thank you for the Additional information. What your doctor is describing is also called proctitis or inflammation of the lower bowel. congestion and erythematous change means that the bowel wall or the cells lining the anus and rectum are inflamed. This can happen for no reason and can cause bleeding and sometimes urgency and abnormal stool. It is not indicative of cancer and usually can be treated with suppositories or foam that contains cortisone. Congested simply means that the blood vessels are fuller than normal and erythematous means that there is a reddish color to the lining of the anus.*****Click ***** "ACCEPT" (GREEN) ***** or I do not get credit for my answer and Just Answer holds your deposit.
