In brief: Many causes of blood

There are many causes of blood in the stool, ranging from benign to malignant (cancer).
Bloody stools can be caused by hemorrhoids, colitis, diverticulosis, colon cancer, and more. If a person has blood in his or her stool, it should be checked out by a doctor soon. Having a lot of blood or active bleeding from the rectum is considered an emergency.
