My GI doctor did anoscopy, said I have proctitis. But she didn't find anything except hemorrhoids in the colon when she did colonoscopy. The biopsy report said the biopsy is consistent with proctitis. I have all the signs of proctitis: mucus, blood, gas, bloating,urgencey etc.
Do I have proctitis? Can hemorrhoids cause these problems? Thank you all!

Hi you have a copy of the report? If so, can you post exactly what it says?

Proctitis is a general term for inflammation in the rectum. Did the doctor say the cause?

The fact you have bleeding with mucus, gas, bloating and urgency doesn't say it's only hemorrhoids. I would say that's a separate issue, but happening because of the inflammation in the rectum.

You have proctitis....yes....but what kind and from what? did the doctor say?
