Response from Dr. Henry

A wide range of medical problems can cause rectal bleeding even in the general population particularly internal or external hemorrhoids. Rectal/anal bleeding can also be due to other problems including serious infection and cancer. The list of possible causes is perhaps even longer in HIV+ persons. I strongly recommend that you discuss with your HIV or primary care provider to determine the cause of your problem and what can be done about it. KH
