Blood in Stool
Hi
I have seen really red blood in my stools a few times in the last month. I know I should go to the doctor but it keeps on going away and being fine. It has probably happened about once a week but with that I prob only have a bowel movement every 2nd day.
I have had no pain and it has been very random. What should I do?

It is very important to consult your doctor for a proctoscopy and colonoscopy, as rectal bleeding has to be investigated properly.
