Why do I get blood in my stools?
Q: I am a 35 years old man. I got my stools tested recently. The report reveals red blood cell (RBC) as 2-3/hpf and faecal occult blood was found to be positive. Are these conditions due to any infection or any other reason? I don't have any stomach pain but get acidity. The ultrasound of general abdomen showed fatty liver. Please advise.
A:These tests indicate that you have blood in your stools. There are several causes for this, from piles, infection to cancer. The best approach is to get a colonoscopy so that the exact cause can be determined.
