This could be caused by hemmorhoids. However, you need to see a physician, because it could be a serious gastrointestinal disorder, including cancer or a type of inflammatory bowel disease. You may also be suffering from a bout of gastroenteritis, when certain types of bacteria cause digestive issues. E. coli is often associated with gastroenteritis.
