I had a small amount of blood on my toilet paper after a bowel movement. I am only 17 years old. What do I do?

Presumptive fissure . If this is a one time occurrence and associated with straining or a large BM, it is most likely a small fissure or tear of the anal tissue from overstretching or hemorrhoid. Use stool softeners and increase fiber foods like Fruit & Veg and it will heal. If associated with diarrhea, weight loss or fever, or recurrent problems more than a few days, make appt for evaluation.

Having . Having blood with a bowel movement can be caused by several issues, including hemorrhoids or anal fissures. Since it has been persistent, you should have these rechecked. I agree with your doctor about the discharge from your penis, but if it changes in amount, or you have pain, then you should be re-evaluated. Read more...
Hemorrhoids . Hemorrhoids can be a chronic problem. The most effective approach to hemorrhoids is to address the issues that lead to their development. Obesity, constipation, and sitting for prolonged periods (particularly on the toilet, which increases pressure on the veins around your rectum) all contribute to hemorrhoids. Heavy lifting may also play a role. As for the penile emission that accompanies your bowel movements, i agree with the doctor who evaluated you two years ago. The back portion of your prostate protrudes into your rectum, so as stool passes through your rectum it compresses your prostate and squeezes fluid into your urethra. This could be particularly noticeable in a man who's constipated and who strains to empty his bowel. I've attached a couple of links that provide more information about hemorrhoids and constipation. I hope that helps! http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/hemorrhoids/ds00096 http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/constipation/ds00063. Read more...

I had bright red blood on my toilet paper and in the toilet after a bowel movement. I have had problems with hemorrhoids. Is it hemorrhoids?

Probably. This would be the most common cause of bright red rectal bleeding in a young adult with a history of hemorrhoid problems, especially if the blood is on the TP or free in the toilet bowel and not mixed with normal appearing stool. Constipation is contributory. If it persists, you should be evaluated to be sure there is not another more serious cause. Read more...

I found blood on my toilet paper from my butthole but I didn't have a bowel movement.?

Hemmorhoids, fissure. I would think that this is most likely hemorrhoids or an anal fissure. There is bleeding, and many times there is pain and itching. If you have a lot of blood, i would say get to a hospital/er asap for possible GI bleed, but this is common with hemorrhoids especially, and so if you just have some blood, then take a stool softener and an analgesic and see your doctor if it gets worse.

Red flags. Agree with dr. W. Remember these warning signs: fever, weight loss, belly pain, diarrhea, black or dark red bm's, bleeding that goes on for a long time or returns over and over again. If you have any of these red flags, please see your doc because these are not hemorrhoid signs. Also if you are 50 years or older and haven't been screened for colon cancer, this may be a good reminder to do so! Read more...
