Seeing blood when wipe butt

A couple of months ago at college, I noticed that when I had to wipe my butt, there would be blood on the tissue. I didn't think anything of it and thought it would go away. But it hasn't. It has been like this for about 2-3 months now. The blood is not in my stool or in the water, only when I wipe. It ranges in size from about the size of a dime to about a half dollar from last night. I am really worried and on the verge of scared. Anyone have any suggestions? What should I do?

See a gastroenterologist. It's likely that it is something simple to treat, like a fissure. But you won't know for sure unless you get an exam.

I once read that some people get this if they wipe themselves very hard. I'm not saying that's your case, only giving an alert.

Also, could it be hemherroids? (spelled wrong, of course.) Or diverticulitis?

Whenever you see blood ---it is highly recommended that you see a doctor just to make sure it isn't too serious.
