I have noticed in my today's stool some tiny red spots that are solid. Had tomatoes few days ago and also noticed a piece of undigested tomato. I am worried its blood. Can it be blood ? I have been suffering from health anxiety for years and each day i am worried that i have a different type of cancer. Is that blood ? It makes me crazy i cant think anymore

    I don't think it's blood. If you were bleeding internally it would be black and sticky. If you had bleeding from a hemorrhoid it would be red. It's black tary stools that are worrisome. You should make a appointment with your doctor and get a complete physical, to put your mind at ease.

      Thank you for your reply. I would to add that they were very tiny as the head of a needle. I also had symptoms such as flatulence and upset stomach. My doctor said it's nothing to worry about but what i saw today scared me so much

    Tomato skin is harder to digest. I hope that's what it was. I agree with Melinda, you should schedule a Dr's appointment just to be on the safe side

    Try not to worry. Have you been constipated at all?? Sometimes peoplhave a little blood on there stools if it's cut them slightly. It can be as tiny as that and cause blood o the outside of stools.

    May I ask, why you started having anxiety of your health? Did you have a bad health scare? I worry about my health also, I fear I'm going to die. For me it comes from my recurrent pulmonary embolisms. I see a counselor who's been a lot of help. My pulse is always near 100 and numerous doctors have told me my stress/anxiety is slowly killing. It's like having anxiety over anxiety. It's a vicious circle. Don't ignore your mental health, it is important. I know I don't want to live in fear.
