What does blood in the stool mean?
Question: My son is 22, he ate something that really upset his tummy and had to really strain while going number 2 many times. he started to bleed red blood. I have had this problem before and it was caused by a hemoroid. I changed diet for a few days and it stopped bleeding and only comes back when i really upset my tummy. I gave him the same advice but he has not stopped bleeding and its been a while. I am thinking he might have a little tear that is not healing. Ideas???? What type of doctor does he need to see about this?
