Bleeding at the end of life can occur.  You or your carers may notice mild bleeding from fragile skin or from your gums when you eat or clean your teeth.  There may be bleeding associated with dressing changes.


Sometimes serious bleeding can occur.  The risk of this happening depends on the condition that you are dying from.  Your specialist nurse or doctor will warn you if they think bleeding is a risk for you and give you advice on what to do.
