Aphthae Colon for Crohn Disease
I have Crohn Disease for almost three years.  Severe rectal bleeding occured last week.  After a Colonoscopic and CT Scan They found Aphthae in the transverse part of colon and the Colitis in the entire colon.  I am presently taking Entocort.  I have the following questions:

           1,  Is Aphthae a form of ulcer?
           2,  Are they normally begnin?
           3,  Could they cause severe bleeding?
           4,  Could hemorrhoid which I also have, cause severe bleeding?

Thank you.

I believe what you are referring to are forms of ulcers, similar to those of canker sores for example and from what I have read do not appear to be cancerous. Severe or deep ulcers can cause bleeding but hemorrhoids could cause bleeding from the rectum as well as anal fissures which are tears in the anus.

Best wishes. I am sure your Dr. will have more to tell you once they get the test results, that is if they took biopsies.
