Blood and grainy specs in stool. Any advice?

Hi. One week ago I noticed a tiny amount of blood on my stool after a hard BM. I continued to monitor my BM and they were fine, until today. Again, a hard motion resulted in red blood on the paper and stool. This has coincided with the only two hard movements in the previous week. I have also noticed tiny grainy black specs on the stool tonight. I cut my lip shaving on Tuesday and swallowed an amount of blood. I m 32. Moderate drinker, non smoker. Diet is not great, probably don t eat enough fruit or vegetables. Any advice is appreciated. I m obsessive about my health!

Welcome toHCM,
From your history it seems that you might be having internal pile.
Due to passing hard stool it get friction on the pile giving rise to passing frank blood in stool.
For passing black specs go for stool test for occult blood in stool and if it is positive then consult your doctor and take his advice.
Ok and bye.
