Help. Blood in Stool and scared.

I'm a 19 year old male student at a university. I went to the cafeteria to eat dinner at about 6 or 7 PM. As I got up to put away my tray, I noticed that I was feeling bloated. I got back to my dorm and immediately went into the bathroom stall.

While I wiped, I noticed that the area felt a bit warmer than usual. I checked the toilet paper and I noticed bright red blood. I saw that there was what appeared to be a decent amount of bright red blood in the stool as well.

After I finished wiping, I went back to hang out with my friends. Now, however, I have been feeling rumbling in my stomach. I almost feel like I need to use the bathroom again, but I am afraid to.

I've been really worried about it since and I am unsure as to whether this is serious or not. Any quick insight would be extremely appreciated.

Re: Help. Blood in Stool and scared.

Blood in the stool can be caused by many things...what you ate the day before etc..
If it is only a one time thing or every once in awhile dont worry about could be hemmoroids or your rectum is just irritated. If it persists for longer than a week go to the doctor and he will help you. Rectal bleeding can happen occasionally but if it is an on going problem than its a problem. Sometimes rectal bleeding can be a sign of an infection but its not life threatening.. Try not to worry I am sure its nothing..
