It started when i was working out one day, my butt started to bleed, it was sore for a while, then went away for a few months.. i got really stressed today & whipped & realized there was blood on the tissue. I took a picture & i saw a yellow substance. I'm concerned & cannot think of anything else.
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.

thanks for this excellent question

Do you feel any bulging in the anus? Is it a hemorrhoid?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Bulging? Like something actually there? Or just do i feel like it is? & i don't know what it is

Thanks Shawna.

The most common cause of this would be a hemorrhoid

Do you have any other GI symptoms like pain or diarrhea?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Pain where? & i wouldn't say diarrhea, i do go regularly & at times its mushy like. If that makes sense.

Thanks Shawna.

I think this is a combination of two things

1)the bleeding is likely a fissure or hemorrhoid. These are common and it makes sense that after exercising (when you are straining) that a hemorrhoid would come out

2)irritable bowel. Mucous is common with this. That is what you saw

I would recommend that you have a colonoscopy done to make sure you don't have inflammatory bowel disease like ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease.

I suspect this is not serious though.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

What do these things looks like? I tried looking it up & it wasnt clear with me. And irritable bowl is just a bad bowl movement or what? I'm sorry.

They are like little pieces of tissue that stick out. But they retract quickly and can be internal

Irritable bowel is mucous, diarrhea, cramps. Any constellation of these

Some folks just have mucous
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

What can i do at home to fix this?

Try to stay hydrated.

Drink water, eat plenty of fiber.

That will help keep the BMs normal
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Thank you! I'll try my best. Even if this is random, like just randomly bleeds?

Yes, absolutely.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

& none of this is serious? Just minor. Correct?

I don't suspect it is Shawna

That is why I recommend you get it checked

But, no I don't suspect serious.
