my son is having blood in his bowel movements. just started 24hrs ago.. he is still experiencing it. i told him that his hemorrhoids could be internal, not out. He said he doesnt feel any on his anus.
Could there be anything else wrong with him. He eats a lot of hot foods, sauses, and drinks quite a bit of liquor. He also smokes cigars and cigarettes. His age is 29 and soon to be 30 in 12 days..
Can u help.. email me at [email address removed as per guidelines]

I agree with the previous poster. Your son should see a doc. Any wpdates?

Dear Anonymous,

While your son MAY have internal hemorrhoids if he strains a lot to go to the bathroom and is frequently constipated, blood in the stool is not something to go based on assumptions. He needs to find a Gastroenterologist and have a physical exam. The doctor will be able to tell him immediately whether or not this is or can be caused by hemorrhoids and whether he may need further testing such as a Colonoscopy or Endoscopy.

Although I am not a doctor one thing I can tell you is that if the blood or his stool are dark, it is not caused by hemorrhoids. Excessive drinking and smoking are also a red flag for the GI/GU doctor and he may want to look further into the bleeding.


Best Wishes,
