Rectal bleeding, which is bleeding from the rectum or anus, is a scary but surprisingly common phenomenon. Blood from rectal bleeding ranges in color from bright red to maroon to black or tar colored. Blood can be on or in the stool; combined with mucus in the stool; or appear on your clothes and underwear, on toilet paper, or in the toilet water. Diverticulosis is the most common cause of rectal bleeding. It is the presence of tiny bulges, called diverticula , in the colon wall. Diverticula are common and typically do not cause problems, but can sometimes protrude through the walls of the bowels, leading to bleeding or infections.
