Bowel cancer warning: What colour is your poo? Signs to watch out for in the toilet


    But, just because you find blood in your stools, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have bowel cancer.

    A small amount of one-off blood isn’t usually caused by anything serious, said the NHS.

    It may be caused by gastroenteritis, a bowel polyp, piles, or an anal fissure.

    You should, however, dial 999 straight away if you find a lot of blood. For example, if the toilet water has turned completely red.
