Is this life-threatening?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm 27 year old male. Just this morning i have a bowel movement which is hard to pass for like 1-2 min. After i somehow pass the stool my anus is hurting like it's swollen so i look at my stool. It is normal stool 2 inch size like 3 pieces of this. I kept on looking after this tiny little stool fall from my anus with RED blood on it. I almost fainted for what i saw, i kept checking on the other stool but there is no blood until i press and hold my anus which it hurts then i saw blood in my hand. Is this cancer? or is this normal?

    This will be an external pile caused by being constipated and having a hard dry bowel movement. The veins in the anus swell just the same as a varicose vein on someone's leg. Try a cream like Germaloid's which will shrink the pile, relieve the soreness and itching. You may feel a slight dragging/pain sensation for a while as it will be tender. Try this now with some cream. Use regularly and try not to get constipated as this only makes the pile bigger. Pushing hard to get the stool out caused the vein to enlarge. Don't worry. Thousands of people get piles. Not nice though.

    If you are straining too hard for a bowel movement, it can cause fissures or haemorrhoids which can produce bright red blood.  If you are constipated, try a stool softener or laxative.  Plenty of fruit is also good.  If it keeps happening after a week, see your doctor.

    It was too wide and tore the skin a little on the way out. That is NOT a big deal at all. 

    If your stool had blood IN it - it would be life threatening but the poop would be black. That's very different than poop on the outside of it.

    Give it a few days go heal. Sounds like you tore your Anus. 

    If you start to get ABDOMINAL pain then go to the ER. But. You'd have that by now  if you're already bleeding. 

    Also idk how you jumped to the conclusion of cancer but this is a fairly common issue that will heal on its own.
