Dear Friend,
As my doctor freind suggested threre are several reason for blood to appear in stool, but most common couses like haemorroides, fissure or any infections must be ruled out. This can be done by a surgeon by a clinical examination. If after a detailed clinical examination, the couse of bleeding is still not clear then colonoscopy must be done.
