Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Treatment may not be necessary, since about 90% of cases of angiodysplasia of the colon stop bleeding on their own. Treatment options include the following:
Your doctor can often cauterize (burn tissues with thermal heat to seal bleeding blood vessels) the site of the bleeding during a colonoscopy.
The blood supply to the bleeding area can be clotted through angiography.
Hormonal therapy with estrogen can be helpful for some causes.
Surgery to remove the affected area of the colon may sometimes be necessary.
