Bump inside anus:(

Posted , 8 users are following.

I'm a 32 year old male, no family history of colon cancer and for I'd say the last 6 months to a year I'd have a little blood on my toilet paper or about 5 months ago a bunch dripped out. Bright red. When I wipe I feel a small bump just inside the anus to the very rear. A little tender to touch but nothing super painful. Ill have a tad bit of pain when going to the bathroom but nothing that's terrible. The lump or bump is very small but just a little tender. My eating habits haven't changed. haven't lost weight, only symptoms are the bump and blood on toilet paper or streaks of red blood on the stool its self.Should I see a gastro dr? Get a cancer test? Or am I freaking out over nothing? sad Please help

    Sounds like a simple case of hemorrhoids, they can be inside too. Do see a doctor to make sure but a little Preparation H will do the trick.

    Hi Scott,

    It could be hemorrhoids but I had similar symptoms and Iv got proctitis/ ulcerative colitis. Go to your dr and ask for a colonoscopy to be sure, it's worth it. But don't worry...

    I have had bowel cancer twice....also an anal fissure and piles....my Consultant said,having been through all this,i know more about bowel cancer etc. than some junior doctors!. One of the first questions your doctor will ask you is what colour the blood is?....if it is a deep dark red colour this would indicate the blood has come from deep within the bowel and could indicate something serious. However in your case the blood is bright red which means it has probably come form just inside the anus and is probably due to piles, which can be injected or surgically treated. The presence of the small bump also indicates piles. Have you any other symptoms i.e. loss of weight, appetite or tiredness. See your family doctor ASAP but i think you`ll be ok.

    [u]Definitely[/u] get it checked, but it sounds like something harmless but irritating i had in my thirties. sorry i can't remember the name (wasn't piles) but something like a "sentinel pile". it sounds very similar.

    Hi Scott,

    What did this end up being. I have similar issue. Persistent itchy anus, and just discovered a small lump on side on anus inside. Please let me know

    Sounds like a sentinel pile which can be caused by a hair follicle growing inwards and can be very irritating. Could also be a stubborn external pile but definitely get it checked. It's easier for the doctor to look at it than you.
