Hemorrhoids: Although hemorrhoids is the most common, many other more serious causes exist. You don't mention your age or sex. Could be colitis, anal fissure, colon tumor among other things. Remember: no amount of rectal bleeding is normal or should be ignored. See your doctor and possibly a colorectal surgeon for a proper evaluation.
