I am not sure what your question is?
I assume you are wondering if this is from the piles?
It can be , but you should have had a colonoscopy at age 50 and 60.
If not, you have to consider that bleeding might be from diverticulosis, or a polyp.
So, you need to see your doctor in this case, and if the bleeding is a lot, go in now to the ER or urgent care.
So, let me know if you have more details or questions.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
