Some bright red blood in stool. Should I be worried and consult my doctor?

For about 3 days now, there has been some bright red blood in my stool which I think is from being constipated that one time because the stool was really big and just about every time I use the bathroom there is some blood. Should I be worried and consult my doctor? I looked up some information and it said that if the blood was bright red, then it s like fresh blood from the tissue at the spot the stool comes out.

Hi Jimmy
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Yes.It is probably what you are talking about , Hemorrhoids.
There are also chances that blood might be coming from internal gut areas.
Hemorrhoids can be treated by treating constipation and then depending on the stage of Hemorrhoids treatment options are available.
I advise you to visit your General Surgeon and get examined.You should do this as early as possible to rule any other dreadful causes of blood in stool.
Hope I answered your question.If you need more information feel free to mail me.
Take care
