bleeding while defecating
I went last night and had a few drinks with my friends, did not eat anything out of the ordinary, a chipotle mayo dressing shrimp and white rice.  Today after going out for brunch i had to go to the toilet after an hour of eating, and while i was cleaning myself, i noticed a little bit of red on the paper, it look like blood, but i was not sure, cause it was not much, just a little bit. kept cleaning myself but nothing else came out. this ha never happened to me, and i'm pretty scared. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi,
Bleeding at the end of defecation could be due to hemorrhoids.
Anoscopy would be helpful in diagnosing hemorrhoids.

If hemorrhoids are ruled out, then a complete evaluation is needed to look for other causes such as colitis, polyps etc.
