Common symptom: Your symptoms are common, and I suspect you may have hemorrhoids. Even if you are not having pain, you can still have hemorrhoids which can be irritated when you have a bowel movement and can cause bright red bleeding in your stool. You should share these symptoms with your regular PCP. An in office exam can provide a quick easy answer, and provide you with treatment options if needed.
