What is anal bleeding?
Anal bleeding, also called rectal bleeding, is described as blood that's passed from your anus. When you have bleeding from the rectum, it is presumed to be blood from your lower bowel or rectum. This variety of blood is often red-colored and could also show up as a deeper wine hue. It can appear in stool, when wiping with toilet paper, or in the toilet bowl. Rectal bleeding can happen with several GI health conditions and should be assessed by a medical professional. If you've recently experienced anal bleeding, our gastrointestinal specialists at GastroGroup & Endocenter can help. Our doctors can detect the concern and help treat it. Please get in touch with our GI office in Louisiana to request an appointment.
What are the causes of rectal bleeding?
Anal bleeding can be a side effect of many different health concerns. In the event that you’ve had anal bleeding and are uncertain of the cause, it is vital to get scheduled to meet with a gastrointestinal specialist. Some common reasons for rectal bleeding include:
An anal fissure (a small tear in the tissue that lines the anus)
Fewer bowel movements than normal
Diverticulosis (an out-pouching formed within the intestine wall)

How is rectal bleeding treated?
