In brief: Seek medical eval

Don't know if your pain is abdominal or rectal/anal.
Possible causes of blood in stool include: fissures, fistulas, hemorrhoids, cancer, ulcers, infections, inflammation, Diverticular disease & Angiodysplasia . Get evaluated if more than a one time occurrence.

In brief: Do see a doctor

Bloody stool and pain is never "normal".
. Hemorrhoids - swollen veins - or a tear - anal fissure - cause bleeding and pain. These conditions are not serious and are easily treated. However, some very serious conditions cause bloody stool and pain. These include polyps, cancers and colitis. It is essential that you see a doctor for an examination. Treatment depends on the findings. Peter wilk, md.
