A:   Presence of blood in stools may be due to hemorrhoids or anal fissure. You must consult your doctor to evaluate the bleeding. An anoscopy may be required to determine the site of the bleed.
Treatment of hemorrhoids may include conservative treatment with lifestyle modifications. You to try warm sitz baths, lubricant cream like anusol, and a stool softener in case you have hard stools to help heal the hemorrhoid. Surgical removal involving band ligation and stapling of the hemorrhoids is done in severe cases.
