Bleeding After Prostate Massage

Last night I gave myself a prostate massage, and notice a significant amount of blood on my sheets afterward. I went to the bathroom and had some blood coming out of my anus but it was not in my stool. It seemed to "drip out" in a way when I pushed, but not flow.
This morning during a bowel movement, I had some clear discharge (probably from the lube) and some blood that came out with it. A few hours later, I still had some light red blood on the toilet paper after wiping. I read about anal tears and learned that they are usually no big deal and usually heal themselves in a few days.
It has now been eight hours since and I have no pain associated with this nor do I have bleeding coming out of my anus other than the slight amount on the toilet paper after wiping. Since I had a significant amount of blood come out right after the massage, but now only some medium to light spotting on the toilet paper, is this a problem or should it still heal itself in a few days?

  • It should heal - probably a hemorrhoid (vein). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemorrhoid
