The : The good news is that you have a doctor's apointment. The sooner a diagnosis is made, the sooner treatment can be initiated. It sounds like you are dealing with acid reflux disease; the blood in your stool can be due to hemorrhoids (external or internal) and/or a bleeding ulcer, and can be a sign of colon cancer. You will likely need a test of your upper and lower GI tract (endoscopy and colonoscopy). After a thorough history of your problem, and physical, diagnostic tests can be ordered. Try not to worry. Like i stated, it is good that you are now under a doctor's care. Best of luck.
