A long tube runs from the mouth to the anus. It includes, in order, the mouth, throat, esophagus, stomach, small intestine (duodenum, jejunum, ileus), caecum, the ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid colon (or large intestine) and the rectum. The space inside that tube , the lumen, is considered to be outside of the body. When we bleed into that space ...Read more

Do not worry: Your stool is okay. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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. ...Read more

I am on azathioprine and I just got lumpy blood in my stool today, i'm a little worried, before this I have been having bad stomach pain.

Concerning.: Blood in the stool and the pain are quite concerning complaints. You did not mention what disease you are using the Azathioprine for but it does not matter. You need to seek medical attention now. Dark blood in the stool usually is coming from the stomach and bright red blood from the rectum/large bowel. Stomach ulcers/gastritis are possible causes of your symptoms. See a physician. Good luck ...Read more

Uterus/bladder issue: The best way to evaluate it is by doing through exam followed by a biopsy of the inside of the uterus (endometrium) and also a cystoscopy. This way you could rule out the life-threatening possibilities like uterus or bladder cancer and identify the issue. ...Read more

Hi, I have had a lot of mucous and blood in my stools which I am getting concerned about?

Any other symptoms?: This must be new if concerning to you. Bright red blood is usually due to irritation at the rectum and less commonly due to an internal problem. Are you having fevers consistent with an infection? Do you have a normal appetite? Any other symptoms? Will need to know more before offering any kind of potential diagnosis. If concerned, why not see your primary care doc or get a Virtual Consult? ...Read more

I went to the bathroom and i had bloody stool. Lots of blood. What is wrong with me? I am male and 31 years old

I went to the bathroom and i had bloody stool. Lots of blood. What is wrong with me? I am male and 31 years old

Hemorrhoids: If you are otherwise young and healthy, this is most likely local blood you are seeing. I would expect that it is bright red blood, and not maroon or black (digested) blood from higher up. It can be quite shocking to see this, but can be caused by simple things such as low-fiber diet and exertion. Start with preparation h cream & suppositories. See your fp if it doesn't resolve in 2 days. ...Read more

I am pregnant and just had a spot of blood in my urine - what's going on?

Blood in urine: It could be an early UTI. It could also be spotting from recent sex, a vaginal exam or vaginal ultrasound evaluation. Also during pregnancy the cervix is usually friable (bleeds easily) and can do it for no reason at all. If it persists or worsens, it never hurts to call your OB provider just to report it. ...Read more

I'm 26 and i noticed that i had a dark spot on my right breast me being me i popped it and blood came out and now have a dip there have i done damage?

Not likely: Even at 26 years of age, any masses or changes like this on the breast should be examined by a physician as you wouldn't want to miss a pre-cancer or cancer. A typical sebaceous cyst or a pimple is not going to leave a 'dip' as you describe, so i think you should have this examined by a doctor. Likely okay, but definitely get it checked out. ...Read more

Im 5wks pregnant have had slight cramps here and there for about 2wks 2day i noticed a lil brown blood on my underwear what's going on?

May be fine: It is common for women to have a little bleeding around the time the embryo is growing into the wall of the uterus, called implantation bleeding. This can occur around the time of the missed period. Some cramping in the first trimester is also common. However bleeding and cramping that are getting worse can sometimes occur with a possible miscarriage. Check with your doctor. ...Read more

Be checked...: Go to be checked and counseled so to assure what and how you may expect in future sex. But still remember: Anus is meant for defecation although personal urge and fantasy to pursue seeking unlimited sex pleasure has reined and even ruined some people's life. Of course, minimally, one needs to see you may have hemorrhoids. ...Read more

I am seeing tiny spots of black in my stools on and off. I do have I B S  and hemmoroids  which have been bothering me lately. ?

Black "spots" ...: may mean bleeding from higher up in the GI tract such as the stomach. Or it may not be blood at all. You might start by trying to do a stool test for occult blood, either at home or with your doctor. Typically hemorrhoidal bleeding would be (bright) red, and usually no bleeding with IBS. Could gum lesion have been bleeding?? ...Read more
