In brief: Ulcerative colitis

Ulcerative colitis can be relatively easy to diagnose because it normally affects only the colon and rectum and usually causes an obvious change in daily bowel habits, such as frequent stools containing blood or mucus.
Your doctor will conduct a medical history and physical exam before doing other tests.
