What causes anal bleeding?
Anal bleeding can occur as a result of a number of health problems. If you’ve had anal bleeding and are not sure of the cause, it is important that you arrange to meet with a gastrointestinal provider. A number of causes of anal bleeding include:
An anal fissure (a small split in the lining of the anus)
Tarry bowel movements
Diverticulosis (a bulging sac formed on the gastrointestinal wall)

How is anal bleeding treated?
Anal bleeding is resolved in stages depending on the severity. For blood loss stemming from problems like a rectal ulcer or hemorrhoids, you could be directed to use over-the-counter creams or suppositories.

A good experience. Stacy was very helpful and pleasant when greeting me at her window. She explained how to fill out the info required. The nurse was extremely nice with her questions and taking blood pressure. Dr. McNamara was bery thorough talking about my problem and the procedure he would preform. No complaints at all about my visit other tham the length if time when the procedure would be done... 2 days before Christmas! However, part of that was my fault as I preferred to habe it done in my home town rather than Tulsa.
Dr. Patrick Volak is a great doctor. Could not find a better doctor. I appreciate his care very much.
Dr. McNamara is thumbs up. Appointment Staff needs more Knowledge and Team work.
Great staff, clean office, excellent compassion and care. Highly recommend and in fact I already have to some family. Grateful to be his patient.
