Why when I poop I wipe my self I see light pink blood?

See a doctor: Blood in the stool is not normal. It suggests there may be a bleed somewhere in the GI tract but this could be anywhere from your mouth with blood you are swallowing, to your stomach due to an ulcer, to an internal or external hemorrhoid. A physician will be able to examine your stool, and take a complete history to determine which tests and necessary to determine the cause of bleeding. ...Read more

There : There are a couple of possiblities with painful bright red blood with bowel movements. You could have actually developed a anal fissure (tear in the skin) of your anus from the difficult bm. It would look like a rip in the skin. The other possibility is a thrombosed(clotted) external hemorrhoid which would appear as a painful purplish lump on your anus. Either way, a high fiber diet, using medicated wipes (tucks), and avoiding heavy lifting or straining would be beneficial. If pain is not improved, you probably should see your physician or a colorectal surgeon for further evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

First things first: Hemorrhoids are generally easy to treat, but you need to make sure that its the right diagnosis. Other possibilities include colitis and rectal fissure.

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

What happens when you wipe and the tissue is pink but no blood in stool?

Monitor closely: I would recommend that you advise your primary physician of the situation. Since the tissue is pink it may represent a small amount of blood on the paper. This could come from a small tear or hemorrhoid or fissure. Monitor and keep your md informed. If needed he/she will refer you to the appropriate specialist if needed. ...Read more
