Hello
It could be hemorrhoids.
It could be something more serious such as a malformation of blood vessels.
Or a pocket in the rectum and these can bleed.
Rarely at such an age of yours would it be cancer.
You need a short scope from the doctor to see what this is.
You should not simply let it go on.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

It is a greater indication of severity, regardless of the cause.
This must be scoped to diagnose.

Dont mean to keep bothering you, but would there be a reaso i dont get much oain from it,
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
That is typical of every possibility I mentioned. They are not usually painful.
Lack of pain excludes more extensive inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis.
