DrKnowsBest :

the best proven treatment for hemorrhoids is laser-it is least pain as well

DrKnowsBest :

as for the cut between the buttocks this is not a hemorrhoid but typically called a pilonidal cyst and needs to be treated

DrKnowsBest :

they are remnant cysts and can get infected and abscessed-needs to be removed in meantime-can see a general surgeon or can see a colorectal but may have a harder time getting in-in meantime if gets red, secretes pus, or becomes painful see your regular dr as you will need antibiotics first

also stop the medication for hemorrhoids since this can increase risk of infection

So you don't think this could be symptoms of anal cancer
Expert:  DrKnowsBest replied 6 years ago.

not likely-the bleeding could be but with known hemorrhoids less likely-if you have had an exam diagnosing hemorrhoids then very unlikely

the area between the buttocks (by tail bone) 99% time pilonidal cyst

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
no I haven't have a diagnose that I have hemorrhoids that is why I have this question if you think it could be cancer related
Expert:  DrKnowsBest replied 6 years ago.
if no one has visualized i would have an exam to confirm but with your age and description, even with family history less likely cancer than hemorrhoids

Please help me dr. I'm very worry I'm feeling a lump inside my anal canal I Ddon'tKNOWIF THERE OS ANY LUMP FEELING IN THE WOMEN ANAL CANAL
Expert:  DrKnowsBest replied 6 years ago.
a lump is more likely a hemorrhoid- they do not always change with medication if they have blood clotted in them or are large-i cannot guarantee without seeing it of course but i am saying more likely a hemorrhoid-not likely anal cancer associated with the hpv
