Bleeding from the bottom (rectal bleeding) - NHS
Minor rectal bleeding refers to the passage of a few drops of bright red fresh blood from the rectum, which may appear on the stool, on the toilet paper or in the toilet bowl. This brochure addresses minor rectal bleeding that occurs from time to time. Continuous passage of significantly greater amounts of blood from the rectum or stools that appear black, tarry or maroon in color can be caused by other diseases that will not be discussed here. Call your doctor immediately if these more serious conditions occur.
I know people will think thats piles but just been to see dr who says no piles present. My question, can bleeding be intermittent with anything sinister or once it starts would that be it and it would not stop until treated? The bleeding has stopped but I am having stomach cramps now which I know can be a sign of bowel cancer when also bleeding. Dr has sent me for bloods. Hello Tornado
