It depends : If blood in the stool is red, it may be from a hemorrhoid. This needs to be evaluated and treated, but is fairly common. If the blood or stool is darker (black) and has a 'tar-like' appearance, it is more indicative of a bleed in the upper areas of the GI tract. This is more significant and needs more prompt evaluation and treatment. Seek evaluation by a qualified professional asap to differentiat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
There is a painful mass in my rectum that I can feel when I have a bowel movement. Is it more likely to be cancer or a hemorrhoid?
I sometimes have rectal pains after a bowel movement ; maybe spasms? Is this normal? Had normal colonoscopy 7 yrs ago. No family history of cancer.

It's usually painful, and can be associated with bleeding. I suggest you speak with your doctor, who may refer you to a general or colorectal surgeon for an exam.

Green stools: There are many things that can cause stools to be green but the basic cause is the food is passing to quickly thur the intestines. Normally bile makes stool green at the start and a normal transit time lets the stool go from green to yellow to brown. Google green stools and see if any of the causes match with what you are doing.
