Since last 2-3 days one of my friend is seeing blood during stool. The color of blood is reddish. And its coming besides the residual part, not with the poo. She is 23 years old. No digestion problem as such. No symptoms like dizziness or weakness. Please suggest.

Hello.. Common cause of bleeding from the rectal region is haemorrhoid or fissure.... You say there are no symptoms... It quite possible that there might be injury to the mucosa while passing stools.. Like when you strain.... It's better you consult a surgeon and get examined.. Thank you
