  • Soft bump around rectal area (Pic included)

    I have this soft bump on my rectum area that's been there for some time, but it doesn't hurt, bleed, or itch. I can't tell if it's a skin tag or an actual hemorrhoid. Should I go to my doctor or can it go away with OTC creams? I'm so lost.

  • Fissure solution

    In 2016 I was diagnosed with an anal fissure. I was 64 years old and had problems all my life with which I thought were hemmoriods. My guess is I had a fissure all along.

  • Will my colonoscopy spot an anal fissure?

    I have a colonoscopy due soon for Crohn's disease. I also have a fissure or something similar causing pain, will they see this and do anything about it? I'm wondering only because they are looking for Crohn's specifically and might ignore other issues like a fissure or hemmerhoid.
