I am 99% sure Hemorrhoid and a healing fissure... but need a second opinion

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hey people,

Years ago under a colonoscopy I was diagnosed with stage 1 internal Hem. Ive also got a history with fissures due to diet mixed with heavy lifting.

3 weeks ago I passed blood and thought nothing of it but decided to get it checked by a doc. He decided he wasnt going to check my anus out and ordered a FOB test.

I had a very bad diet with very little water day a couple of days ago and blasted bright red blood on the toilet bowl and had a significant bleed on paper.

It resolved the day after but I had been a bit on edge, so today I decided to have a look at my anus with a camera.

First thing I noticed that freaked me right out is my Anus did not look like the "healthy" ones on google images and ive never seen my own Anus before, so I freaked out and thought I had warts.

Went down the google rabbit hole, compared my images to here and google images and im 99% sure I dont have warts.. Just Hems, tags and the fissure has basically healed (I havent passed blood for 3 days)

Would like a second opinion from this forum, see if anyone !

The first photo was about 8 hours ago after going to the toilet and when I first freaked out


After that, I went and got some Proctosedyl from the chemist and applied a healthy amount

this is now, after having a shower and cleaning up around and just before second application of Procto..
