Get Right Diagnosis: Not all rectal bleeding is hemorrhoids! most hemorrhoids (varicose veins of the anus) are soft, squishy tissue that may become more distended or protrude after straining or having a bowel movement. If torn with a bm or anal sex, they can bleed. But so can ulcerative colitis, crohns, benign tumors (polyps), or even cancer! you need to see a GI doc or colorectal surgeon for the right diagnosis.
