Dear comfort
Please see your doctor - blood in the stools can be caused by infection, internal bleeding of a blood vessel or cancer - it needs to be examined and you may need a colonoscopy ( internal examination under anaesthetic)

Hi comfort,
Absolutely book a doctor' s appointment asap, it may just be piles but could be something a lot more serious, like crohns disease or ulcerative colitis.

I would book an appointment with a GP immediately.

Blood in stools are not normal, even if you don' t have pain.
