I have been having bloody stools lately. I am concerned about this. Sometimes they are really bloody. What could this be?
Is it dangerous and do I need to go to doctor immediatly?

You should go see your doc. Blood in stool is always a warning symptom and should be looked into.

I found this - Hope it helps - Yes you should get it looked at.  It could be something dangerous or if you had a larger BM it could just be as simple as a tear.


Lower GI tract (usually maroon or bright red, bloody stools):

Hemorrhoids
Anal fissures
Diverticular bleeding
Intestinal infection (such as bacterial enterocolitis)
Vascular malformation
Inflammatory bowel disease
Tumor
Colon polyps or colon cancer
Trauma or foreign body
Bowel ischemia (a lack of proper blood flow to the intestines)

but don't forget....a cancerous tumor is the least likely reason for blood in your stool.  it's just something that needs to be investigated.  good luck and try not to worry :)

have you had any pain in your stomache that would indicate an ulcer? with ulcers you can actually feel your stomache bleeding, and that would cause the blood u see

I get blood because I have a hemarhoid.  Check with your dr. just in case but I guess I'm just used to it.  Mine actually stuck out once (sorry if tmi) but it was so annoying and gross.  It was painful and itchy but I always have irregular bm.  Sometimes it's diarrhea and sometimes I'm constipated for like a couple of days.  It sucks but if you have any of these symptoms than most likely it's a annoying and common hemmarhoid.
