Dear XXXX,

Loose stools with leaking and some blood on tissue paper usually can occur due to proctitis (means inflammation in rectum). This can be due to infection or inflammatory bowel disease or radiation ( I see that you did not get any radiation for Ca prostate) or ulcers of any etiology. Sometimes a tumor inside the rectum can also cause similar symptoms.

Best way to find the cause of your problem will be a colonoscopy. I understand that this has been already planned for next week. Hope nothing serious come out.

Best wishes,

Dr Dinesh Singal
