Just recently, after about a month or so of constipation and a sort of pressure feeling around my anus ring, I've checked and noticed a small lump, about as wide as my thumb - not quite sure if it's inside, outside or on the sphincter ring but, I've looked at it with a mirror, and while squatting with a mirror. I've sort of poked and squeezed at it, it's not hard, but it's round, doesn't hurt. At first I thought that maybe I had prolapsed? But it isn't a bright red coloring, I haven't ever experienced any bleeding.It's a fleshy pink - same color as my vagina/anus area. Do I need to see a doctor about this? It's not totally painful, but it's a constant dull ache, and I constantly feel 'full' like a pressure and a want to clench my ring, or even a feeling of pushing out, I really can't decide or describe it well. Last night I was having trouble sleeping. It isn't going away. Another concern of mine, could this in anyway be a cancerous tumor? My grandfather died of anal cancer, my Mother has gone through dozens of colon'oscopy's for years and they have never found anything in her.I am nineteen. Never had sex before. I currently don't have any insurance, so I'm not really sure what to do.
Hemerroid? Cancer? Prolaspe? Something else?
I have looked again, and around my anus there is blue/darkish blackish coloring. I am getting very concerned. I have been constipated really bad this week. I have taken two laxatives this week and have pooped at the most three times this week. I have been drinking more water and have started to eat whole grains/vegetables. I have also been drinking a lot of cranberry juice for a UTI. And I also have a yeast infection that I am trying to get rid of. One of the laxitives I have taken yesterday, I still have not gone to the bathroom. I have been eating regularly. I have been getting a lot of other symptoms, most noticeably this past month. And this is all beginning to worry me. I've talked with my Mother about it (my other symptoms, - will talk to her about this in the morning) but she says I have nothing to worry about.These symptoms, especially blue/blackish tint's worry me. They almost look like bruising or even bleeding? Could I be bleeding internally? I haven't had any outword signs of blood. No blood in stool/toliet paper, not in urine, no vomiting blood.I have been having abdominal bloating and back/side and pelvic pain for about a month. But I am also very inactive and am sitting/laying down a lot of the time. Please help. Again, I am very concerned.
Try getting some Preparation H over the counter at your pharmacy. If it is a hemmorrhoid, which given the constipation it very well could be, that should take care of it.
Sorry i only just saw this post. I think from how you've described this, it sounds like a Hemorrhoid. Like the user above me said you should be able to grab something in the pharmacy for it. If you continue to worry and feel as though its not improving i would definitely consider getting it checked at the doctors.
With most things the doctor can put your mind to rest and give you valuable advice on how to handle it.
Hope this has helped ease your worries.
