I have a bump on my anus near the anal opening, it doesn't give me much pain or anything to tell me that it's there, but when i try to use the bathroom it blows up into a little greyish ball and pretty much blocks the opening, I was wondering if this is a Hemorrhoid

doctor1 MD

It is most likely an external haemorrhoid which swells up with blood during straining for defecation. Have you had any bleeding in form of drops of blood after passing stools or stools lined with a streak of red blood? This along with pain could point towards a fissure in ano and the lump could...

my name is sirisha.., I have 5 months baby..from the last 3 months, suffering with hemorrhoids problem, I never experienced this before pregnancy. baby was born through cesarean...my doubt is whether this cesarean did affect my internal organs..please tell me the exact reason for my problem

doctor1 MD

Hi, caesarian as you said will usually not cause such problems. Haemorroids are actually cushion defects in the anal canal, which could be because of many reasons. Chronic constipation, not passing stools everyday, low fiber diet and many other reasons. They could be thrombosed piles too. I would...

I have hemorrhoids. I had rectal bleeding for a week. Improved my diet. Bleeding has completely stopped. Now I feel the urge to go but I cannot push the stool out. Is it possible this is caused by the hemorrhoids? Any suggestions other than medical intervention? I also would like to avoid a colonoscopy.

doctor1 MD

Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Constipation and hemorrhoids are interrelated. In most cases, constipation appears first and when it lasts for a long time, it may cause hemorrhoids. And so is steady lifestyle, low fiber diet, fatty foods. But the main problem is, that same causes and same...

I get hemorrhoids fairly frequently. I eat a pretty healthy diet with a good amount of fiber and just about all natural foods. However, I have noticed that the hemorrhoids tend to show up the day after I have red meat (maybe once every 7-10 days). Is there a correlation?

doctor1 MD

Hello dear

Warm welcome to Healthcaremagic.com
I have evaluated your query in details .

* There is definite concern of red meat consumption with hemorrhoids
via body`s response to hot spices via hyper congestion of the
certain mucosa .

Hope this will help you for sure .

Wishing you fine recovery...

I believe I am suffering from some XXXXXXX hemorrhoids issues, I wanted to get some advice. I am a 38 year old women. When I became pregnant with my first child, constipation and hemorrhoids were my worst pregnancy issues. I had some issues with hemorrhoids before getting pregnant-rarely- both XXXXXXX (2x) and external. XXXXXXX hemorrhoids symptoms included bright red blood in the toilet and some bright red blood on the tissue paper. I was given a digital exam by my obgyn who did not order any further testing. She is currently aware of the situation I am describing here. After giving birth to my son, my external hemorrhoids were extremely aggravated but went away with time, however, the constipation and XXXXXXX hemorrhoids have persisted. It has been roughly five months. The constipation and XXXXXXX hemorrhoids started to go away but came back when I became extremely stressed and overwhelmed. Lately I have become concerned that the hemorrhoids are a sign of a more serious problem. I am wondering how concerned I should be?

doctor1 MD

Hello and thanks for the query.
You should definitely be concerned about it as it is not going to go of it's own and you have to take some measures to cure it because if left untreated,it will keep on causing problem to you.

Hemorrhoids are relatively common during pregnancy and the postpartum...

So much that the entire toilet water was red and the toilet paper was covered in blood. I ve been diagnosed with hemroids before and jut needed to eat more fiber and all was fine, but I want to make sure tha these two things are not related because of the amount of blood there was.

I have some tailbone pain after a slight fall on Tuesday but I also have some pain in the rectum and itchiness. I had a colonoscopy last year and was told I had 2 internal hemorrhoids .I had the the symptoms of pain in the rectum and itchiness before I fell on my tailbone. I had a very small amount of blood on my bathroom tissue but only one time 3 days ago. Are these hemorrhoids acting up and what s the best way to proceed.

doctor1 MD

I have a hemorrhoid and I looked up how to treat it. The websites talked about procedures and what not, but I also found one that offered natural remedies. This website instructed me to avoid spicy foods, oily foods, junk foods and fast foods. Also, it said not to drink alcohol, tea, coffee or smoke. Now, I have two questions: Are these going to help my hemorrhoid go away? When it says to avoid smoking, is it talking about cigarettes, marijuana, or both?

doctor1 MD

There is a small amount of blood on the tissue after I wipe after a bowel movement. I also itch and sometimes am sore. I was thinking it was a hemorrhoid and have been using preparation H but it only gives temporary relief and the itch and pain comes back. I m also having irregular bowel movements. I wouldn t say that it s diarrhea but its not solid stool either. Often times after I finish with my bowel movement I still feel like I have to go and get an ache in my stomach. I m not sure if these are all related or separate.
