Have bright red blood on toilet paper/water not in stool and when I looked there's cracks in my anus feels sharp when im pooping. Is this cancer?

Not likely: This sounds more like an anal fissure. These usually get better within a month if you avoid trauma to the area and constipation. If you have continued problems after that, surgery is usually very effective. See an experienced surgeon if it doesn't get better. ...Read more

Normal colonoscopy 2 months ago. Noticed some blood on stool (not sure) but blood on toilet paper when wiping, and some stool. Need colonoscopy again?

No: Probably an internal hemorrhoid, fissure, or something else. A negative colonoscopy does not need repeating for 5-10 years in general.
You may still need to have persistent rectal bleeding checked out at some point, but you won't need a colonoscopy. ...Read more

I sometimes have a little bright red blood on toilet paper after hard stool. What is the most likely cause?

Mild trauma: When stool is quite hard and typically difficult to pass, micro trauma occurs in the anal tissues. This can lead to an actual slit-type opening called a fissure and/or hemorrhoids. The fact that the blood is bright red indicates that it is coming from low down in the GI tract, i.e. anus. Work to soften stool: drink a generous amount of water, increase fiber in diet, daily exercise. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Symptoms -blood on toilet paper (not in stool), slight cramp on upper left side, mucous stools, heartburn. No nausea or any other symptoms. Thought?

See GI specialist: This could be hemorrhoids, or a other problem at the anal verge. Mucous stools could be some sort of irritable bowel disease, and the other symptoms are more consistent with GERD or excess acid. Basically, there is not one condition that explains all of this, but fortunately there is one specialists who manages all of this... a Gastroenterologist). Consider this follow up if needed. ...Read more

I have been getting pain when passing stools, there is no blood on the toilet paper or on the stools, just pain when passing them, what is it?

Sure, but...: ...Need diagnosis first. "cure" depends on if simply just hemorrhoids/fissure or something serious. Have you been straining at stool, have rectal dysfunction, perform an activity that increases pelvic engorgement with blood or increases pelvic pressure (heavy lifting, prolonged sitting, etc.)? History of colitis, infection, rectal/anal trauma or high risk? Best to get checked--don't delay please. ...Read more

Blood: There may be hemorrhoids or a rectal fissure. Inflammation of the colon is less likely. Rectal blood is abnormal and should be evaluated by a physician.

Doctors at ER couldn't find anything wrong with me; but I am having blood on toilet paper and at the end of stools. It is painful most of the time.

See your doctor: Blood after a bowel movement is not normal and needs an explanation. Likely causes include a fissure or hemorrhoid, but it's important to exclude other possibilities, so a thorough exam is important. Your doctor may want to refer you to a GI specialist for possible colonoscopy. ...Read more

21 and went to bathroom and had a lot of bright red blood on toilet paper and in water (none in stool) I looked at my anus and saw multiple tears?

Anal fissures?: This sounds like an anal fissure, but multiple ones are atypical. Or hemorrhoids? Have you had anal sex or other possible injury to the anal area? If not, and if the problem doesn't recur and the "tears" heal promptly, all probably is OK. A stool softener would be a good idea for a few days. But if in doubt, and especially if at STD risk, see a doctor for professional evaluation. ...Read more

I'm on accutane. Infrequently, I realize that there exists a little bit blood on my toilet paper after stooling? Is it from accutane?

I'm on accutane. Infrequently, I realize that there exists a little bit blood on my toilet paper after stooling? Is it from accutane?

Probably not: Passing hard feces occasionally does a little damage. If you're otherwise healthy, it's not a problem. Accutane actually could be a small part of the problem as sebaceous glands here normally provide the oils that protect the skin of the anus. I wouldn't worry; mention this to your physician who prescribed the medication. ...Read more

I've just been to the toilet and bright red blood was on the toilet paper and my stools were black with streaks of blood. I have a stomach ulcer?

It's possible: Black stools may indicated blood from the upper GI tract such as your stomach. Gastritis can be caused by alcohol (as you mention) and also caffeine, ibuprofen, aspirin, advil, naprosyn (naproxen) and other medications. Please see your doctor to discuss your symptoms soon. If you have any dizziness, shortness of breath, or chest pain please go to the ER right away. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. Dry constipated stools, that are difficult to pass can lead to blood with a bowel movement. Pushing down to pass hard stools can be associated with internal or external hemorrhoids or tears/ fissures in the anal skin. Recommend at least 8 - 8 ounce glasses of water per day, aerobic activity and fiber (especially through intake of fresh vegetables and fruit). If this has happened more than one occassion, discuss with your doctor - so that he or she can determine the cause. Take care. ...Read more
