Improving your health since 2000
Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding may occur in any part of your digestive tract. This includes your esophagus, stomach, intestines, rectum, or anus. The bleeding may or may not be seen easily. Bleeding may be sudden and last only a short time, or it may go on for a long time and occur more than once.
Your symptoms depend on where the bleeding is, what is causing it, and how much blood you lose. If you are only losing a small amount of blood, you may not have any symptoms.
