Q

What should I do if I have bleeding from my rectum and anus?

What can be the cause for rectal bleeding? For the past two weeks very time I have a bowel movement there is a significant amount of blood including clots. Bowel movements are not problematic, meaning no constipation.

If you are having significant bleeding, then you need an investigation. Any number of things can cause bleeding such as hemorrhoids, cancer, or inflammation.

There are several conditions that can cause the appearance of blood in the stool. Please speak with your primary care doctor about the need to be seen by a Gastroenterologist.
