Rectal bleeding

Bleeding from the bottom (known as rectal bleeding) is a common symptom.


The majority of conditions that cause rectal bleeding are not serious, but in some cases, it may indicate more serious pathology. It is sensible to report such symptoms to your GP, who will probably recommend a referral. After being assessed in the surgical clinic, investigations can be organised (colonoscopy or CT colon) which will usually provide the diagnosis and then treatment can be advised.
