Bleeding while deficating

Latley I have been bleeding while deficating. At first there wasn't a lot but recently there has been an unusual amount and I am concerned. I have also been getting skinnyer and I am not sure if the two are related.

Hi,
Blood in stools could indicate hemorrhoids, fissure, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, angiodysplasia, malignancy.
A full length colonoscopy may be done to find the source of bleeding.

Have you seen a doctor???  You must see a doctor.  Blood in the stool could be cancer, colitis, or, just hemorroids (hemorrhoids).  I'd find out if I were you.  Good luck!
