Response from Dr. Young

Dear Paul,

Thanks for your post.

If you have repeated episodes of blood in your stools, I'd let your doctor know. This symptom could be the result of something relatively minor (like hemmorrhoids) or an early sign of a more serious condition, like cancer.

Obviously, it's tough to distinguish these possibilities by the internet, so, please, contact your physician for an evaluation.

Good luck, BY

should i start meds or wait
