Can you please tell me more about what's going on?

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
please respond
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 26 days ago.

I understand

Have you had any tests or studies to evaluate this?

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
nothing
Customer: replied 26 days ago.
i was scared when it was bleeding
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 26 days ago.

The usual cause for the bleeding is hemorrhoids and that's not too serious

But the changing stool combined with that may be an indication of a bacterial colon infection or inflammatory bowel disease like ulcerative colitis

So you need to see a doctor for this as soon as you can and I would do an exam, blood work, stool culture and a colonoscopy to see exactly what the problem is

Please let me know if you need any more information

That sounds like a bacterial infection or possibly irritable bowel syndrome but not cancer
