Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
was this bleeding from the outside? from the skin?
it could have been a cyst or pimple which burst.
how old are you?
the skin is normal now?

I am 56 year old and I was sitting on the toilet urinating and saw blood in the toilet when i stood up a drop of blood fell to the floor, when I got some toilet paper I put it up to my scrotum and it was like a nose bleed after using a couple of wads of toilet paper it stopped, I had my wife check my scrotum and she could not see anything?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
I bet you had a hemorrhoid bleed from that area.
hemorrhoids are common to bleed after bowel movements, especially large stools which are hard can cause bleeding frequently
your anus is right behind your scrotum on the back side.
so that is more likely what was bleeding.
do you have hemorrhoids around your anus?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No hemorrhoids I wiped myself to see if there was blood in the anus area and there was none. I have house full of girls so I usually sit to urinate, and like i said i took toilet paper and held it up against my scrotum and there was an area that blood spot would get big, so i held it there like when cutting yourself shaving and after a few minutes of holding toilet paper there it stopped?

I see
well, it could have been a cyst or infected skin pore or ingrown hair follicle which temporary bleed.
and if it has healed up overnight, then you might not see or feel anything there.
I would not stress
if everything has healed up, then there is no worry.
