Are Internal Hemorrhoids Always Diagnosed With An Anascope Exam Or Can They Be Missed
Hemorrhoids: Depending on the severity of the hemorrhoids, there is always the chance that they can be missed. Usually though, they will be found if they are there. Internal hemorrhoids are painless, so therefore less noticeable to the patient. A good way to prevent them is to have a diet with adequate fiber and fluids to prevent straining when going to the bathroom. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Would a colonrectal surgeon be able to tell if my prostate was enlarged when she completed a digital rectal exam and/or andoscopy while searching for internal hemorrhoids?
Yes.: While they may not routinely focus on the prostate portion of the exam, it would be something they could feel with the digital exam. Prostate size is not sufficiently visualized with anoscopy. There are folds of colon tissue that move out of the way with the finger test but sometimes obscure the anoscopy visualization. Since they don't focus on the prostate, though, they may not wish to comment ...Read more
Is it normal to have major bloating a day after a rectal exam w/ lower back pain? Impacted w/ blood in stool, external/internal hemorrhoids, loose stool
Depends: I would need to know more about your hx, and what exactly was done during the rectal exam. If you had invasive type of procedure--lower GI series where a barium enema is introduced into anus--or a flexible sigmoidoscopy/colonoscopy--then cramping or bloating are to be expected for 4-24 hrs. If you are having further difficulties, consult with dr who ordered, or performed tests. Good luck. ...Read more
I was recently diagnosed with internal hemorrhoids. What can I do when I have bleeding. Can I do something to prevent bleeding?
Use stool softener.: Both as treatment and prevention.Eat more fiber, drink more water and exercise more.Hemorrhoids are basically veins that have been injured by our bad habits.Don't let your stools become very hard, the job of the colon is to recover the fluid in the stool;if we do not drink enough water, or eat only highly processed food (no fiber) and don't exercise(the helper to bowel transit) we can expect problems. ...Read more

This past summer if I miss a meal I get painful intestinal spasms the next day sometimes. Could it be from anal fissure? Hemorrhoids? Rectal STD?
Unlikely: You may have a acid or digestive problem. Consider reflux, gluten allergy or dairy intolerance. If your weight is normal this is not likely serious. It is it likely due to anything I your rectum. If you are having anal sex you need to be checked for std. Especially if this is unprotected sex. ...Read more
Likelyhood anal cancer would be missed in 34yr male after normal colonoscopy 1yr ago? (not even hemorrhoids seen at time of test) have them now tho.
Not big problem.: Although hemorrhoids are an issue that can lead to anal cancer, they need to be very severe and longstanding and associated with a mass. Someone your age with a clear colonoscopy is still likely in the very low risk category for this cancer unless there is family history. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Office treatment: If your internal hemorrhoids prolapse out through your anus to the point that you notice it, that is not likely to go away on its own (the horse is out of the barn), and it may eventually get to the point that you have to manually push them back in. Most grade 2 internal hemorrhoid prolapse is easily treated with safe and often painless office procedures like rubber band ligation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have had several internal hemorrhoids removed and now I have to wipe excessively to get clean. Sometimes an hour or two later, i wipe
again but very little. No blood, no pain no urge to go.
Pasty gooey: Hard to clean stool is usually due to a lack of fluids usually about 40 ounces short for the day. Stay away from caffeine and alcohol and increase your fluids. This should help in 3-4 days. You may also have had damage to your sphincter muscles from the surgery. This too needs to be evaluated. ...Read more
