Reasons for Blood in Stool?

If you find blood in your stool it could be caused from something very benign like a small tear while straining to have a bowel movement to something more major such as tumors. If it has only happened one time then you need to just watch and see if it occurs again, you may want to try a stool softener first. If it continues you need to go to the doctor and have your blood levels checked and other exams may be necessary to diagnosis the problem.
