Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

It sounds like you may have some sort of virus in your body that could be calling these swollen lymph nodes.
The glands on either side of the neck, under the jaw, or behind the ears commonly swell when you have a cold or sore throat. Glands can also swell following an injury, such as a cut or bite, near the gland or when a tumor or infection occurs in the mouth, head, or neck.

Blood in the stool could come from a variety of reasons. The most, one of the most common reasons where one may see passage of blood from the rectum would be hemorrhoids or little cracks in the rectum called fissures. However, additionally blood in the stool can be seen with growths in the intestine that we call polyps. It can be seen with colon cancer, and it can be seen with inflammatory bowel disease.

Anon, you need to see a doctor to know more.
