BLOOD IN STOOL

DEAR DOC

EVERY NOW AND AGAIN MY PARTNER COMPLAINS OF BLOOD IN HIS STOOL AND FROM HIS ANUS. WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSE OF THIS. HE IS 31 NOW, AND HAS NOT GONE FOR A PROSTRATE CHECK WHICH I ADVISED HIM ON. HE IS SCARED IT COULD BE CANCER. IT DOES NOT HAPPEN ALL THE TIME, BUT I WOULD SAY AT LEAST 2 TIMES A MONTH.
THANK YOU

Dear Lucy Loo
Any bleeding from the anus can be a sign of something serious like cancer but most of the time it is caused by hemorroids. I really think he should let your GP have a look just to make sure?
