User :   hi Hi, i was at a dinner dance on satuday 6th december, and awoke the next morning with sharp pains from my bottom. I have had problems with piles in the past, but for a long time now i have had no problems with my actual bowel movements. I would say however that i may sit on the toilet longer than necessary, and my job involves me to be either sitting for most of the time or standing most of the time if this is of any relevance. After getting out of bed i checked myself out with a mirror and discovered a rather large external hemorrhoid. This last few days i have been in absolute agony, and there is a rather embarrassing discharge which is causing me a fai amount of stress. I should also say at this stage that i am male, and am only 20 years of age. I have read on other sites/forums that my problem could be a thrombosed hemorrhoid and that they normally go away on there own, what should i do? should i see a doctor? and if not, what could i do to relieve the pain? many thanks for yor tym
