I have had constipation with streaks of blood and white ribbon like stuff that looks like guts. Stool is hard and in round ball shapes. Is it serious?

Get a colonoscopy!: Constipation is often a symptom of other conditions in your body or your diet. See your physician and schedule a colonoscopy promptly. Polyps, tumors, ulcers, diverticulosis, hemorrhoids all can cause bleeding and will be seen during a colonoscopy.
