Ulcerative Colitis is the inflammation of the inner lining of the colon and rectum. It is commonly found in individuals from the age 15 to 40. The disease can be quite disabling as this inflammation produces tiny sores called ulcers on the lining of your colon. It usually begins in the rectum and spreads upward. It can involve your entire colon. The inflammation causes your bowel to move its contents rapidly and empty frequently. As cells on the surface of the lining of your bowel die, ulcers form. The ulcers may cause bleeding and discharge of mucus and puss.
