Most probably it can be haemmorhoids(piles), but there are other conditions like anal fissure, colitis,diverticulitis, colonic cancer, anal fissure. The problem should be in lower intestinal tract since you have mentioned blood. Investigations can be suggested only after seeing the patient. Since your are already having it for a month better go and see a gastroentrologist for early diagnosis and treatment. Check your Hb along with other investigations. Take care.
