Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease characterized by inflammation and ulcers in the lining of the colon and rectum. Symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea (often bloody), rectal bleeding, urgency to defecate, and weight loss. Treatment typically involves medications to reduce inflammation, manage symptoms, and induce remission, along with dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, and in severe cases, surgery to remove the affected colon.
