Dr diagnosed external hems 4 weeks ago.  Had rectal bleeding 3 times last week.  Rectal exam showed none today.  Was blood caused by rhoids or cancer ?

Probably: If the blood was bright red and not mixed with stool, it is quite likely that you bled from the hemorrhoids. However to be sure, I recommend that a proctologist or colorectal surgeon start with a simple flexible sigmoidoscopy which visualizes the descending colon and would be good evidence in ruling out internal hemorrhoids, benign polyps, ulcerative colitis,or malignant growths. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. I am sorry to hear about your dad. It is clear that you are really worried about him. If he is a chronic, heavy drinker that can be a risk factor for gastrointestinal bleeding. There are many areas that a person can bleed from: esophagus (rupture or erosions), stomach (ulcers or gastritis), as well as the small intestine, large intestine, rectum and anus (like hemmhroids). He could even have problems with his bleeding times from alcohol. Normally, the doctors will need to do studies to determine the cause of the bleeding.
