A member asked:

Can bright red blood with feces on tp after wiping loose stools, be anything to worry about, could this have anything to do with gallbladder?

Yes, certainly it is something to worry about. I would recommend seeing a gastroenterologist. Mostly commonly it could be due to hemorrhoids or diverticulosis but other causes such as a crohn’s colitis, colon cancer and ulcerative colitis can also cause this condition. Cancer of the duct of gall bladder can rarely cause bleeding in stool but it’s usually occult bleeding
