Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
with your bleeding that you are having you should be referred to a gastroenterologist
so what do you think?
I think that you should have an anoscopy and possibly a colonoscopy
Have you had an anoscopy?
please let me know.
No, although I did have a prostate exam about a year ago, and I had my prostate out due to cancer. They said nothing at that time
I think that you should have an anoscopy
If you have not had a colonoscopy I would like that you should have that as well
The reason why I say that is because in the vast majority of cases this is nothing serious and something like hemorrhoids or anal fissure or crack in the anus
but I would like that something potentially serious should be ruled out
OKThe bleeding is on the outside. I can tell when I wipe, there's a ring of blood dots.
Then MOST LIKELY this is not something serious at all
does it cause any pain?
Only a burning sensation when bleeding. No other pain.
Then it may mean two things:
1. anal fissure
This can be ruled out by doing anoscopy
This is what has my puzzled. My GP says there's no hemi's and no fissure either.
If he has not done an anoscopy he cannot be sure
you need to have an anoscopy or proctoscopy done to know all this.
I will be asking for an anoscopy.Do they put me out for that?
This is a routine procedure done in office
A gastroentrologist would do it routinely
Some GPs are also trained
you are most welcomer
any more questions?
No, I don't think so, thanksI'll look up thos exams so I know a little more before I go in.
