Rectal Bleeding
Please help...everytime i go to the toilet and pass stool, i have bleeding. at times, it is quite a lot of blood which actually flows from my rectum. could this be hemorrhoids or an indication of something else. I dont really suffer from constipation and have regular bowel movement. Could the hemorrhoids be surgically removed?

Hallo Anon
Hemorroids usually give some blood on the paper when you wipe but if the blood splatters or drips into the bowl, there may be something else wrong like a bleeding polyp or a tumour. Rather let your doctor have a look.
