This is Dr. David

the bleeding could be from a bad hemorrhoid bleeding

or it could be from a rectal or colon polyp or rectal or colon cancer

you need to see a doctor right away

and get a colonoscopy to look inside of you rectum and colon to see where this bleeding is coming from

there are treatments for hemorrhoid bleeding which can help it stop.

if you continue to bleed from the rectum, you will become anemic which is low in red blood cells in your blood.

you can have a cancer in your colon and rectum and still feel good.

you should go to the ER right now and get checked out

or see your primary care doctor right away.

let me know if you have questions.
