What is Rectal Bleeding?
Rectal bleeding is a symptom of a problem in the gastro intestinal tract. Bleeding may come from any area or structure in the GI tract that allows blood to leak into the GI lumen and come out through the anus.
Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding involves any bleeding in the GI tract from the mouth, oesophagus, stomach, small intestines, large intestines, to the anus.
However, any level of bleeding can lead to serious problems. Microscopic levels of bleeding can lead to anemia over time, and more massive amounts of bleeding can
leads to medical emergency.
