It is imperative that you consult your doctor for an examination and possible colonoscopy. Heamorrhoids present with bright, red blood. If the blood is a tar-like substance, black and sticky, it is possible that you have a gastric ulcer. You will have to mention all your symptoms and presentation of stools to your doctor, as it is possible that he will also have to do a gastroscopy. Do not delay - consult your doctor ASAP.
