hey everyone.

i'm 21, eat right for a 21 year old, and in good shape. However, i've been noticing that lately my poop has been covered in bright red blood and same when i wipe the toilet paper is all bloody.

I poop every few days, and not having any pain what so ever or when pooping neither. Is this the sign of hemroids???

All rectal bleeding should be checked out by a Doctor just to be safe. It probably is a hemorrhoid or rectal fissure But there are conditions that occur at any age that can really be serious-- it is the sign of many things --- none good!!

I have a very good friend that had problems for years then she had a colonoscopy because of blood and she had a carpet of literally hundreds of polyps lining her colon --- She had her entire colon removed at 25 yr ---that was 4 years ago.
Don't neglect rectal bleeding at any age. Colon cancer is the third cause of cancer related deaths and it's because people don't get it checked.

God Bless---Harry
