Anal, or rectal, bleeding is any bleeding that is discharged from your anus. In the event of rectal bleeding, it is thought to be blood that is present in your sigmoid colon or anus, despite the fact that the anus comprises the lower part of the colon. This sort of bleeding is often bright red but can often show up as a deeper wine color. It might be found in the bowel movement, after you wipe with toilet tissue, or in the toilet. In the event that you’ve had bleeding from your anus, our gastrointestinal physicians at Colorado Gastroenterology can help. Our physicians can diagnose the condition and help relieve it. Please reach out to our GI facility in Denver, CO today.

Bleeding from the rectum can occur as a result of a number of health problems. If you’ve had rectal bleeding and do not know the cause, it is vital that you schedule an appointment to see a GI doctor. Several prevalent causes of anal bleeding could be:

  • Dry bowel movements

  • Diverticular disease (a bulging sac formed in the gastrointestinal wall)

  • Fewer bowel movements than normal

  • An anal ulcer (a small split in the tissue that lines the tube at the end of the rectum)

  • Intestinal growths

  • Hemorrhoids

However, it is vital to set up an appointment at Colorado Gastroenterology so that you can find your ideal treatment.
