rectal bleeding

Hi, I'm 45 y/o. I had my papsmear and mammogram every year, and it turns out to be normal. But this morning, when I went to the bathroom for bowel movement, I noticed that the toilet tissue that i used after wiping had a bright red blood on it, that makes me worried. My question is? What do you think is the problem?

God bless you all

Re: rectal bleeding

I had the same thing, except I discovered that the bleeding was from my vagina and happened when I had bowel movements. I am still having this problem but it seems to be only when I get near my period. I have had LEEP and still have LSIL so I am under the care of a gyno oncologist. I am having some exploratory surgery to rule out a few things, but it is very likely the bleeding I am having is related to a large endocervical polyp I have. Polyps can cause this type of scenario. Make sure you know exactly where the bleeding is coming from.

Re: rectal bleeding

Not too much to worry about if it is bright red. It is probably a hemorrhoid either internal or external. They often tear open and bleed a little or even a lot at times. If the bleeding stops then no big deal but if it doesn't you will need to have it taken care of at the doctors office.
