Will rectal bleeding clear up on its own?

The outcome for rectal bleeding depends on your diagnosis and individual circumstances. If you have hemorrhoids you may have ongoing but non life-threatening bleeding. Your doctor will be able to advise you on any self-help treatments such as dietary changes to avoid constipation. Rectal bleeding generally needs medical assessment to rule out serious conditions.
