What is rectal bleeding?
Anal, or rectal, bleeding describes the passage of blood that is passed through your rectum. In the event of bleeding from the anus, it is thought to be fluid that is present in your bowel or rectum, despite the fact that the rectum makes up the lower portion of the large intestine. This type of bleeding is usually red-colored and could often show up as a dark wine tone. It can appear in the bowel movement, after you wipe with toilet paper, or in the toilet bowl. If you’ve had bleeding from your rectum, our GI physicians at Arizona Digestive Health can help. Our physicians can detect the concern and work to resolve it. Please get in touch with our GI facility in Arizona today.
What are the causes of anal bleeding?
Rectal bleeding may occur as a result of a number of health issues. If you’ve experienced rectal bleeding and are unaware of the reason, it is important that you arrange to see a gastrointestinal specialist. A few common causes of anal bleeding could be:
Diverticular disease (a bulging pouch occurring on the intestine wall)
An anal fissure (a little tear in the tissue lining of the rectum)
Trouble having a bowel movement
Our staff frequently helps patients who have rectal bleeding in Arizona, and will work to appropriately uncover what is causing the condition. We recognize how unpleasant this condition can make you feel, so we will do all we can to make sure we figure out the issue as promptly as possible.
How is rectal bleeding alleviated?
Bleeding from the rectum is approached in stages according to the situation. If you have blood loss due to problems such as an anal fissure or hemorrhoids, you could be provided with drugstore ointments or suppositories. In the event of more heavy rectal bleeding, it is possible that you might need intravenous liquids or donated blood for excessive loss of blood. Regardless, it is vital to book an appointment at Arizona Digestive Health so that you can receive the best answer to ease your problem.

EAST VALLEY GASTRO- Dr Panossian: The most caring physician I have seen in years. Not that the others have been bad, he is just several notches above. He is very upbeat, great bedside manner with exceptional communication. Took his time and seemed to really care to find the cause of my belly pain- even suggesting possibilities outside of his scope of practice. He's definitely one of the good ones. I'd recommend him to anyone!
