bkeeding of rectumn
Jun 6, 2004

My husband is having bleeding of the rectumn he says the blood is dark but he looks sick and in pain I can tell what can it be and should he seek help right away?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your question.

Bleeding from the rectum can be caused by a variety of things, from bad hemmorhoids to infections to cancer. Since there is such a wide range of possibilities, and most importantly, since your husband appears to be ill too (maybe more than just a hemmorhoid), I'd advise you to have him evaluated as soon a possible.
