You : You may be dealing with an internal hemorrhoid. These are usually painless and can cause quite a lot of bleeding. On the other hand rectal polyps, tumors, and like you stated fissures can be the cause amongst other things. You really need to see a doctor for this problem. You will need a rectal exam, stool testing for blood, and a test to make sure you are not anemic due to all the bleeding. Your doctor may also want additional tests based on your history and exam. I know you probably don't want to see a doctor for a rectal exam, however it is in your best interest to get a diagnosis and prompt treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm having bloody stools, diarrhea, bright red blood from anus in underwear, and sometimes cramps ?

Best to get checked: I would suggest making an appt with your doctor soon. This could be symptoms of an infection from something you ate or drank (like salmonella for example). It could be a condition called inflammatory bowel disease (like Crohn's). If you develop fever or outright abdominal pain, go to urgent care or the ER. If not, see your doctor soon. ...Read more

I occassionally get tiny bright red blood spots on tissue from anus. Causes?  Should I be worried?

Likely benign: Given your age and the minimal amount of blood this is most likely related to hemorrhoids/ perianal skin fragility. If you have a significant family history of colon cancer/ inflammatory bowel disease make sure you mention it to your PCP at the next well visit. An exam of the perianal area/rectal during the same visit will probably answer your question. ...Read more
