Most cases of rectal bleeding are easily treatable. Others may be symptoms of a more serious disease or condition such as abscesses, fistulas, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease or colorectal cancer, among others.
Your doctor will determine the source of your bleeding through tests that may include a physical examination, blood tests, colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, and other procedures. Once a diagnosis is reached, our team will coordinate with your specialists to provide you with the best possible care.
