Our expert says:
Red blood in the stool on the paper when you wipe is usually caused by an anal tear or a pile. either internal or external. If the blood is mixed with the stool, is red or blackish, or drips into the bowl when you pass a stool, it could be more serious and be due to an ulcer bleeding, a polyp or even cancer. This always need proper examination starting with a physical examination and followed by an examination under anaesthetic if needed.
