Patient : For quite some time now I've had trouble passing stools, slight pains and small amounts of blood present on toilet paper when wiping. I grew concerned and contacted my GP, who told me (without a physical consultation) that it was likely due to a tear, and a more healthy fibre-filled diet and more water would aid the situation. The problem has persisted and I'd like to know if I should go and get it checked out properly. Please see the following photos for a closer look at the problem.
