USC Surgery / Conditions / Rectal Bleeding

Rectal bleeding is most commonly noticed by patients as bright red spots of blood on toilet paper. Abnormally dark stools can also be a sign of rectal bleeding. Patients should always contact their primary care physician if they notice or suspect they are experiencing rectal bleeding as it may be a sign of colon cancer, rectal cancer, hemorrhoids, or anal fissure.
