    Blood in stools

    I'm a sixteen year old person. I've found blood stains on the toilet paper a couple of times... I don't know why it's happening and I'm scared. I don't want my mother to know yet as she'll be worried sick. There is a colon cancer history in my mother's side and that's worrying me...

    I'm sorry that you are experiencing this. That can be a very scary experience especially at your young age. Odds are it is a tear in the anus or a hemorrhoid causing the blood on the toilet paper. Do you notice any blood in your stool in the toilet? I definitely think since there is a familial history, you should discuss this with your mother and run it by your doctor just as a precaution. Odds are, It's nothing but you should hear that from a healthcare professional

    If blood is bright red it's hemorrhoids like sgtgrl mentioned.

    Best of luck to you.
