I saw a slight spotting of blood in my stools, does it a symptom of piles or just a body heat?

As you must be aware, this condition generally results from straining to pass stools, as when constipated. diarrhea, chronic Constipation, pregnancy, aging, and anal intercourse can also cause this condition. Hemorrhoids may be internal or external, which means inside the anus, or around the anus and under the skin.
