Hi and thank you so much for this query.
Given you age, blood in stool warrants investigation. Have you been doing your screening colonoscopy? if not , please consider doing so now. Please, see your gastroenterologist
Also, a stool exam and a good rectal exam will help establish some other causes. Get consulted and let the cause be established.
Thanks and wish you well.
