Inflammation?: This suggests inflammation of the lining of the rectum. It could be an infection, e.g. an STD if your sexual activities include anal exposure; or irritable bowel syndrome or inflammatory bowel disease, especially if you also have diarrhea, cramps, or blood with stool.

Fecal impaction: You may well have a very large ball of stool (poo) 'stuck' in your rectum that can't work it's way out. Then, loose stool can leak it's way around. A suppository may be worth trying to see if the impacted stool can come out. You may need to see a doctor for proper evaluation and treatment. The best way to avoid becoming constipated in the first place is DRINK a lot of water, eat veggies/fruit. ...Read more

I feel constipated and I have like brown discharge coming out my anus, and my stomach is always hurting?

Leakage: One possible explanation may be that of "overflow diarrhea" or the leakage of liquid stool around an impacted stool mass in the rectum. In that case, it's important to relieve the stool impaction. One way would be for your doctor to prescribe a regimen similar to that used for patients preparing for colonoscopy. ...Read more

Had bump that looked like Bowenoid papulosis, brown raised. What is difference between hpv wart and BP? Was on tip of inner butt, not near anus.

Had bump that looked like Bowenoid papulosis, brown raised. What is difference between hpv wart and BP? Was on tip of inner butt, not near anus.

Probably not HPV: If you're not a medical professional, you cannot rely on self-diagnosis of Bowenoid papulosis. Plenty of other skin lesions can be brown and raised. Genital wart also seems unlikely: a) the buttock is a possible but uncommon site; b) genital warts usually are multiple, not only a single lesion; c) new HPV infection causing GWs is uncommon over age 26. See a doctor, ideally a dermatologist. ...Read more

I notice brown thin discharge out of my anus, I also have hemorrhoids! Is it related to that??

I notice brown thin discharge out of my anus, I also have hemorrhoids! Is it related to that??

Possibly: Anal discharge can be due to blood or loss of small amts of liquefied fecal material, . If the sphincter is weak, the anal canal can allow semisolid material to pass without sensation. Rectal exam can help.
When there are internal hemmorhoids they may also be seen to bleed. Blood from internal hemmorhoids appears to be pinkish or red as it passes out. If at a higher origin then stool is black. ...Read more

Embarrassed to go to doctor but I have discharge from my anus. Almost daily, no pain. Sometimes clear sometimes brown. Never had anal sex?

Get evaluated: Although patients are often embarrased about discharges, don't be. We see these problems quite often. The colon lining cells make mucus normally. This serves as a lubricant for passage of feces. Patients with irritable bowel syndrome often produce increased mucus which can be visible on the surface of the stool or free in the toilet bowl. ...Read more
