I have no pain during any bowel movement.
I have always had intermittent itching sensation around or in anus.
Bleeding does not seem to be getting worse....
No other illness
only medication I am on is venlafaxine for anxiety.
What do you mean when you say "At your current condition,chances of cancer are less."
also, you did not answer the question:
Do you feel that if it were colon cancer, I would have developed other or more symptoms other than intermittent bleeding by now, since I have had this for many years?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX were a polyp bleeding near the end of the rectum, wouldn't the bleeding be heavier than simply coating/streaking the stool and drops in toilet?
one last thing...in the event of colon cancer...is the blood more persistent rather than intermittent? (More like every day)
Also, in your expert opinion, by what you have read above, do you feel that there is a very low chance that i have colon cancer, and more likely it is still hemorrhoids due to the fact that i have been diagnosed with hemorrhoids during a colonoscopy 5 years ago and have had the same symptoms for so many years without any additional symptoms such as cramps, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, etc.
Thanks Doc, I will be rating you high, but just for info...where did you practice medicine and what kind of doc are you? Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
