In most cases, bright red blood indicates bleeding in the lower colon or rectum, while darker red blood is a sign of bleeding in the small bowel or upper colon. Very dark or black-red blood is often associated with bleeding in the stomach or other organs in the digestive system.
Beside above, what does bright red blood mean when you wipe?
Bright red blood usually means bleeding that’s low in your colon or rectum. Dark red or maroon blood can mean that you have bleeding higher in the colon or in the small bowel. Melena (dark and tar-like stool) often points to bleeding in the stomach, such as bleeding from ulcers.
