Malignant diseases can also bleed, such as rectal cancer and colon cancer.Early rectal cancer blood in the stool may be bright red, and it may become dark red in the later stage, and other symptoms will appear with other symptoms.After the rectum is blocked by the tumor, the stool will become thinner, and some patients will feel anal falling. They can’t tell whether there is a stool.Early colon cancer bleeding may not be obvious. Routine stools will be found to be positive. At this time, it should be paid attention.
There are also some rare diseases that cause blood in the stool:
For example, the colon family polyps have a lot to do with inheritance. It is rare and can cause blood in the stool. The stool is dark red. As the number of stools increases, blood and stool are mixed;
For example, amoeba dysentery, mucus -like jelly -like stools are dark red. Routine stools will find that amoebim nourishment will be found in the stool;
