Hematochezia, how to do?

Blood from time to time in stool, is it what’s situation?


If a middle-aged friend has hematochezia during diarrhea, the first consideration is the mucosal damage in the intestinal canal caused by gastroenteritis (including acute gastroenteritis, bacillary dysentery, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, etc.), which will lead to hemorrhage.

The elderly and some middle-aged people:

There is no pain in the stomach, but blood should be on high alert when defecating.

The elderly are prone to digestive tract malignant tumors, which are generally manifested as no stomachache, but hematochezia may occur from time to time.

At this time, colorectal endoscopy should be performed in time to clarify the cause of hematochezia and eliminate hematochezia caused by benign diseases such as hemorrhoids and anal fissure.

Is sudden massive hematochezia a what situation?

(1) When a large amount of hematochezia is accompanied by anal tear-like pain, it may be a large amount of hematochezia caused by anal fissure. Its blood is bright red and occasionally drips of blood occur.

(2) It may also be gastrointestinal tumor rupture and hemorrhage, or acute gastrointestinal necrosis and hemorrhage.

In general, anal fissure hemorrhage can be relieved by itself, while gastrointestinal tumor rupture hemorrhage and acute gastrointestinal necrosis hemorrhage are at great risk and cannot stop bleeding by themselves. Once it occurs, active treatment must be carried out, otherwise it will pose a threat to the patient’s life.

What about hematochezia?

Hematochezia has two different manifestations: blood and black stool.

Both forms of hematochezia may have serious problems. It is suggested that no matter which kind of situation, you should seek medical treatment first. At the very least, ask a doctor to conduct a routine stool examination to find out the cause and eliminate serious problems.
