Is Spotting Blood And Worm In Stool An Indication For HIV?

Hi Doctor

I observed weight loss of around 3 kgs recently (i was on diet for 3 months, reduced carbohydrates in take and lot of fiber, very less sugar etc) and was very concerned. I observed blood in my stool and i checked with my doctor, he just had a look at it and said it is piles. 3 months back i have observed a worm in my stool and again recenntly one. I was given dworm tablets. As i was very concerned i got my HIv chekced and it was negative. I started eating normally and i have regained around 1.5 kgs of weight. Should i still be concerned about HIV?

Hello,
Thank you for writing to HCM

Presence of blood in stools may be due to mucosal erosion, haemorroids, or mass such as polyp.
Worms will be present very commonly nowadays due to fastfoods, frozen food, and vegetables which are not properly washed/ pork.
You have to de-worm every 6 months.

Do not worry There is nothing to think about hiv here.
