Blood in the stools, can it be a alarming symtom for cancer ?
My fathter is 67 yrs, first time when he got blood in the stools we thought its due to some dysentry, as he also had loose stools at that time. now with out loose stools also he gets blood not more amount only few drops with stools, can it be a alarming symtom for cancer ?
Hi. Please consult a surgeon asap so that he can have a look and determine if it is piles or something else....rest of the treatment can be discussed after that. Do not worry as at this age it is piles can be common. Advise him to take a high fibre diet and avoid straining during defaecation.
