Brief Answer:
It looks like a hemorrhoid

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

I am sorry to hear about your troubles. From your description and the attached photo, I suspect you have a hemorrhoid. I suggest you try with sitz baths, doloproct creme, over the counter pain killers and laxatives. If this does not work or if it worsens, you should see a general surgeon.

Hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.

Good morning Dr. Anders,

Thank you very much for your quick respond. Can you help me to understand what's cause to have a hemorrhoid and why? Is it anything due to my health? Do I need to see a Doctor for this or just follow your suggest for treatment. Please advise in detail what should I do next. Thank you so much for your help and have a wonderful Wednesday.

Sincerely yours,

Andy Nguyen

Brief Answer:
No need to see a doctor as of now

Detailed Answer:
Hi again XXXXXXX

The cause(s) of haemorrhoids is not fully understood. Constipation may play a role.

At the moment, it is fine to try the suggested treatment before you see a doctor:

1. Apply Doloproct-creme to the anus in a thin layer twice a day for two weeks.
2. Make a sitz bath once a day (before applying Doloproct creme).
3. Use aspirin 500mg, two pills, three times a day for a week.
4. NSAID (like Acetaminophen/Tylenol) 500mg, three times a day for a week.
5. Keep your stools soft, type 4 on the bristol stool chart. If your stools are harder, try psyllium seeds or a mild laxative, like small amounts of Movicol.

Hope this helps. Please keep me posted.
