Why is there blood in stool?
Rectal bleeding is among the majority of humans today. In most cases, rectal bleeding is just a symptom of some other disease such as piles. It is strictly advised to the patients to not avoid signs such as painful bowel movements and blood in stool and consult a medical expert to the soonest. In most cases, blood in stool is a reason for piles or anal fissure.
Blood vessels in the anus and towards the anal opening swell up due to prolonged hours of constantly sitting on hard chairs. This causes pain and itching in and around the anus and anal opening. It causes painful bowel movements and blood is very often seen in the stool.
What is Piles?
Inflammation or swelling of veins, blood vessels, tissues, etc around the rectum and anal region is called hemorrhoids or piles. Piles are pretty common in pregnancy. Due to the weight of a child in the womb, a lot of strain and pressure is exerted on the rectum and anal region. This leads to swollen veins. Piles are also common among people who have an office or sitting jobs. This puts pressure on the rectum region for a long and continuous period. Eating unhealthy, oily, spicy food, not eating a fiber-rich diet and keeping the body dehydrated by drinking less water leads to the formation of hard stool and contributes to the formation of piles.
The patient can feel a hard, painful lump in the anus in the later stages of piles. Because of this, the anal area becomes very sensitive and is itchy, irritated and may have redness or swelling. There can also be a risk of infections around the anal area. The patient can even have blood in the stool in adverse stages of the disease. There is a pain at the time of bowel movements. There may also be slight or more mucus discharge during bowel movements.
