Blood after bowel movement. Causes?
Hi, This may be due to hemorrhoids or an anal fissure which would be bright red blood. It may be due to diverticular in the bowel which are small bulges in the lining of the bowel which can bleed. It may be due to a growth in the bowel so it is important you see your doctor for tests. Regards, Dr K A Pottinger, MBChB FRCA
