Blood on toilet paper, could it be nothing?

For a while, cant remember exactly when it started, (probably at least the last 7 years, Im 23) I often have blood on the toilet paper when I wipe after a bowel movement. It doesnt happen all the time but most times when it takes me a while to wipe and more so when im using harsh toilet paper. Is it possible that I just have weak tissue down there? I know its better to get it checked by a doctor but Ive had it so long and it doesnt seem to be serious and Ive also seen a urologist for scrotal pain so Ive definitely been checked out in that area (including prostate). Is it possible again that its just weak tissue that gets irritated when I have a bowel movement/wipe?

Is the blood fresh (bright red)? If so, it could be from hemorrhoids. If it is dark, best to get to the doc to get it checked out. Hope its nothing.

yeah it is fresh. Is it possible Ive had a hemorrhoid for 5+ years and not even realized it? Especially with a doctor having seen the area?
