blood in poop

Has anyone ever had blood in their poop? Was it anything serious? I think it may be due to constipation and hard stools, but I'm not sure. It's bright red blood, so it looks fresh. The problem is for my husband, and I'm worried.

  • I was gonna say what Steff said. I've always heard that if it's internal, the poop will be black. He could have a tear in his rectum too. It's probably not too much to worry about, but if it persists, I'd call or go to the Dr.

  • Hemorrhoids. If he has hard stool its roids for sure. They hurt like a biotch! Bright red is hemorrhoids, dark brown blood is internal.

  • if hes not in pain i wouldn't worry if he is straining when he poops then try to drink some more fluids see if that helps. if not go see a doc. better safe than sorry

  • it could be something or nothing. blood in stool is not a good thing so just have him get checked out. not trying to scare you but 1 sign for colon cancer is blood in the stool. just get it checked, better to be safe than sorry.
