Blood in the stool means that bleeding is occurring someplace in your gastrointestinal system. There could be a handful of possible reasons for blood in the stool. Some of the possible causes are not major issues, but it is essential to consult with a GI doctor at Digestive Health Associates of Texas if you are observing bloody stool. When your bowel movement has bright red blood in it, this often suggests an issue in the bottom of the digestive tract, such as the anus or rectum. Dark blood in your bowel movement usually shows that the blood originates in an earlier part of the digestive system, like the stomach, small bowel, or large bowel. We welcome you to get in touch with our digestive health office in Dallas, TX today for assistance with determining the root of this concern.

Blood in a patient's stool may result from a few different causes and can be a sign of a concerning medical concern or condition. A few of the potential reasons for bleeding in one's stool are:

  • Ulcerative colitis

Dr Hall was kind and knowledgeable. I first went to Dr Hall for pain in my abdominal area. He was compassionate and openly listened to my symptoms. The prior doctors I visited dismissed my pain and symptoms. Because Dr Hall took my symptoms seriously, he swiftly diagnosed the traveling gall stones in my pancreas. Once Dr Hall removed the gall stones through minimally invasive surgery, the pain was magically gone. I am very thankful that Dr Hall was so responsive to taking my symptoms seriously.
