I have been diagnosed with liver cancer and I am currently undergoing chemo and treatment for the cancer. I passed blood in my stools yesterday. What does this mean?

The liver is separate from the bowel. If the liver biopsy showed liver cancer, or if this is colon cancer that has spread to the liver, you should have a colonoscopy to find out the cause of the bleeding, if it cannot be explained by hemorrhoids or other problems in the rectal area.
