Hey. yesterday when I went to washroom I found blood in my stool. Wt r the possible reasons n is dere anything to worry?

Hi there. Fresh blood in stool warrants examination by a surgeon for piles or in some cases fissure. After ruling out piles you need to go for lower gastro intestinal scopy. But make sure you get an examination earliest possible as blood loss may lead to anemia. Take care.
