I am a 19 year old male, 6 foot about 220 lbs. For the past year i have been waking up to really bad stomach pains and bright red blood in my stool every 2 weeks about. Today i had two bowel movements that were not difficult but there was definetly more than a teaspoon of blood in each movement. I dont have anal pain or anything like that, just stomach pain followed by blood in my stool.
Hi, many thanks for the query!
Bright red blood in stools in your case seems to be due to the Piles that is "internal Haemorrhoides" which is painless unlike external haemorrhoides or anal fissure which are painful conditions.

Hi, I m not regular & have noticed since abstinence of alcohol it has become worse. When I do go it can be painful & bleeds- this is not always the case but is often & that has be going on for years. I did have a pile years ago. My bottom itches a lot too & I think I have now made it sore. I m 41 do regular yoga . Am aware that not drinking enough water may cause irregularity & lack of fibre. Both grandparents on my fathers side had bowel cancer & I m starting to worry. I never go the docs & I have been ignoring this thing for years. Should I be worried?

10 days ago i noticed a slight pain in my rectum . Since i know i have hemorrhoids of 1 st degree i palpated the area and inside the rectal canal , at he 9th gynecological hour i felt a hard lump, about 0,5 cm in size that it was painless, movable and was not bleeding . i used suppositories of hyaluronic acid for 10 days and tried to see if this lump was to decrease in size. Unfortunately it did not and i told my wife to take a look at it and to take a picture. It shows no discoloration ( neither has any bluish or purple color) the skin seems healthy,and it seems that the mass is underneath the skin. I am 37 y.o male, causasian, smoker and overweight .
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

This lump can be a sentinel pile which very often associates anal fissure. However it can be also rectal polyp or even colon cancer (rather unlikely at your age). Anal fissure is some kind of wound in the rectal mucosa caused by constipations and hard stool. It...
