I'm a 21 year old active & healthy male. However, for over a 1 year & a 1/2 I've been seeing bright red blood in my stool. What could it be?

In brief: Blood in stool

Minimal bright red blood per rectum (i.
e. small amt on toilet paper after wiping) could be caused by hemorrhoids, anal fissures, polyps, proctitis, rectal ulcers or colorectal cancer. Family history of cancer and risk for serious pathology should be reviewed and discussed with physician.
