Arieane asks:

Lately, when I use the bathroom, there is sometimes blood -- bright red blood in it. I know that means it's fresh blood. I went to the ER, and they said my white blood cells looked good after they did some lab work. I'm just wondering does that mean its NOT cancer? I hope so. I'm scared, I have a doctor's appointment coming up and I'm supposed to be having a colostomy. What else could they be looking for? Please respond. Thanks.





Dear Arieane,

First of all, you did the right thing by seeking out a real live medical doctor for advice. So many bright young lives have been snuffed out simply because they made the mistake of asking Poonurse for help...

Seriously: white blood cells "looking good" is kind of meaningless in this context. Did they mean the numbers looked good, or are your white cells kind of cute and pretty?

In all truthfulness, Arieane, MOST times in a normal, previously-healthy young person, rectal bleeding is most often due to a hemorrhoid (not always visible on the outside), a fissure (a small split in the anus, again not always visible to you) or other benign process. However, cancer cannot be ruled out except by going in there via a COLONOSCOPY (you said you were having a colostomy, which means diverting the colon to the outside of your body into a bag to collect fecal material -- a pretty drastic cure for rectal bleeding, if you ask me).

Good luck Arieane, and try not to worry. You get cool drugs during a colonoscopy -- I know, I have had three. So at least that part is fun. Let me know how it all goes. I am really, truly sending all the good wishes of PoopReport to you.

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

-- Poonurse

Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.

Got a question for her?

I have been having bright red blood visible when I wipe for a very long time now. I never thought much of it purely because of the fact that it only appears when I wipe(not on underwear) and because I feel no pain whatsoever. I came here in curiosity but these posts have me concerned. Should I seek medical attention? I haven't in a couple years and I feel fine. Also I don't poo as often as I should. But I could change the frequency without consulting a doctor.

Yesterday I had a pain in my stomach and today I had to do number two and with that came out blood what should I do.

Hey earlier today i kinda had a weird sharp pain down in my insides then a few hours later when i pooped there was a little blood on the poop what could have caused this? I have had blood on my poop in the past but like this time it was only a little and it has only happened a few times and at least 3 months between happening?

If you're peeing blood go get it checked out asap most likely bladder cancer and can turn deadly very fast.

Dear little AC,

Your problem has been discussed many times in the comments above. Perhaps you should go back and read a few of them.

In the meantime what are your plans for your iPod, cellphone, and other valuables, just in case of the worst?

I'm pretty sure that puberty has nothing to do with a bleeding butt. When in doubt about any health issue or physical abnormality you should always play it safe and see a doctor.

My 12 year old son said yesterday that when wiping his bottom he can see blood on the toilet paper, is this something which we should go to the doctor for? Or is ıt puberty or some other small thing?

If he's crazy enough to ask a poop humor for help for his son's bleeding digestive tract, I imagine that he'd do the same for himself.

I want to believe that he doesn't have health insurance or is joking.

Makes one wonder what Anon Dad would do if it was his own poop that was bloody...?

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

My 5 year old son went to use the bathroom like always and asked me to wipe his butt. But as I looked down I saw a long piece of poop with bright red blood at the end of it. And when I wipe him it was some more blood. I am scared what should I do? And will he be ok?

Let's see here, reagan... you say it hurts when you poop, and during the painful pooping you freely drip dark red blood, but you "don't like the idea" of a medical doctor--who has been thru 12 years of higher education which thoroughly trained him to work with all parts of the human anatomy--looking at your fanny?

Yes, you need to get examined. At both ends.

...ok... when i go #2 it hurts REALLY bad. so bad, that i avoid going when i know i have to.. i DO have a hemroid. (im pretty sure atleast) that i've had for goin on 2 months. i don't know how to make it go away or make it less painful to go to the restroom. yet.... i have DARK RED blood. that drips. (fast dripping) and clots when i wipe. i look down and the entire bowl of water is RED not pink (which you'd think it would be pink mixed with all that water) and i don't like the idea of being exposed in front of ANYONE. i don't even where a bikini in public.. do i need to get examined? does this sound like it could be a big problem? is there anything that i may be able to do to stop all this bleeding, make it less painful to go to the restroom, or heal this hemroid????

noname's picture

hmm well.. sometimes i feel constipated. never used to get like this before. i think my metabolism slowed down or something because after i would eat everytime i'd have to poo and it was always easy to. and now i hardly have to and it freakes me out to be honest. but when i do poo i push a little bit. there's no pain or any blood but one time i felt down there and felt a bump and i looked in the mirror and saw a bump it blended with my skin it didnt hurt it was just there it still comes out but still doesnt hurt or any blood. but after i poo it disappears. what is this? i dont believe i have hemrroids. but idk. nothing pops outta my anus and it doesnt seem to be blocked by anything. i never find blood on toliet paper or ever have any severe pain. just feel constipated at times and uncomfortable.

I gotten sick on Wednesday night and i thought i had a stomach ache, but them recently I've been going to bathroom a lot and recently when I poop it all comes out like liquid. I thought I had diarrhea, but i eaten less and i had blood come out when I poop. To me it was like pinkish red. Do I need to check this out

Anonymous Coward's picture

You know...I also have this problem, and after reading this post for about 30 seconds... I realized the only half fucking smart thing to do is go to the doctor... why is everybody still asking what to do? are you that dumb people omfg.. if your ass is bleeding go to the doctor, its embarrassing to talk about but its better than having life threatening symptoms from it.. grow a fucking brain people after reading the first 5 comments you should already know to go to the doc.. durka durka..

Lizzy ... You probably are just bleeding from hemorrhoids but you can't be too safe so have your parents take you to see your doctor. You are covered by NHS and it isn't going to cost you anything. I wish you a happy outcome and you really need to put some more fiber (fibre) in your diet. Eat like Jamie Oliver recommends
and you will be a healthy young lady with a bum that does it's job without bleeding.

I've been bleeding from my bum and it's very embarrassing and I'm 13 normal weight and I know I don't get enough fibre but it started months ago. I bled just a bit on the toilet paper and I know that was definitely not serious and I'm not constipated and also the other day it happened again. But today I woke up in the morning and I felt wet and it was blood from my bum it's been bleeding for about an hour I don't know if it's stopped I haven't checked but and it's not of going to the toilet and there's no pain at all and the blood is red so it's not bleeding from the inside please help.

Just wondering what this could be... When I wipe there is blood on the toilet paper but not really any blood in my stool? What could this be?

I have been losing blood from my bum since I can remember. When I was 16 because my period was messed up doctor thought I was pregnant but I wasn't so they did more tests, I had to get rushed into hospital and I had to have a blood transfusion. I had 4 pints put in me as I only had 3 pints of blood. Doctor said to me he doesn't understand how I could of survived with only 3 pints. I was very lucky to be alive. Anyway I had a camera down my throat and up my bum but nothing was found. I was put as a out patient and had the camera every now and again and had to take iron tablets. Still till this day I still loose blood and still don't know why, I am 25 years old now. I have to go for check ups every 3/4months to check my blood to see if I need another blood transfusion. They must be a reason why I loose all this blood for so many years and its really got to me, can anyone help me??

Seriously... If pooping makes you bleed, or you have bloody/mucus-y poop, or you've been diagnosed with some nasty digestive disorder, or you seem to have fecal breath and/or body odor...

You can heal yourself with food.

It is a lifetime of incorrect food choices, coupled with inherited damage from previous generations' deficient feeding habits, that has caused all of your current health problems. Happily, even those inherited deficiencies can be overcome by you with food.

Here's what's missing from the daily diet of every single person asking for help here: fresh fruits and non-starchy vegetables. If you're getting any at all on a daily basis, it's not near enough in relation to everything else you're eating, as evidenced by your poop problems.

Another food habit that specifically contributes to bad poop and digestive disorders is eating carbs (starchy or sweet foods) in the same meal together with animal proteins (eggs, meat, cheese). We do this every day, most of us more than once a day, and it reeks havoc on our insides in multiple ways.

For some of us, this damage is expressed as dreadful digestive disorders and pronounced poop problems; for others it is expressed in other ways that don't seem so easily related to the food we eat, such as headaches, fatigue, asthma, allergies, anxiety, mental fog, inflammations, unexplained aches/pains, etc.

Make no mistake: every single health problem we suffer starts first with our own deficient eating habits. And, therefore, they can all be healed by correcting those eating habits.

The very first step should be to stop eating carbs and proteins together. Making this one change to your daily diet can almost instantly restore normal digestion and poop quality, and will stop the anal bleeding.

Beyond that, try slowly increasing your daily intake of fresh fruits and non-starchy veggies while decreasing consumption of all other foods. Here are some suggestions:

    Eat fruit for breakfast... Replace your usual snacks with raw fresh fruits (with whipped cream OK) or raw non-starchy vegetables (with creamy dip OK too!)... Eat fruit as a first course before lunch or dinner... Increase the size and number of your non-starchy veggie side items, and reduce other item quantities... Replace lunch or dinner each day with a large salad meal...

Try incorporating one of the above changes each week until most or all are included in your daily feeding habits. The ultimate goal is to eat 4 servings of fresh fruits and non-starchy vegetables for every single serving of anything else each day. This is what your body needs to be able to fully heal itself and maintain the best health possible.

It takes 3 solid months of eating at 4:1 to completely reverse most health problems, but ANY increase in fresh fruits and non-starchy veggies coupled with decreased consumption of other foods will allow the healing processes to begin; full healing will simply take longer. How long depends on how far from 4:1 you eat, how much protein and processed foods you consume, and how often you continue to eat carbs in the same meal with proteins.

Please read the book linked below for more information.

For th those of you under the age of 18, go to your local health department. They can set you up wiht a doctor free of charge. For those of you over the age of 18, with low income they can also set you up with a doctor for either free or for a very low cost. It depends on your state, your city, and your situation. But most times they can line you up with a free clinic or have their own doctor there on site.

As per the 12-14 year olds, why you feel thatyou cannot tell your mothers or parents is CRAZY. I have a 12 year of my own who tells me everything and after reading this i am very happy to know she does. But you bing 12, 13, or 14 are at a developmental stage and should be at your peditrician. If you are in a bad situation, if your being hurt physically or emotionally or sexually then it's time to get that out in the open, but you are not truly a teenager yet! And you are not responible for yourself yet eiher.

As for the 16 year old, honey if your already giving up anal you possibly could have have genital warts but on you butthole. And you think somewhere down the road you find enough self respect for yourself not to have sex (anal, oral, normal) at 16 with teh chance of getting pregnant. And dont give me no jack about birth contorl, condoms, shots, b/c I was on the birth control, had the depo shot, and we were using condoms and I still got pregnant and I still got genital warts from the grease ball. But you need to re-evaluate and consider that since you are having sex that you could have an STD.

I too poo with lots of red blood, mucousy blood, and coffee grounds. But I'm scheduled for an colonoscopy after the holiday. Because mine has gotten so bad I have to wear a pad, and I've had a hysterectomy. But it truly curls my toenails to hear about little kids having this issue and not getting the help they need and deserve. Or the 16 year old who i) s having promiscus sex (anally) and finally is realizing she has a problem.

The blood pours out, sometimes accompanied by small bits of fecal matter. There is pain, always pain. There are tears, always tears.
The Doctor, I can not trust him.
Please help.

i've experienced a similar problem. i'm 21, male, relatively healthy, possibily just a few pounds overweight.

my diet is far from perfect but i definately dont eat too much junk food at all as i'm recently trying to lose some weight. the one major problem with my diet i believe is that i dont drink enough glasses of water daily. especially lately i've been spamming diet soda (coke zero/diet coke) as i'm trying to quit the regular stuff and limit my sugar intake.

i brought this up to my family doctor during my last physical and he immediately said it was hemmroids, which from what i understand is not an uncommon thing in people at all. nor is it serious.

there is no blood present anywhere except on the tissue. its fresh and appears to stop bleeding immediately. also it doesn't appear to be a lot of blood. possibily a ml or 2? everything else looks as it has since i can remember, perfectly normal.

it also is accompanied by a few more symptoms of hemmeroids on occasion (itchyness, mild discomfort). it also stops and starts although i havent really paid enough attention to notice a pattern.

anyone have a second opinion or would we all be in agreeance with my family doctor?

dee and vic's picture

first off, if you are young, even if scarred, always tell a parent that you are in need of a doctor, serious stuff can happen every day in life, and life is too important to play around with your ass, no punn intended...second off, my hubby and i are sitting here looking for a clue as to why i had blood when i wiped, before i go to the doc....i guess we learned a little more than planned by seeing this site...last year i had a full hystorectomy, i was so scared it was cancer due to physical issues, but ended up just having nerf football size ovries filled with cysts that were all benign, so do ever think the worst, but take it in all seriousnes because not every outcome is perfect..but you should go find out before something happens, have you ever seen a 1,000 ways to die...the shitter can kill you...ps...dont ever comsume alcohol through the rectum...

Dear scared.....In my opinion the whipping could have caused bleeding if it was a severe whipping, perhaps if you try wiping after your next #2 you will fare better. In the meantime you could read the dozens of comments above yours that address this issue.

Bright red blood is usually not a sign of anything serious but you should have it checked by a doctor anyway. Even a GP has a device that can be stuck up the old butthole a short distance for a quick look around. It feels like the Hubble telescope when it goes in but the doc can give you instant results. Your problem may be fixed with something as simple as a few suppositories. Good luck.

I also have the same problem I am 21 now but was diagnoised with ulterative colitis at 17 My first colonoscopy showed i had colits but at 21 I just went to a new doctor that gave me another colonoscopy which came back not having anything wrong that he could see which i think i weird. I started seeing blood in my stool after getting pregnet and then all of a sudden it stopped 7months later (now)i am seeing the same problem i go to the bathroom and wipe and see alittle blood everytime It is very scary and i am looking for some kind of answers to help me feel alittle better im hoping its just hemmoriods but i just dont know and the doctor didnt see anything in the colonoscopy and 2 others noticed the last 5in of colon were where i am having problems . Do anyone have any advise should i go to the doctor again? could it be hemmorids its bright red blood and all my test and blood count are normal I am just sick of not knowing what is really going on.

I dont poop very often but when I do, after I poop and i wipe, if i look at the toilet paper, there is usually blood there and no poop. If i wipe again there is no blood or anything. My mom wants to make me go to the doctor.. but i dont want to go. What could it be? Could it be cancer or worse? Im only 15 so I dont want to go to the doctor for something stupid like that.

I had a colonoscopy yesterday! I have IBS Irritable Bowel Syndrome (Or Spastic Colon). The blood was coming from my anal mucosa - Straining when going to the loo. Either hard stools or even a running tummy can cause this.
Must drink Fybogel after supper every night until stools feel normal and then i have to drink the fybogel every 2nd or 3rd night to keep the stools normal to avoid straining WHICH CAN CAUSE PILES!!!!!

So to all you BUTT Bleeders go and have it checked. Trust me you going to sleep better at night once you know what is going on.

GOOD LUCK!!!

So having my GP's finger up my anus was not the most pleasant feeling. He however could not find the problem, He went as far as checking my vagina for blood (Making sure I was not maybe bleeding from there) As if I would not know the difference . So now he is sending me to a specialist as he feels I need to have a colonoscopy done. I was so hoping for piles. At least I know how to fix that. Waiting to find out when my appointment is. As soon as I have had it done I will let you all know what the outcome is.

In the meantime to all of you bleeding out of your anus GO TO A DOCTOR ASAP...... This is not something you should ignore. You body is trying to tell you that something is wrong and if detected early enough it can be fixed.

Good luck to all of you!!!!!
