    Yes the doctors will help but I've been experiencing very small amounts of bright red blood on my toilet paper when passing stools. There's no pain or anything I'm just worried? Anyone know what I'm going through and yes I know about going doctors just want an opinion

    Haemorrhoids, commonly known as piles. Or Chalfont St Giles to those who speak in Cockney rhyming slang can cause fresh red blood on toilet paper. So can an anal fissure, which is like an internal cut. Stools irritate the fissure when being passed and hence the blood. Try increasing the amount of fibre in your diet, eat more fruit and veg and drink plenty of water. Do all that and still see blood in a week's time then go to the GP. Believe me, they've seen it all before.

    Sally Briscoe is spot on. I had piles last year, my own fault though to be fair, not enough fibre in my diet, and sitting on a cold floor causes it as well.

    Sitting on a cold floor doesn't cause piles, it's a myth. Poor diet and constipation does, as does things that increase the pressure in the veins around the anus such as obesity, pregnancy and so on.

    I got the cold floor thing from my chemist when I went in for some cream :eek:.

    I had similar issue and went to see an urologist and he prescribed me some candles to put in there.. that wasn't a pleasant feeling but well.. But I still sometimes get a little bit of blood from down there.

    The problem might be what you eat. Is your poo hard? If yes, that's might be the cause of tiny amounts of blood, so try having a glass of apple juice a day, eat few bananas..

    I've had the same problem for probably 7 or 8 years but I feel totally fine , never bothered wth a doctor and haven't died yet so you're probably good.
