Lab results show i do not have gi bleed.but something bright red keeps showing up in my stools ? what could it be?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Blood in stool: It is blood --- from either inside rectum or anal area -- or more remotely bladder or uterus. Do you have blood on toilet tissue? If not yet done, I believe you require rectal exam, proctoscopy or sigmoidoscopy, and GYN exam. Also 3 home stool samples for blood using heme occult cards are necessary.
