I was going to the toilet, and I have loose bowels but after

Customer Question

I was going to the toilet, and I have loose bowels but after when I was done passing bowels there was a pool of blood in the water, the blood is in fresh red colour. I have had a bloated anus a few days ago, which I suspect to be a haemorrhoid. Is the blood caused by a haemorrhoid or something else. Is there a chance of cancer? I have had this fresh blood situation before but recovered.

Dr. K. :

Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

Hi there, its very likely that this is a hemorrhoid. You are only 20 and cancer would be very rare.

Dr. K. :

A small amount of blood in the toilet when mixed with water can look like a large amount

Dr. K. :

You should see your GP who can examine you and determine if this is a hemorrhoid and can treat you for it.

Customer:

Right

Customer:

Customer:

Customer:
