It is no secret that hemorrhoids can be very painful and itchy. And they can also start to bleed whenever you have a bowel movement.
If your hemorrhoids are not very large, they may clear up on their own. Even without any type of treatment, but implementing diet and simple lifestyle changes, you can really help you to heal your them.
Rectal bleeding is a term used for any blood that may pass from your anus. But, the term is often used when someone is bleeding from their colon or rectum. If you are bleeding rectally, you can have blood show up in your poop, on your toilet paper after wiping or even in the toilet bowl.
The blood can be anywhere from bright red in color, dark maroon or a dark tarry (almost black) color. Even though there are many different causes of rectal bleeding, you need to make sure that you see a doctor and have it checked thoroughly if it persists.
The color will actually let you know where the bleeding is taking place along your digestive tract. Bright red blood is from the anal canal or anus. And the darker maroon or tarry color is from further up in the colon. One thing to keep in mind is that bleeding does not always indicate that you have a hemorrhoid. Bleeding can also be a sign of a much more serious condition such as colorectal cancer or even an ulcer.
When external hemorrhoids get irritated they can begin to itch and bleed.
Sometimes the blood can even collect and pool from an external hemorrhoid and form a clot, also called a thrombus. This can cause severe pain, swelling and form a hard lump next to your anus.
If bleeding occurs during a bowel movement, it is a probable sign of hemorrhoids. If you suspect this could be the case you can see your doctor. He or she can quickly confirm hemorrhoids are bleeding or something else is.
One important thing to remember is that if you are over 40 years of age you shouldn’t just assume that your rectal bleeding is a hemorrhoid. This is because, as I stated above, rectal bleeding can occur with other conditions or diseases. You really need to be sure. If you have any bleeding in addition to definite changes in your poop, bowel habits, or if your stool has a different consistence or color you really should talk with and go see your Doctor. It is always best to make sure and rule out anything that may be more serious than a hemorrhoid.
