2. Rectal Bleeding

Rectal bleeding can be described as the presence of blood in the stools. It is a non-specific symptom that may be associated with many conditions such as hemorrhoid disease, gastroenteritis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and even colon cancer.

Bloody stools are a sign that there is a part of the lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract that is bleeding. Unlike the dark stools seen in patients with an upper GI hemorrhage, lower GI hemorrhage causes blood to be seen in the stools. The bleeding could be a sign of polyps in the intestines, Crohn’s disease, or even colon cancer. Other possible reasons include anal fissures, internal hemorrhoids, and infectious conditions of the GI tract to name a few.
