Blood in your stool? This is what it might be due to and how you can test yourself at home

People can have various reasons for finding blood in their stool. It can be a sign of a disease or injury in the intestine, such as hemorrhoids, diverticulitis, or colon cancer. The blood could also result from inflammation or irritation in the rectum or anus.

Dark blood may indicate that it comes from the lower part of the intestine, while red blood more often suggests a problem in the upper part of the intestine or stomach. If you notice blood in your stool, you should contact a doctor for an examination.

How to detect blood in your stool

It can be detected in many ways. First, you might notice pain in the anus when you defecate. Then that the blood has a redder shade. This means you have a crack in the anus, which can be completely harmless. However, very often, no blood is visible in the stool because it's such a small amount. What you can do in that case is to test your stool with a blood test.

A so-called Stool Blood Test is easy to perform in the comfort and privacy of your home. The test looks for red blood cells in your stool and detects even the slightest trace of blood in your stool.
