About the symptom

It describes the bleeding of gum which is the most common symptom of gum disease. It may also be caused by bleeding disorders such as hemophilia.

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • von Willebrand disease (vWD)

    vWD is a blood disorder that impairs blood clotting. In people with vWD, a protein called von Willebrand factor either does not function properly, or insuffecient. It's a genetic condition that occurs due to inheriting an abnormal gene that codes for the production of von Willebrand factor in the body.

  • Multiple myeloma (MM)

    This is a cancer of a type of white blood cell in the blood, called a plasma cell. Cancerous cells multiply and "crowd out" other healthy, normal cells. Risk factors include positive family history, older age, and male sex. Symptoms include fatigue, bone pain, weight loss, and inability to fight infections.

  • Myelofibrosis

    Myelofibrosis is a rare type of bone marrow cancer that interferes with your body's natural blood cell manufacturing. Myelofibrosis produces significant bone marrow scarring.
