Hello, Can't: Accurately state cause of blood with information available. One cause of rectal bleeding is an anal fissure. However, a fissure causes usually severe pain with a bm ; you didn't mention pain (so doubt that). Your fingernails could cause trauma to delicate rectal tissue - so that might be a reason. If stool was stuck - it could be hard, dry and bulking - that can abraide tissues ; cause bleeding. ...Read more

My stool has been soft and with some green color to it, when I wipe there's some green slime to it?

My stool has been soft and with some green color to it, when I wipe there's some green slime to it?

Let me explain: Stool color is generally influenced by what you eat as well as by the amount of bile a yellow-green fluid that digests fats in your stool.
Green
food may be moving through the large intestine too quickly, such as due to diarrhea. As a result, bile doesn't have time to break down completely.
Green leafy vegetables, green food coloring, such as in flavored drink mixes or ice pops, iron supplement. ...Read more

I have dark brown, sticky stools. Also am bulimic. Should I be concerned as it is hard to wipe clean as it is like an frosting consistency?

Bulimia IS a concern: Whether you've been Dx'd or just see it as a problem - it should be corrected as the effects can be serious - see a Eating Disorder therapist! But the stool might be related to foods you eat and/or gluten or lactose intolerance or other conditions. Here's info: http://articles. Mercola. Com/sites/articles/archive/2013/02/14/normal-stool.

When I went to the toilet It was hard to push out and it got a stuck also when I wiped there was blood and there was blood on my stools too?

Prob hemorrhoids: If you're not having any pain in your anus, it probably was a hemorrhoid that got irritated when you strained to have your bowel movement. An anal fissure can also bleed but hurts (like a paper cut down there!)
If you've had hard stool, you should increase your fiber and water intake to keep your stools softer. A laxative may help if you don't get relief with the increased dietary fiber. ...Read more

Normal stool but when I wipe there is small amount of what looks like coffee grounds mixed in on TP last 3 days since small amount is this normal?

It implies there is something causing losing of blood from your stomach or soffit guess. It is important that you get this evaluated as soon as possible before it gets worse.

Why do I have mucus in stool after I wipe stool is always hard?

Why do I have mucus in stool after I wipe stool is always hard?

Needs to be checked: We need more information to advice you. A little mucus in stool some times only on wiping without any other symptoms related to GI tract like abdominal pain, blood in stools, hard stools alternating with loose stools, may be normal and harmless and do no require any treatment normally. But since you are concerned about it, I will recommend you have it checked by your doctor or a gastroenterologist. ...Read more

Does the anus inflate when passing stool, or does it stay the same form so that when you wipe it feels as it would when it is relaxed?

Does the anus inflate when passing stool, or does it stay the same form so that when you wipe it feels as it would when it is relaxed?

Bowel movement: The rectum functions as stool reservoir. As stool being collected in this area, the rectum will be distended to a point of causing you to have urge of bowel movement. Normally, the internal anal sphincter is contracted at rest (when not having bowel movement). When you have urge of bowel movement, the internal sphincter will relax (dilated in a way) for stool evacuation. ...Read more

If you have hemorroids and you notice blood in your stool & see it when you wipe, how do you determine if its the hemorroids or something else?

If you have hemorroids and you notice blood in your stool & see it when you wipe, how do you determine if its the hemorroids or something else?

Look inside: First, hemorrhoids do not typically cause blood "in" the stool. Bright red blood on the toilet paper or a few drops into the toilet would be common but not in the stool. The main this we would want to rule out would be a tumor or cancer, which would be unusual but not rare in a 31 year old. Tumors also usually do not bleed much. There is no reliable home test to tell the difference. ...Read more

For about six months now I have experienced blood in my stool, it's been on and off and only noticeable when I wipe. Last time was worst it's been.

Not normal, get help: Blood in stool is a warning sign. Brisk bleeding warrants emergency care. Causes of bleeding may be predictable (e.G rectal trauma), but evaluation is always appropriate. A rule of thumb (but not absolute): black stool means bleeding comes from upper GI tract; grape jelly stool from small bowel; silver stool from biliary tree; burgundy stool from right colon; red blood from left colon to anus. ...Read more

Constipation: It sounds like you're a little constipated and you might be having some bleeding hemorrhoids or anal fissures. While most causes of blood in the stools are benign, you should get it checked because we worry about uncommon and dangerous things like colon/rectal cancer, especially if you're over 50 or have a family history of colon cancer. ...Read more

Everytime I use the toilet 1-2 balls of stool exit &when I wipe the tissue is covered w/a watery brown (almost mucus like at times)substance. Serious?

Most likely not: This sounds like mucorrhea. This is not serious in of itself but is there any blood? The fact that you have this every time might be related to what you eat or could relate to irritable bowel. I would suggest that you discuss with your doctor so that it can be further defined and make sure you have nothing serious. ...Read more

I have had a lot of problems with my stool for a while now when I wipe I am getting blood some times bright red some times black, never the same stool?

See doctor: You should see a doctor soon. The fact that this is ongoing and changes from red to black means you are continuing to bleed. It could just be hemorrhoids but you never know until you're examined. Bleeding is never normal in the stool and black stool can occur with iron pills and Pepto Bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) but you should still get checked. ...Read more

Need more info: It would be important to know your age. Black specks could be blood. Could be from bleeding somewhere in your colon or a hemorrhoid. It is concerning that you have pain & some constipation. Please see your family physician and see if he/she recommends a colonoscopy or some other test depending on your age & physical exam. ...Read more

Need evaluation: Is the color of your stool a normal brown, or very dark or black? Is it hard to wipe off because it's sticky? If it's dark and sticky, it may be digested blood indicating an ulcer. Have you ever had a colonoscopy? You should call your doctor to be evaluated. ...Read more
