Cancer: Three red flags when going to the toilet often ignored by men – expert’s warning

While bloody urine may be indicative of cancer, it also has associations with a host of other conditions.

Bloody stool, on the other hand, may offer precise clues about the organs affected.

Dark red, or maroon stool, however, is often a sign that there is bleeding higher up in the colon of the small bowel.
