46 years experience Radiation Oncology
FIrst: Prevention. Appropriate targets and dose limits; 2nd: anusol-hc suppositories for tenesmus, mucoid discharge. If blood, endoscopy and coagulation of bleeding vessels. These events usually occur after radiotherapy, adn bleeding i said to peak at 3 years post xrt. In theliterature and my practice, this is not common. Bleeding about 3-5 events in 100.
