Hello Lia, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Some of the causes of your complaint include:
Inflammatory bowel (Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis)
Tumors or cancers of the digestive tract
Defecation (bowel movements) that can be caused by bleeding around the anus, hemorrhoids, infection, inflammation, a tumor or malignancy in the digestive tract. Frequency of bowel movements each person is usually different, if there is a change in the frequency to be less than before or constipation, can also cause hemorrhoids and make bowel movements bleed.
Previously the doctor needs additional information about your complaint, how long have you felt the complaint, how old are you, how much blood is coming out? Is the color of the blood whether fresh red blood, dark red or black? Is there a lump around the anus that can enter or exit the anus? is there any weight loss?
