I have a blood clot or tissue and bleeding in stool. I noticed a tissue piece a few days back almost before 4 to 5 days. I notice twice and bledding was only once. The blood color was normal and I have minor pain below my belly button. I do not have irritation or redness around anus.



I welcome you to icliniq.

Well the findings you described suggest that you have hemorrhoids/piles. Since hemorrhoids can occur as sole cause (primary mostly due to constipation or excessive force while passing stools) or a menifestation of an other disorder called as secondary hemorrhoids. Since I do not have more information about rest of your health: such as constipation, diarrhea, forceful stool evacuation, change in weight or decrease in appetite, any family history of abdominal cancers, and some more information that is essential; before I can comment whether it is primary or secondary hemorrhoids!.

The tissue you feel is basically distended blood vessel. The hemorrhoids have 4 grades-1 to 4, it is probably grade 2 or 3 which are often palpable at the time of passing stools. Treatment for now till you provide more information:

1. avoid constipation. take isabgol husk 2 table spoon full with water daily

2. tab daflon 500 mg twice daily for 5 days

3. avoid giving excessive pressure while passing stool for pain you can apply Xylocain gel 2% 4 to 6 hourly for 5 days.

I hope this will help you for now. good day
