[In Consideration] Is it important to inform your GI that you've noticed blood?

Many may assume that the blood they see in the toilet or on toilet paper may be from a hemorrhoid. If the amount is small (tiny specks on the toilet paper) then it may simply be from irritation but shouldn't drops of blood and/or a toilet bowl filled with blood be reported to your GI right away rather than seeing if it gets better/worse after a few days-months?
