Bleeding from the anus.
Apr 5, 2001

What causes bleeding from the anus and should i worry about it?

Response from Dr. Fisher

Many things can cause rectal bleeding: hemorrhoids, fissures, polyps, condyloma (warts), tumors, cancer. So some causes are trivial, some very serious. So I don't want you to worry but to go to your doctor to be evaluated. AF

One answer for facial wasting
Fat abdomen - truncal obesity
