im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Well presence of blood on the toilet paper does indicate that you could have a hemorrhoid in the region. Sometimes hemorrhoids may cause the stool to be narrow however usually narrow stools can be due to other more significant conditions. I think you meant to say you had a colonoscopy 2 years ago? regardless these narrow stools can be due to hemorrhoids but at the same time these can be due to rectal polyps, or anal polyps. These can also be the consequence of ulcers in the rectum and even anal fissures in some cases.

So while a hemorrhoid could cause this i would be more concerned about the other causes which can cause narrow stools and blood on the toilet paper. I would suggest that you get a proctoscopy done and this should be followed by a repeat colonoscopy if needed. This would be the best and safest course of action right now.
