stools. Bright red blood. I have testing set for next week but the blood in my stool bothers me. Is this an automatic sign of colon cancer? I also have pressure.

Do you have hemmroids???? They usually produce as bright red color, in my experience blood from farther up in the intestines ect is a darker color..your stool would look black.

Definetly bring this up to the DR when you see them!!!!

It could also be from anal fissures.

They may check you for bacterial infections (at least I know thats what they did to me anyways)...

I hope you can get an answer and feel better soon!! I'm still bleeding in my stools more and more often but have no solution (you all remember why...)

i am having the same problem with bright red blood in my stools. i just turned 21 in january and this problem has been going on for over 6 months, i know that i am way to young to have colon cancer and that bright red blood in your stool can happen for a number of reasons, not just cancer. do not worry i was very concernd as well, but the doctor said that i should stick to a gluten free diet, also because i am lactose intolerant and the blood has stopped. a gluten free diet is the easiest way to rule out a gluten intolerance, i know that the blood and severe cramping has stopped. i hope this helps!

feel better and i hope everything is ok

Hemmoroids or anal fissures are the best guess when "bright" red. You can also get this if you are constipated and you "push" it out too hard. This happened to my neighbor's 9 year old boy. Bright red blood all in the toilet. She freaked. But he just tore his little self trying to get hard poo out.

And for any young people reading this, sadly, I had a 24 year old cousin die from colon cancer. You are never too young and blood in your stool or urine should always be checked by a doctor. Always.

I can't hear the word Anal fissure without thinking of Bob, the Anal Fissure. Funny story, if somewhat graphic. Not for those easily offended. Heck, not for those who are hard to offend either.

sometimes it is just rectal bleeding.

i've had that related to colitis.

definitely talk to your doctor, but in the meantime don't freak yourself out too much!

good luck.

My daughter was tested for parasites 3 yrs ago b/c she had blood in her stools. Negative. It came and went several times. I related it to stress. No rectal bleeding. 4 months ago her pms was so bad we took her to an osteopath. He gave her an herb incase it was a bacterial infection and then no more signs of blood, at this time she was found to be allergic to gluten. The first doc said not to worry if it was bright red but if it turned to coffee ground color then get her back in right away. Then just yesterday she had blood in her stool again and some cramps. A couple of days ago she was under huge stress (almost raped but was able to get away, by God's hand of protection). Hers could be stress related, gluten...or?...who knows.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
