Hello,

Most possible reason for fresh blood in stool is fissure, hemorrhoid or other.

Convince him to get physical examination with a consultant surgeon and get treated in accordance to the diagnosis rather than scared.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel
