Exclamation Bloody Bowel movement help. HELP!

So i think something is wrong with me. I am an 18 year old male. I dont eat very well, but i didnt think that would effect this, but ill say it anyways.
When i go to the bathroom There is SOMETIMES blood in my poop. And when i wipe my butt there is usually tons of blood, not tons but a good amount on the toilet paper. This doenst happen every time, but it has happened more than once in the past week. So i am getting worried. I would like to stay away from the doctors/hospital at all costs. Please someone tell me whats wrong with me and what to do about it.

Re: Bloody Bowel movement help. HELP!

If your stool itself is bloody, dark(almost black in color), and of a tar-like consistancy...then you should visit your doctor ASAP.

However, if you're wiping and there is fresh red blood - this could be caused by anal fissures or hemroids. Which is just small tears in your anal/rectum region. If there is an uncomfortable amount of this fresh blood on there, you should talk to your doctor.

I suggest you change your diet for a span of 2 weeks, and see if your symptoms improve - if not, go to the doc. Better to be safe than sorry.
