Hello,

Thanks for the query.

There are many cause of such rectal bleed and bleed can occur from different sites of GIT. the usual causes are anal fissure,haemorroids,polyps, colitis/proctitis and cancer. Even blood coagulations and some medications can cause such bleeding.

Before treatment is started cause and site of the bleed has to determined and then only a specific treatment can be proposed. usually treatment is directed towards stopping bleeding and preventing rebleeding.

If sometimes bleeding is chronic then one may need evaluation for hemoglobin. I think most likely cause in your case is bleeding through lower GIT as blood is fresh after passing stool.

I strongly suggest you to get a clinical evaluation done by a doctor, who will locate site of bleed and its likely cause. Investigations like proctoscopy, colonoscopy ,sonogram and scan may also be needed. The issue can be serious if the bleeding increase or leads to anemia.


I hope I have been helpful to you, Please ask if there are any doubts.

Thank you. Regards

Ideal way to know this would be to get a sperm analysis done.

Don't know if symptoms are tied together but here goes. Over the last year my vision in my left eye has become a little blurred. I also have developed some blood when I have a bowel movement. The blood is mostly on the tissue and not in the stool but only happens once a month. I over heard some people talking about someone else with the same symptoms and they had said that it was a form of liver disease/cancer. Is there truth to this? Do my symptoms fit or are they two completely separate issues? I'm being treated now for hemorrhoids and have an eye appointment scheduled. The treatment for the hemroids did not work and I have to set up another appointment.
