Bright red blood in hard stool? Please help!!!!?

Postby aeneas87 » Mon Jul 29, 2013 5:40 am

I had a bowel movement in the morning today and it was little pellets and a small stool that was hard to pass with no blood. I recently took some fiber and used the restroom like 8 hours later again. This time the stool was hard again and there was so much bright red blood on the stool. I wiped and there was no blood in the toilet paper, which got me worried because I'm sure I'm suppose to have some if it's a hemorrhoid.

I'm a 16 year old guy and I'm just terrified to get diagnosed with Colon Cancer or even an IBD......
What might this sound like?

Sounds like an anal fissure caused by the hard stool.

Bright red blood is rarely a major problem.

Not to worry. This is normal. When you pass a hard bowel movement, you can potentially cut the inside of your intesrinal tract. The cuts are very small, but full of blood. This will pass in at most 2-3 days.
