Unhappy Large internal hemorrhoid that bleeds

I'm 33 and have had hemorrhoids for some time now. I have had small dots of blood on the toilet paper and on one side of the stool. It's bright red, very fresh looking. However, friday, I wasn't constipated or straining and was surprised to see blood in the toilet. I got scared and went to an internal medicine/oncologist who did a flexible sigmoidoscopy. He said I had a large internal hemorrhoid that I would eventually need surgery on, he said everything else looked clean and that he didn't see any evidence of blood coming from higher up. He referred me to a gastro that I'm seeing next week for other issues.

I didn't have blood saturday-monday and today there was blood again both times I went.

I'm terrified. Can hemorrhoids cause bleeding each time and not even with a hard bowel movement. I'm beside myself with fear!!

Re: Large internal hemorrhoid that bleeds

If you have fresh blood the sigmoidoscopy would pick it up. I had the same but from small internal piles. They bleed all the time and sometimes quite a lot.
