Hi Brice. There are several possibilities but unexplained BRBPR (bright red blood per rectum) is considered an emergency. I would suggest you get evaluated right away for this. The source of the bleeding needs to be identified and stopped, first of all. Then, the underlying condition (anal fissure, hemorrhoids, polyps, proctitis, rectal ulcer, cancer, etc) can be identified and fixed.
