Our expert says:
Blood in stools has to be investigated as soon as possible and I therefore, suggest that you consult your doctor for a referral to have a colonoscopy done, to determine the cause for the blood in your stools. The reason for the blood in your stools, can be due to a mere tear due to constipation or due to something more serious, like colon rectal cancers. There are many likely causes and it will therefore have to be investigated with special tests.
