I'm 16 years old and i recently found a pimple like spot in my rectum and when i go to the toilet and open my bowels, Bright blood comes out on the tissue; sometimes it's a small dot, sometimes can be a lot but not as far as a lot if that makes sense. It's been 2 or 3 weeks so far
There's a slight pain when I clean my rectum but only when i touch near the pimple (or whatever it's called)
Is this something that needs treating or does it go away by itself??
Should I see a GP?
The bleed may be due to a hemorrhoid or a bacterial infection (eg folliculitis or a boil). Hemorrhoids may differ in severity. There are hemorrhoids that may not be palpable when you strain but fresh red blood may be noted when passing stools or wiping the area after passing stools. A boil or folliculitis may present with fresh bleeding when the bump pops or gets irritated. Boils are associated with pain.
I would suggest that you have this assessed by your physician. A stool guaiac test and a complete physical examination including a digital rectal examination may be done to help assess if hemorrhoids are present.
