Rectal Bleeding

Rectal bleeding is often noticed through blood on toilet paper or feces with the consistency of coffee grounds. Small spots of blood on toilet paper are normally a result of small fissures that will heal on their own. If your rectal bleeding persists, or if you have blood in your feces, visit a nearby Carbon Health to check if there's an underlying issue at play.
Rectal bleeding can have several causes, but some of the most common ones include hemorrhoids, anal fissures, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, and colorectal cancer. Other factors such as constipation, straining during bowel movements, and certain medications such as blood thinners can also contribute to rectal bleeding.
