    How do you tell if it's blood?

    I just had some red stuff on th toilet paper but something tells me it might not've been blood. It was dried...and it was still a bright red. It's been my experience that dried blood is usually a really dark red or even a brown. When I wiped again, I was able to get more of more red residue off...but the first one contained most of it. It really had a stool-like texture, only it was red.

    Also, I eat a lot of tomatoes and constantly notice red chunks from that (and carrots can also kind of give the appearance of a red clump) in my stools.

    So as strange as this question is: What exactly does blood look like? And does this sound like something to be worried about?
