Hemorrhoids, fissures, proctytitis, colitis and colon polyps and tumors, benign or malignant are some of the other possibilities. Get it thoroughly evaluated!

straining to pass stool may tear the anal ring of muscle and cause bleeding as well. definitely see your doc to be evaluated

In brief: Constipated?

What's common is common.
Thinking along these lines, we'd like to settle on a diagnosis of internal hemorrhoids. However, without the proper tools (a detailed history, a physical, a rectal scope), we could speculate diverticular disease, vascular malformations, inflammatory bowel disease, and cancer. Please get this checked if it continues to persist. And soften your stools if applicable.
