Anal or rectal or colon cancer. Bleeding can come out without bowel movements, can not be accompanied by pain. Sometimes there can be interference CHAPTER (can not CHAPTER). Diverticulitis.

Bleeding in large amounts or a long duration can cause anemia. The diagnosis of rectal bleeding is through a history of illness, clinical symptoms, and physical examination.
