Top 10 Unexplained / Excessive Bleeding From Cuts or Wounds Causes

  1. 1.Hemophilia a

    Hemophilia A is an inherited (genetic) disorder which causes the blood to have a deficiency or absence of coagulation factor VIII, which is a protein that is needed to create blood clots. This can result in bleeding that starts on its own, or uncontrollable bleeding after trauma or surgery.

    You should visit your primary care physician who will refer you to a hemophilia treatment center. Treatment is with medication and avoidance of trauma that can cause uncontrollable bleeding.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    spontaneous shoulder pain, difficulty moving the shoulder, unexplained/excessive bleeding from cuts or wounds, pink/blood-tinged urine, rectal bleeding
    Symptoms that always occur with hemophilia a:
    unexplained/excessive bleeding from cuts or wounds
    Urgency:
    Primary care doctor
  2. 2.Immune Thrombocytopenia

    Platelets are tiny cells in the blood that help form blood clots and seal minor cuts and wounds. Immune thrombocytopenia, also known as immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), is a condition where there are not enough platelets in the blood, causing easy bruising and tiny reddish purple dots on the skin from bleeding under the surface.

    You should visit your primary care physician to determine the severity of your ITP, and plan a course of treatment if needed. Treatment is focused on raising the platelet count to prevent excessive bleeding.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
