Could be, but...: The most common cause of bright fresh appearing blood in, or usually around the stool, are inflamed hemorrhoids. Most people have at least small internal hemorrhoids, but don't bleed. It could be an anal fissure, which is a small cut in the anal wall. Drink lots of water and put a hemorrhoidal cream on nightly for a week.. But, any blood that goes beyond once or twice in the stool, see doc.
