Bleeding can also be caused by diverticulosis also so it would be important to rule it out. Its more of a larger bleed though and can be really scary (I know from experience). I do believe its important to rule out diverticulosis as well. I agree with most everyone here, you want to get it checked out regardless. Even if it is hemorrhoids, they can be treated as well.
