Rectal pain/bleeding

Posted , 4 users are following.

6 weeks ago, started to feel a pressure inside my anus, not painful and was given antibiotics for suspected UTI . was told could be Prostatitus. seemed to clear after antibiotics for awhile. have a scan coming Wednesday.

but in the last 2 weeks i have got it back combined with pain and itching. just now i passed stool and when wiping i noticed a small amount of blood on the paper. not a lot at all, just about a centimeter smear of red dried blood.

i have suffered with ibs for awhile and the anxiety sometimes gets to me, just like it is now. has anyone had something like this? i never had blood before and im really starting to worry.

    sounds like hemorrhoids. I have ibs and from years of straining I developed them. I often see bright red blood, never a lot, on toilet paper. I also have the pressure and itching. I can also feel the swelling in my anus.

    I wouldn't worry. You may have a haemorrhoid which can cause itching and bleeding. Sometimes, antibiotics can irritate your stomach too. Try a stool softener. Good luck with your scan.

    Hi Redi989

    if you are worried maybe make a doctors appointment and get your self checked over but it could be hemorrhoid 's some time when you sweet it could make you itch may be use some soft toilet papper it could help .

    hi there again.

    I've now had an ultrasound on bladder kidney and prostate. all normal.

    had rectal exam. normal. found nothing.

    blood tests found nothing.

    but still having rectal pain, more like minor discomfort, especially while urinating. it is becoming annoying and worrying. anybody experienced something similar?
