I am experiencing bloating or abdominal fullness, lower abdominal pain and rectal bleeding. The following also describes me: Diarrhea. The pain has been for about a week.?

Need to examine: Bleeding from the lower end needs to be evaluated by a physical examination. It is likely to be hemorrhoids, however, even that needs to be addressed by a doctor and you should see one.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Rectal blood: Rectal bleeding and lower abdominal pain must be investigated by a gastroenterologist or colorectal surgeon. Inflammatory bowel disease like ulcerative colitis may be present. Irritable bowel syndrome combined with bleeding from hemorrhoids is another possibility. If bleeding is copious or if abdominal pain persists, go to the hospital emergency room where prompt evaluation can take place.? tics ...Read more

My husband has rectal bleeding, stomach pain, sleeping a lot and an enlarged prostrate. He has had a full range of blood tests. Very worried wife. Thanks?

Gastroenterologist: I don't think that blood tests alone would shed light on the cause of his symptoms. Rectal bleeding must be investigated to look for hemorrhoids, anal fissure, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulosis of the colon or the presence of a tumor. I recommend that he be evaluated by a gastroenterologist and colonoscopy may be advised. ...Read more

Pencil Thin stools. Very little amount of bright red rectal bleeding. Abdominal pain. Could it be colon cancer? I'm 18 years old. (No cancer in family)

You need an exam: Although it would be rare in someone your age to have colon cancer, especially without a family history, you should definitely be seen and examined by a qualified colorectal surgeon or GI... if you are also having sharp anal pain with BMs you might have something simple like an anal fissure, which can also cause bleeding and (occasionally) pencil thin stools. ...Read more

Please get help...: Gi bleeding is never normal, but when prolonged for months associated with lower abdominal distress as you describe, then colitis (colon inflammation) must be ruled out. Possibilities at your age most likely include: 1) inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis or crohn's); 2) infection, maybe chronic or recurrent. Don't delay further--get evaluated by your doctor or GI specialist. ...Read more

IF you were: Severely constipated and passing hard stool the bleeding could be due to hemorrhoid inflammation. However, I would be just as concerned about why you got so severely backed up.

I had some slight rectal bleeding a few months ago. None since. No abdominal discomfort, but now having thinner stools. Sometimes diarrhea also.

IBS: You may have irritable bowel syndrome but rectal blood is abnormal and could have been due to an anal fissure, hemorrhoids, inflammation of the colon, or a growth in the colon. Since you are still having erratic bowel activity, it's advisable to consult your physician or a gastroenterologist for evaluation and treatment. It is a good sign that you have had no further rectal bleeding, however. ...Read more
