In brief: Hemorrhoids Likely

Blood which looks like bight red blood is usually bleeding from hemorrhoids (dilated veins connecting colon veins to skin veins), either internal or external to anal sphincter. Sometimes GI examiners, in a rush to look for issues higher up, miss some of these.
Additionally, a colonoscope is not necessarily the best way to examine. Both study & learn anatomy & look for physician worthy your trust.
