What does red blood in the stool mean?

I notice it nearly every day.

This depends on the color of the blood. If it is bright red, this could be a sign of hemorrhoids or an anal fissure or some sort of tearing within the lower intestine. If it is dark red and almost a coffess consistency, this could be a symptom of internal bleeding and possibly colon cancer.
