OK--so basically with the tissue there's a little bit of blood on it?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes and it hurts there too. i dont know why i di it . but as i told u i started sticking toilet paperin my anus to see and it was red not all the paper but was red

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK--cancer doesn't hurt. Hemorrhoids do. This is a very small amount of bleeding and it isn't dangerous. If you use Preparation H it should resolve in a day or two.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

can u pls tell


me. if its not hemoroids. what else can it be or what i experience something else. my pelvic region hurts too

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
The only other possibility is an anal fissure--a small tear in the anus and that isn't serious either. Stop asking me to tell you if it's something serious like cancer or C diff when it's not
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

sorry. just when i seeblood i get on top of my anxiety even more crazy. ok so u saying no er

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
No ER and no danger here--try the Preparation H
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i know u dont likewhat if questions but what if its wont go away in two days. means danger or not

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Then have your doctor look at it since you might need a prescription like Anusol suppositories or Proctofoam. And for now stop sticking your finger and tissue into your rectum.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok at the end u say even if it will not heal and i need a doctor its still just either a tear or hemorroids not bleeding or cancer

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I don't know how to be more clear here--this isn't cancer and nothing really gives this combination than a little bleeding and some pain but either hemorrhoids or an anal fissure. Cancer doesn't do either of those.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

hellonwel same thing today see mred only when wipe. no blood on panties, or toilet

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
What more do you want me to tell you beyond what I've already said?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i dont know something more encouraging

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
What could be more encouraging than to tell you that it isn't serious--not cancer or C diff? I don't understand except that there are times when you refuse to be comforted
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i will be honest sometimes when people try to comfort me i think they either lie to me or think i am crazy

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Do you think I'd ever lie to you?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no but i know other people would nit because they dont love me but because they want me to stop worrying

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK but I promise you I don't do that and what I'm telling you is what I'd tell any patient of mine--this is nothing to worry about
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i believe u just i guess when i see something off i panick. alsoni am very angry about the weight loss i was 182 now i am 175 i almost two ,onth my husband was 259 now 237

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I already told you that's good--four pounds a month is a healthy rate of weight loss and you didn't put in on overnight so it won't go away overnight. If you keep doing what you're doing you'll continue to lose weight and that's a positive point. Time to close with a rating
