Question: Hello. During a bowel movment I passed what looks like a fleshy ball. It's smaller than a pea and has finger like projections off of it. It's happened twice now and both times I found it on the toilet paper after wiping. I also have a hemorrhoid that protrudes out during bowel movments and somtimes causes a steak of bright blood on tissue paper as well. I am a 30 year old female and I'm currently 27 weeks pregnant. I have no serious medical history.

Brief Answer:
Submit asap for histo-pathology examination to get correct diagnosis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
To recapitulate: Female/30 - 27 weeks pregnant - known hemorrhoids that protrude out during bowel movements and sometimes causes streak of bright blood on tissue paper - found fleshy ball like thing twice today during bowel movement as seen in the picture - smaller than a pea - has finger like projections - happened twice now and found them on the tissue paper on wiping ...

As per the history and the picture you have provided, this looks to be a polyp that has got detached and found on the tissue paper.
It is best to send this immediately for histo-pathology examination. Must be submitted immediately the the Doctor's or ER so that it is placed in suitable medium and processed. This will give the most correct diagnosis what it is.

I hope this answer helps you to get the most correct diagnosis.

I have diarrhea but only blood and mucus come out . It looks to be about 2 or 3 oz each time. The blood is heavy and falls to the bottom of the toilet bowl. I have severe abdominal pain and cannot hold down water or food. When I take a sip of water about 10-15 min. later the abdominal pain becomes more severe and and I pass a lot of blood. I also have chills and I m dizzy. My ex-husband cancelled my health insurance so I m no longer covered otherwise I d head straight to the E.R. I ve never had hemorrhoids but that seems to be the consensus by family and friends because of the color of the blood. What else could it be? Thank you for your time.

Hi, Iv e been having off and on bright red rectal bleeding when going to the bathroom, sometimes when I have a bowel movement , sometimes just when I have gas while urinating. This happens when stool is soft, even with no straining or constipation . At times I also have a watery, tan discharge in between bathroom visits. There is no feces smell to the discharge; it smells like raw flesh. I had internal hemorrhoid banding done a year ago, and was having some bleeding before then, but this is more profuse.

Hi, Iā€™m a 39 year old female and have been suffering from haemorrhoids for almost 2 years. Iā€™m not getting a lot of bleeding, itching or discomfort (or not as much as I used to); however, over the last 6 months, I have been getting a thick, cloudy discharge and a dose of smelly fluid throughout the day occasionally (sometimes with some blood spots). I have tried Preparation H and Anusal treatments without much luck. I also had a colonoscopy done about a six months ago ā€“ apparently my colon looks great with no polyps, no problems, except the haemorrhoids (on the outside). Because of the discharge, my doctor recommended taking this to the next level and seeing a gastroenterologist/surgeon. However, I would much rather try a less invasive option, if there is one ā€“ besides my appointment has been scheduled for DEC 2012. Over the last few weeks I started taking magnesium and selenium pills, and I noticed that the occasional bleeding from haemorrhoids is gone, plus I have a much easier time going to the washroom. However, the discharge and fluid is still there.

I havent had a BM for almost 3 weeks now.. i have an anal fissure a sentinel pile, internal hemorrhoids and i need to have a sphincterectomy done. Iv been dealing woth this off and on for years now but its just gotten unbearable within the past 3 or 4u month. The urge to go is there but the stool is so large and impacted that i just cant stand the horrible pain and uts almost to the point were the pain is so bad tht it seems like even why i try to work past it my body wont let me. Iam terrified and in an indescribable amount of pain. If i have tried so many thing you wouldnt even believe the extent tht iv gone to help it and iv seen a gastro but he didnt help me. Is there anyway to get this out without pain? Or is there a way tht my gastro may b able to get it out of me mwithout putting me through that psin?
