Specializes in Colon and Rectal Surgery

Blood is not normal, but it may not be worrisome. However, till you are evaluated you can't know. See a colorectal surgeon, who will be able to differentiate hemorrhoids, fissure, and other potential causes with a specialty exam. Till then, lots of water, high fiber diet.
