Rectal bleeding refers to blood that passes through your anus.  If you have noticed blood in your stool, on used toilet paper, or in your toilet bowl, then you may be suffering from rectal bleeding.

Most of the time, the cause of the bleeding is benign, however, in some cases, rectal bleeding can be the first sign of a greater problem like colorectal cancer.

It is important to seek consultation with an experienced doctor, like Dr Papageorgiou.

If necessary, he will perform a colonoscopy to determine the cause of the bleeding and the best course of treatment.
