A 39-year-old member asked:

Can piles bleed after ct scan of abdomen & pelvis?

Yes but not because: The piles (hemorrhoids) can bleed anytime. The ct should not have caused it unless you had some sort of cleansing regimen that caused you to wipe the anal area frequently.

Not related.: Anal bleeding has nothing to do with having a ct scan.
