Thanks for the information
If you have this problem for the last two days and there is no pain on passing stools,no constipation and no pain abdomen there could be few possibilities.
It can be related to hemmorhoids,first episode of inflammatory bowel disease or intestinal polyp etc.Usually in case of constipation the stool is not mixed with blood and there is just a dark red or maroon color blood on toilet paper and sometime over the surface of stools but as i said not mixed with it.With your age it could be a first episode of inflammatory bowel disease as well.Intestinal polyps can also give rise to such symptoms.There are still other causes of bleeding like diverticular disease,atriovenous malformation and malignant neoplasm of the intestine(usually advanced age with long standing history and associated weight loss and anorexia).In my view if the bleeding is quite severe then you should have an urgent evaluation including a digital rectal examination and further investigations based on the initial evaluation.
