COLORECTAL SURGEON: Please ask your husband to visit a Proctologist/Colorectal Surgeon Doctor to be sure about his health.

Rectal bleeding: Prudent advice to see a colorectal specialist, as if hemorrhoids, it will need attention, but other problems could be the underlying cause. The sooner a diagnosis is made, the earlier stabilization can occur. Delay here could be hazardous so make appointment.
