Fissure? Hemorrhoid? Cancer?

Hi,

For as long as I can remember, (let us say the last couple of years) I have had what I consider to be an uncomfortable experience.  Pretty much daily after a bowel movement, it hurts to wipe, bright red blood on the toilet paper and subsequent multiple trips to the bathroom to combat leakage; which is sometimes merely feces & sometimes more bright red blood streaks.  Needless to say this ends up creating a very raw uncomfortable feeling down there which seems to only exasperate the problem.  Fast forward to late afternoon after lunch has processed:  Same story, only sometimes the blood on the toilet paper is orange-ish in color.  I have been taking Magnesium Citrate (pills, 400mg) daily for about a year now.  I am wondering if this makes things worse or should be continued.  Regardless, any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.  Oh…I am a 41 year old male.

I think you should seek medical advice because any bleeding ex rectum is never normal.  Google rectal bleeding to find out more.  The Medicinenet site is particularly informative.
