Blood in stool: Blood in the stool is called hematochezia, and there are several causes for this. Small amounts of bright red blood in the stool is commonly caused by damage to the blood vessels lining the rectum from constipation or other trauma. Rectal bleeding associated with large amounts of blood, weight loss, fever, vomiting, weakness, etc. is cause for concern and should be evaluated by a physician.
