I have blood in my stool, what could cause this. I also have a cough I cannot get rid if. Could they be related. ?

In brief: Blood in the stool

Blood in the stool can be from hemorroids, colon polyps, inflammatory bowel disease, or colon cancer.
You should see a gastroenterologist and have colonoscopy done to find out the cause of blood in stool.Cough has no relationship with blood in stool.
