Treatments for Blood in the Stool:
Treatment plans for blood in the stool are individualized depending on the underlying disease, disorder or condition, the presence of coexisting diseases and complications, the age and medical history of the patient, and other factors.
The prognosis for people with blood in the stool varies depending on the prognosis of the underlying disease, disorder or condition. Some of these conditions are very serious and include colorectal cancer and peptic ulcer.
With early diagnosis and treatment and a well integrated, multifaceted, medically monitored plan of care, blood in the stool can be resolved in many cases. A good treatment plan is individualized to a person's medical history, associated diseases and other factors.
Some common causes of blood in the stool, such as hemorrhoids, anal fissures, rectal abscesses or constipation can often be effectively treated with relatively simple measures. These may include changes in diet, drinking lots of water, exercise, suppository medications, increasing fiber in the diet, pain medication, and/or minor outpatient surgical procedures.
Other causes of having blood in the stool, such as colorectal cancer or perforated peptic ulcers need more intensive treatment. This may involve hospitalization, multiple oral or intravenous medications, chemotherapy, radiation, and/or more major surgical procedures.
