I have thin stool occasionally and pain in the right lumbar region. Blood in stool sometimes. Went to doctor for bleeding and was told is anal fissure?
Confusing question: An anal fissure is either evident on physical exam or suspected by the bright red blood that coats the stool as it exits.

Blood clots are not typical for a fissure, but possible. ...Read more
