I have a lot of blood every time I have a bowel movement but it doesn’t hurt, is it dangerous? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Bleeding during bowel movements can be a mild condition, but it can also be dangerous. It needs to be clarified beforehand, how much bleeding is coming out? Is it bright red or black? Do other complaints arise, such as lumps from the anus, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, etc.?
If it is true that the blood that comes out during the defecation is very much, then the possible causes are:
Hemorrhoids are swelling of the veins around the anus or rectum distally. This condition is characterized by a fresh red blood color, often accompanied by a lump that resembles flesh around the anus. Hemorrhoids are more common in women who are pregnant, obese people, often experience constipation, diarrhea, cough or vomiting that doesn't go away.
Dysentery is an infection of the intestine that causes sufferers to experience diarrhea. Diarrhea in dysentery sufferers is often accompanied by mucus and blood. The main cause of this infection is shigella bacteria or amoeba. Sufferers also often experience severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and fever because of it.
These tumors can be benign (eg polyps) or malignant (eg colorectal carcinoma). In addition to bloody bowel movements, sufferers often experience bowel problems (can be diarrhea, but can also be constipated) and lose weight quite drastically.
Diverticulosis, which is the formation of abnormal bulges in the intestines that are prone to rupture) due to infection or inflammation
Anal fissure, which is a tear in the anal wall
Esophageal varices rupture, often occurs in people who have impaired liver function
Blood clotting disorders, for example due to drug side effects, spinal cord abnormalities, blood cancer, and so on
The danger or absence of your condition can only be known after the cause is ascertained. Therefore, you should check yourself directly with a doctor or an internal medicine specialist. Through physical and supporting examinations, such as blood tests, X-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, or stool culture, doctors generally can identify the best treatment to resolve your complaints.
Currently, what you should live with is:
Limit foods that are too spicy, oily, raw or undercooked, or are not hygienically processed
Smooth bowel movements by increasing the consumption of fiber-rich foods
Avoid taking drugs carelessly without advice from a doctor
Keep the area around the anus and genitals clean
