colon bleeding

Hi, I have been battling spontaneous rectum bleeding for about 20 years and do not know what it is from... I am worried because I drink alot and have recently battled breast cancer.. I have had a colonoscopy and it came out negative...

What can be causing this and what should I be concerned about?  Please help, because I have been through so much already.

Thanks!

Hi,
Bleeding through rectum could be due to various causes like diverticulosis, angiodysplasia, hemorrhoids, fissures, cancers, IBD, ulcers,  meckel's diverticulum etc.
Sometimes even the upper gastrointestinal bleeding may manifest as bleeding through rectum.
The tests that are useful to find the cause include upper GI endoscopy, colonoscopy, scintigraphy, angiography, enteroscopy and barium studies.
