Brief Answer: Presence of blood requires investigation Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing in XXXXXXX The report has to be correlated to symptoms if there are any. Presence of XXXXXXX blood suggests a local cause in the region of the anus. Common causes are 1. fissure in ano 2. piles. 3. malignancy. The correct approach would be to get yourself examined by a general surgeon in order to ascertain the source of blood. The examination should include digital examination followed by proctoscopic examination.If these are negative then a colonoscopy would be advisable. I hope this answers your doubt. Regards
