hemmorhoids blood when wiping

For the past few months there has been just a tiny bit of red blood on the toilet paper everytime I wipe. I feel absolutely fine, I don't get any kind of pain or cramps in any relevant areas. Is this a problem? What could it be? I'm only 20, doesn't that put me in an extremely low risk category for things like colon cancer? Like I say it's been for a good few months now and it doesn't seem to be getting worse.

I thought it could be piles (hemmaroids (sp?)). But what is that exactly? I have heard things such as it is like a bunch of grapes hanging from down there. I certainly don't have anything like that. It feels normal, i think...

sounds like hemmorhoids, just not a very severe case. see, they're not always visible, they can be internal too. if you look it up on wikipedia there should be some images so you get an idea what they look like and if you have them. eating a good diet with plenty of fibre and water should help.
