Anal fissure?: At your age, if there's a clearly defined cause of the bleeding, no colonoscopy is needed.

Suffering from hemorrhoids. This is my second on. The first one on top of butt cheek, 2nd between butt cheek. Chronic constipation, blood in stool?
Not hemorrhoids.: It is impossible to have a hemorrhoid at the top of your butt. Hemorrhoids are abnormal blood vessels located only at the anus. It is possible that you could have hemorrhoids there, but the problem at the top of your "butt cheeks" is not a hemorrhoid. I would recommend a high-fiber diet, and to see your MD if you have not been evaluated before, since you have rectal bleeding. Hope this helps. ...Read more

May be a fissure: If this occurs with a large stool and no hemorrhoids were seen then consider a fissure (or tear of skin). These can heal rapidly so your doctor may not see it when you get checked.

Perhaps: Constipation is common post surgery, especially with the use of narcotic pain medications.

Do anal fissures require surgical removal? Had bloody stool for less than 20 times in the past 3 years. With pain sometimes. Had occasional constipation and diarrhea. No anal sex history. Thanks.
Surgery not required: Anal fissures can usually be treated conservatively. In fact, a lengthy attempt at conservative therapy is usually best in my opinion. It can take 'a while' for anal fissure to heal. If or when conservative therapy fails, then there are surgical options that are very successful. Have you been evaluated properly? How do you know you have a fissure? If not previously evaluated, please get checked. ...Read more
