Yesterday, when I was going to the toilet, I suddenly found some bright red blood stains on the stool. I was a little scared. I am not suffering from some disease, right? Baidu and I said that there are all kinds of hemorrhoids, ulcerative colitis, rectal tumors, and colon cancers. Wait, all have cancer. My family asked me to go to the hospital for a look. I was a little afraid to go. I want to consult first. What is the cause of bleeding from stool?
Hematochezia is actually very common in the anorectal department, and is generally related to diseases such as hemorrhoids and rectal cancer. Therefore, once many people have blood in the stool, they worry about whether they have cancer. So, what are the facts? Let's talk about those things about blood in the stool.
First, let me introduce [blood in stool]
The so-called blood in the stool means that bright red blood appears on the surface of the stool when the stool is pulled, or there is a little blood on the paper towel. It is caused by living habits or diseases, such as upper gastrointestinal bleeding, or hemorrhoids; or some red food in the daily diet will cause red things to appear in the stool.
Well, generally speaking, normal people will not have blood in the stool, and blood in the stool will only occur when the body is abnormal.
Different types of blood in the stool represent early warning of physical conditions
First: bright red blood appears in the bowel movement. It may be bleeding from the lower gastrointestinal tract. It is necessary to pay attention to whether it is an anal and rectal disease, such as anal fissure, anal fistula, perianal abscess, hemorrhoids, etc. It is best to go to the hospital for a colonoscopy or an anorectal doctor.
Second: Dark red blood clots, black or tarry stools appear . It shows that the bleeding site is relatively high. In the upper gastrointestinal tract, the blood stays for a long time, and it will condense into dark red when it is discharged.
It is more common in gastric ulcer and gastric malignant tumor bleeding.
Third: Slightly bleeding stools. The amount of lightly bleeding stool is very small, so it is easy to be overlooked, especially when women are menstruating, it is easy to mix with menstrual bleeding. The main consideration for mild bloody stools is related to mild hemorrhoids, which are caused by the rupture of capillaries around the rectum. In addition, there may be other diseases, such as colorectal tumors. If the fecal occult blood test can be done in time, the bleeding that cannot be detected by the naked eye can be detected in time, and it can also provide a basis for the examination of rectal tumors.
Fourth: "occult blood" stool. Some people eat some special foods, such as pig blood, dragon fruit, animal liver, etc., will also have black stools, and mistakenly think that there is blood in the stool.
Well, there are many causes of blood in the stool. Some are caused by your own reasons, and some are caused by diseases. No matter what the cause, when facing blood in the stool, don't be nervous. After a simple judgment, if the condition is serious, you must Seek medical attention promptly.
