Yes.: Yes. You need to see a doctor for this right away. It may be something as simple as hemorrhoids, but it could also be much more serious.

Though it often stops on its own, bleeding from the bowel can sometimes become very severe and can even be life threatening. If it does stop, that does not mean that the underlying problem is gone, so you should see a doctor even if this goes away by itself. ...Read more
