Good Morning and Greetings from the Midwest USA
I am working in The Kingdom of Saudi arabia
Has this pink tube changed at all since you first noticed it?
Also, does it seem to be interfering with your ability to have a BM?
is it a hemoroid??
or something else
just hngs between my cheecks about the size of a everh sharp pencil lead
It could be a hemorrhoid or perhaps a piece of prolapsed rectum or colon tissue.
and it is pink and does not itch or any pian
it is just inside of my spincter
In any event I would suggest you consult with either a gastroenterologist or a cholorectal surgeon. If you can not see one of these specialists it would be OK to start with a general MD, although they would most likely have to refer you to someone else.
ok, I am outside of the US
Am I correct in thinking that it actually protrudes outside of your anal sphincter?
so what should I tell them
to help with diagnoses
King Fahad Hospital is one of the best in the area. You would get good help there. I had a friend who worked there as a surgeon for 10 years.
I can see where it starts and
Just what you have told me. The main thing will be for the doctor to examine it personally.
King Fahad in Jeddah??
I believe so.
ok, I know this place and start with a general MD
or directly go to your suggestions
Ok. Sounds like a good plan.
If you can get in to see the specialists I mentioned that will save time.

any other assistance or guides
Don't pull on it or put any creams or ointment etc on it for now since it is not bothering you.....
eat a lot of fiber, fresh veggies and drink a lot of water to avoid constipation as this probably would irritate the tube thing.
ok and tell the Doctor in Jeddah
just to examine my anus???
Tell him how long it has been present, if it has changed since you noticed it etc.
for possible hemoroid or
Yes. The best thing the doctor will need to do is examine your anus.
ok got it thanks
My pleasure. Have a good day.
