When I was 20 I went to my doctor with small rectal bleeding, he said it was just probably internal hemroids. This has continued for the last 2 years off and on but for the last 2 weeks I have had a larger amount of blood in the stool and on the toilet paper every time I go to the bathroom. I don't feel like its hemroids because I'm not itchy or have discomfort. I have also noticed stomach cramps in the last 2 weeks. Should I get a second opinion? or be worried?

  • I hope you're doing well. I've had the same problem since April! Out of no where I have blood in the toilet water and when I wipe. I have no insurance and can't afford to go to the doctors without it. They all want hundreds of dollars down if you're not insured. I was told I need a colonoscopy but no money. I 'm hoping it's also just an internal hemorroid. No pain for months just blood and now I found a small lump just on the inside of my anal area. It stings also. Blood since April? The blood happens atleast 3 times per week. No blood mixed in the stool but on the tolet paper and all in the water. I eat healthy and exercise. I don't drink or do drugs ever. I'm so miserable of worry over this. No one cares when I tell them. I really hope you're ok. I hate how people tell me it's a hemorroid but they never know. Many forms of other rectal illnesses start off as blood.
