red blood in stool/worried

I am a 56 year old woman in good health. In the past have had ibs and occasional red blood bleeding in stool from hemmorroids. Recently I have had some red blook on the stool and on toilet paper. The stool is firm on not dark. I plan to go to a doctor, but am worried.

Your experience?
