Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Blood in stools can be due to many reasons like constipation , obstipation , hemorrhoid s, anal fissures .These are most common.It is really important for you to get this evaluated.I advise you to visit a General surgeon and get examined and further treatment could be based on your detailed history and examination.

Take care.
