Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is likely hemorrhoid related bleeding.

The blood stain after stool passage suggests likely internal hemorrhoid as it is painless.

May not be seen from outside.

Not concerning.

You should follow a high fiber diet and take a stool softener daily to keep your stool soft.
Metamucil and Senna tablets can be together for better action.
Sitz bath is recommended for possible hemorrhoid treatment.
Sitz bath is a bowl of warm water to sit on to relax the anal muscles and improve blood circulation in the hemorrhoids.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
