You should probably go to a GP to be on the safe side.

If it’s concerning you at the moment - You can call 111 to get non urgent but instant medical advice. They can help you decide what needs to be done.

So, probably not cancer because you're 13, but definitely worth seeing a doctor about. My (uneducated) guess is that there's some internal bleeding going on. Did you get beaten up or something?

This is rather strange advice. It’s either an emergency or it’s not. A&E isn’t an alternative to your GP.

You probably ate something that's cut you on the way out, the stomach rumbling will be unrelated.

Hope you're getting it sorted anyway.

Go to your GP. It's probably nothing, but it's better to have it checked.

No it isn't; the same thing happened to me; this is what I did ten years ago and I was diagnosed with a chronic disease. I was repeatedly told by the doctors that it was good that I came to the emergency department. It's recommended on the NHS website to go to A&E if there is a lot of blood.

My point is if you can defer going to accident and emergency overnight, then it's clearly not an emergency. What you are suggesting is to use A&E as a convenient drop-in resource rather than more appropriately booking a GP appointment.

The vast majority of bleeding like this does not need to be seen in A&E. The exceptions being if its profuse and not stopping and/or associated with being generally unwell. This is reflected in NHS advice online.

remember that A&E will be very busy with drunk people etc over Christmas so if you are thinking of going it would be better in the next day or so.
