Is this only after having a bowel movement?
Are your stools of normal color and consistency?
At your age it's more than likely caused by either a hemorrhoid, internal polyp or tearing of the skin around the anus from straining to have a BM. The less likely cause would be malignancy or chronic inflammation of the bowel. Either way it should be evaluated by a Gastroenterologist
Only after bowel movement yes, and the stools appears normal color and consistency.
Those are all good signs
Im a huge hypochondriac. All my friends know it and my doctor knows this as well. All I see when I read through possible causes is colon cancer.
It's more than likely one of the first problems I mentioned which are all benign non serious problems. You should still have it evaluated to be sure
Google is a hypochondriacs worst enemy!!!!!!!
Please don't google symptoms, it's going to stress you out
you need a logical opinion of a human professional
I mean, I have noticed this for quite awhile. A few months may be a very low guess. I just never really thought anything of it until I got curious.
i'm sure it's nothing serious but since I can't examine you I have to advise that you have it checked out to be sure
i will call my doctor during the week. you believe it is most likely nothing serious and something the doctor can fix so i can go about my everyday life?
Yes I do
if it all adds to this, i did have to have a colonoscopy 2 or 3 years ago due to an inflammed colon but nothing ever came from it. i just had it and all was
well to my knowledge.
That's good news. Still follow up
i definitely will. thank you very much. i feel a bit more relaxed about everything now.
Best wishes : )
