Doctor insights on:
I have an abnormal growth anus that isn't very visible. It cam positive for hpv16 shall I show it to surgeon when I hv the appointment?
)Yes.: If you have a known lesion, it would be good to show it to the doctor. In some instances, anal hpv can cause warts and precancerous changes (dysplasia) that may not be visible to the naked eye, and you may want to have hra (high resolution anoscopy) with biopsies to define the exact nature / severity of the process. Hope that this helps. ...Read more

If cervical HPV is negative can HPV be active else where I.e the anus? Previously had abnormal smear (treated) worried it's in my anus. Thanks
Anal pap available:
Thank you Kayleigh,
This is a great question. HPV can be found to be negative but still be present in small numbers that we can not detect. The numbers rise and fall with the strength of the immune system. The immune system is affected by everything that we do i.e. Stress, diet, period, or taking medication. Be concerned but remember that the same immune system is on duty everywhere!

Sh*t + Fart = Shart: The anus is a rather remarkable muscle able to differentiate solid from liquid from gas. In fact, when healthy, one can pass gas while retaining stool. However, if you watch enough adolescent movies, you'll see scenes where someone loses control. Weight loss medication, orlistat, is well known to cause "oily spotting" & inability to control bowel movement. if this doesn't answer your Q, write back ...Read more
Anal sores: Could you be referring to fissures, fistula, abscess? Sexually transmitted disease (syphilis, gc, hiv, etc.) should be considered. Hemorrhoids & rectal prolapse can appear as an outward bulging. Anal trauma of any kind may cause mechanical injury. Skin eruptions need to be considered. Evaluation is recommended to distinguish serious versus less concerning reasons for your problem as described. ...Read more

It also possible to have pinworms that your doctor can check for. ...Read more
Lots of things!!!: Ex-husbands or ex-wives! But seriously, most anal pain is from clotted external/internal hemorroids, tear in the anal lining ("fissure"), irritation/breakdown of the skin around the anus from creams, excessive cleansing, ointments, or being too rough with toilet paper. Infections, abscesses, fistula (connection from the rectum to the skin), warts, ulcers, cancer, difficult bms. See rectal dr. ...Read more
Nerves: There are specific nerves that sense pain at the anus, and these nerves communicate pain back to the brain just as anywhere else in the body. If you are asking what could be causing pain, there are many issues, from hemorrhoids and fissures to strains to more serious issues. I would recommend a visit to your physician for a physical exam. ...Read more
GetToKnowItBetter...: Get to know your anus! That little thing can distinguish between solid, liquid and gas without you thinking about it. Pretty smart, huh? I know some people that can't.And under certain circumstances it can stretch as wide as your cervix does during childbirth. It'll let you know real quick if you need a bath or if it's unhappy for any reason. So take care of it. I assume you haven't? You have a problem?? ...Read more
BM pain with wiping:
the first reason that comes to mind is that there is a small tear, an anal fissure, causing the pain. These small tears can be common...Especially if your bowel movements are hard or difficult.
The other common problem is hemorrhoids.
I would want to know if you were bleeding and how long the pain is persisting. If you are having increasing pain you need to be seen. ...Read more
