Customer Question

I gave a lot of blood coming from my anus, I assume this is down to having external piles but now I’m seeing clots in the blood. Should I be concerned?
I’ve looked at symptoms with other causes and there are a some I can identify with.Recently I’ve had a numbness in my arm, it lasted a few weeks but now it’s gone.I’m not the best at getting to bed early due to working too much.I’m not stressed or depressed in anyway but I can say that my body has not been respected over the past few years.What to do?I’m booking an appointment with the docs today. They already know about the piles and the numb arm.Cheers,Warren

Welcome and thank you for your question.

Piles, as you probably already know, are caused by engorged veins.
Piles generally do not cause too much bleeding unless the the veins rupture - this will also cause clots inside the veins from leaking out.

Another cause for blood clots can be rectal polyps. These polyps can sometimes bleed heavily enough to cause formation of blood clots.

Please ask your doctor for a colonoscopy to rule out or confirm polyps.

I hope this helped.
