What is rectal bleeding?
Rectal, also called anal, bleeding refers to the occurrence of blood that comes through your rectum. When you have rectal bleeding, it is thought to be fluid that comes from your bowel or anus, even though the anus comprises the bottom portion of the colon. This blood is generally red-colored and could also be a deeper red tone. It might be found in your stool, when wiping with toilet tissue, or in the toilet bowl. If you’ve been experiencing anal bleeding, our GI providers at Gastroenterology Associates of Florida can help. Our team can diagnose the condition and work to offer a solution. Please contact our GI practice in Florida today.
What causes anal bleeding?
Anal bleeding can happen due to a variety of different concerns. If you’ve experienced rectal bleeding and are unaware of the reason, it is vital that you schedule an appointment to see a GI doctor. A number of typical causes of anal bleeding could be:
- A rectal fissure (a minor cut in the tissue lining of the anus)
- Intestinal polyps
- Tarry stools
- Diverticular disease (a bulging sac formed on the gastrointestinal tissue)
Our staff frequently sees patients who have anal bleeding in Florida. We can adequately uncover the cause of the issue. Our GI doctors understand how uncomfortable this problem can be, so we will help ensure the solution is uncovered as quickly as we can.
How is anal bleeding alleviated?
Bleeding from the rectum is commonly treated in stages depending on the situation. For blood loss stemming from conditions such as a rectal ulcer or hemorrhoids, you could be provided with drugstore ointments or rectal suppositories. In the event of more severe anal bleeding, it is likely that you could require intravenous liquids or donated blood for severe loss of blood. Regardless, it is important to schedule an appointment at Gastroenterology Associates of Florida so that you can get the right treatment to ease your problem.

This review is long overdue as Dr. Silverstein has been our family gastroenterologist for over 10 years. In my opinion, Dr. Silverstein is one of the most capable, knowledgeable, and caring physicians that I have ever known. She treats me as “a whole person” rather than just someone with a gastrointestinal disease. Before seeing Dr. Silverstein, I was overmedicated and not doing well at all. Dr. Silverstein spent considerable time with me, discussed my lifestyle and the stresses that I am under, and put me on a more holistic treatment plan that included some medication, yoga and breathing exercises, natural supplements, and regularly scheduled endoscopies and colonoscopies when necessary. She stabilized me. Today, I see Dr. Silverstein when I have flareups. She responds to my calls and messages right away and squeezes me into her extremely busy schedule when I am not feeling well. She does this with the utmost kindness and compassion and makes me feel very cared for. Dr. Silverstein also follows up to see how I am progressing, and it is not unusual to get a phone call from her after hours. Honestly, I feel very lucky to have her as my gastroenterologist. I recommend Dr. Silverstein to anyone that seeks a smart, experienced, compassionate physician and partner in their gastrointestinal healthcare.
I have been seeing Dr Steinberg for many years, always a smile, makes you feel at ease.
Dr. Simon listens to what you have to say and is very concerned about your health and is committed to finding a solution to your concerns. I highly recommend him.
Always a pleasure working with Dr. Steinberg!!
