Can kidney stones cause blood in the stool?
I am a 42-year-old male. I have had blood in my stool the last couple of times I have gone. It was only a little the first time, but this last one it was more, including on toilet paper. I must add that I have had heavy stool both times that I have had to strain to push out, so I’m hoping that was the cause. After a few wipes, the blood was gone. I must also add that I have a large kidney stone that I have yet to be removed, but I don’t know if that can be connected?
@duranga hello, Any time you see blood in the stool, it should be checked, it could be nothing, but then again, it could be polyps that can develop into cancer. Normally, kidney stones cause symptoms such as pressure and pain in your lower back, fever, frequent urination, discomfort urinating, and bloody or discolored urine. However, sometimes kidney stones can cause gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and stomach discomfort. Rectal bleeding is a symptom of conditions like hemorrhoids, anal fissures, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), ulcers, and colorectal cancer. Typically, you notice rectal bleeding on toilet paper, in the water of the toilet bowl, or in your stool. please, get this checked, it is very important for your health now. Thanks!
