In brief: Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids is till the most likely diagnosis, but the amount of bleeding can be worrisome.
Best to return to your doctor, or consider seeing a gastroenterologist.

Needs follow up; wouldn't want to miss other problems, such as infection, or ulcerative colitis; cancer would be VERY unlikely

In brief: Even so...
Even if this is "just hemorrhoids" you should not just live with it.
If stool softeners, water, fiber, etc are not working, see a colorectal surgeon - they can get to the bottom of this quickly (i know, bad pun...).

In brief: Don't worry
Get educated, informed and checked.
An anoscopy can show bleeding coming from the hemorrhoids and a sigmoid or colonoscopy can look into the intestines to make sure nothing more serious is coming from higher up.
