Causes And Ways To Deal With Bowel Movements Accompanied By Blood?
Hello, I want to ask. A few months ago I suddenly defecated followed by thin red blood. The color of my stool is normal. This happened for 3 days. The blood volume is rather large. After that does not happen again. But today I suddenly defecated followed by thin red blood again. The color of my stool is also normal, not black or red. My stomach is also fine not feeling pain in certain parts. My bowel movements have always been irregular even though I consume fiber every day. Do you think there is an internal disease? I did not dare to take medication because I was on medication for my endometriosis cyst.
Thank you for the question.
A lot of fresh blood comes out when bowel movements can be caused by several factors, such as:
Hemorrhoids (hemorrhoid); Namely the swelling of veins around the anus and lower rectum. It often occurs in obese people, especially those who often have problems with constipation, diarrhea or chronic coughs, and pregnant women. Fisura ani; That is a condition where the anal wall is torn, it can be due to the passage of hard feces, chronic diarrhea, labor, the habit of having anal sex, anal cancer, Crohn's disease, or other infections around the anus. Anal cancer; Namely malignant tumors in the anal area Other factors, such as colorectal cancer, dysentery, anal abscess, proctitis, peptic ulcer, ruptured esophageal varices, intestinal cancer, the influence of drugs, the effect of consuming food or drinks containing red dye, etc. Not all conditions in dangerous top. It's just that, if complaints recur very often, it means you need to see yourself directly to the doctor so it is clear what the originator. If necessary, the doctor will be able to carry out further tests (such as anuscopy, stool tests) or also refer you to the appropriate specialist (such as a surgeon) for further treatment.
In the meantime, to prevent recurring complaints, we recommend you to:
