Seeing blood after a bowel movement is usually a sign of hemorrhoids. Especially if the blood is bright red. Hemorrhoids can be internal and can neither be seen or felt outside the rectum. There's also something called a fissure. That is a cut or lesion inside the rectum that often bleeds when stool passes over it during a bowel movement. The bleeding isn't likely cancer. Rectal cancer is often marked by painless rectal bleeding, but it doesn't only happen after a bowel movement. You can try taking a stool softener (not a laxative) for a few days to give it time to heal. Yes, even if you're not constipated. If you don't get any relief, I suggest you make an appointment with your doctor.

just constipation. there is mucous in the GI tract to help things along, and thats all it was
colon cleanses are dangerous (wipes out the good bacteria too) and unnecessary. just eat right, get enough fiber and drink enough water.
Colonoscopy and colon cleansing are completely different things, educate yourself.
I had a recent bout with anemia a couple of weeks ago.. with similar symptoms, consult a doctor anyway, but if you find yourself out of breath just taking a few steps or a small flight of stairs.. you may be getting Anemic..
Most people have an iron raio of a level '35' or so... when I walked into the hospital mine was at '4'... nurses say they hardly see that walk in off the streets...
At the bare minimum see one of those Express-Clinics now being offered and placed at major SuperMarkets around the country.. possibly near the pharmacy of your 'store of choice'...
Whatever you decide... I wished I had went in sooner.. and hope you could decide likewise...
Best of luck, and good Health!!

If its fresh blood (bright red) its most likely haemorrhoids.
If its old blood (dark)
a) you prob wouldn't be able to see it well
b) thats usually when you would see a dr.
If you're worried go to the doc.

i had the same exact problem a month ago. i never went to the doctor but it eventually cleared up on its own. could be a ruptured hemroid or other intestine problems. odds are its just stress or poor eatting habbits. just to be safe, go see your doctor. dont be like me.

Could be hemorrhoids. Do you have little pouches sticking out the anus? Even if you don't, you could still have them up inside. OR, like you suggested, you could have polyps. Blood with bowel movements should always be checked out by a doctor. If you do not have insurance, find a University Hospital with a clinic (usually free or very low cost) and get an exam. You could have something more serious, like colon cancer. Not wanting to scare you.....but facts are facts.
However, if this is a chronic problem, and you have not experienced unexplained weight loss, it probably is not cancer. Especially since you are still alive.
Please find a way to see a doctor.
