Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet).

Had a bowel movement with red blood on the tp and some on the stool. Burning, itching, and pain around rectum after. 2nd time this week. Concerned?

Rectal bleeding: At age 30 most likely hemorrhoid all irritation. Abalone cream containing 1% Hydrocortisone over the counter and used up inside the anus twice a day for 5-7 days should help with your symptoms. If it doesn't, see your physician. ...Read more

Is itching,discomfort and burning after bowel movements a sign of anal cancer? I am 18 with no history of anal cancer at family. I have tried Vermox

Is itching,discomfort and burning after bowel movements a sign of anal cancer? I am 18 with no history of anal cancer at family. I have tried Vermox

No.: Anal cancer is very rare, especially in an 18 year old, but hemmorrhoids, anal fissure (constipation?) and anal warts/HPV would all cause those symptoms. Also, anal infection with strep (if exposed to strep throat) or yeast infection (if on recent antibiotics or exposure to yeast vaginitis). Contact to chemicals or perfume in TP can cause itching. Good luck. You may need to get checked out. ...Read more

Symptoms: ovarian cysts, itching and burning sensation around my left lower abdomen, hungry more often, less bowel movements. What can this be?

Not related: Ovarian cysts can be normal by the way. Ask your doctor what they think. But hunger, and bowel changes are something to do with your bowels. You might need to see a GI specialist. Left lower quadrant pain can also be from your ovarian cyst or from your bowel. Need your doctor to help you decide how to tackle this complex of symptoms. ...Read more

I have a small pea sized bump around my anus that burns and itches after a bowel movement, i'm not sure if it's a hemrrhoid but i would like to know.

Go get checked: It sounds like a hemorrhoid, but no one can tell you what it is without taking a look at it. Don't be embarrassed, just go get checked and put your mind at ease. ...Read more

Pruritus Ani: Pruritus ani is so common today that it is known as the "space-age" disease. Occasionally, pinworms, lice, fungus, and hemorrhoids may be responsible. Rarely, food allergies, and allergies to drugs such as antibiotics may be the cause. Pruritus ani is also associated with certain systemic disorders such as jaundice, diabetes, lymphoma, and uremia. Pruritus ani is a self-perpetuating disease. ...Read more

Pain, blood & itching during bowel movement. Sumtimes itch is intense and goes away after bowel movement could this be hemorrhoids. Blood at times?

Pain, blood & itching during bowel movement. Sumtimes itch is intense and goes away after bowel movement could this be hemorrhoids. Blood at times?

Could be hemorrhoids: Pain, blood, and itching during a BM COULD be hemorrhoids (varicose veins @ anus), but could be more serious. Itching can be a sign of a pinworm infection. Other possibilities could be inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn's or ulcerative colitis; or anal/rectal cancer. It's important to have Dr. do a rectal exam; possibly have a look inside rectum with a scope and take biopsies. Good luck! ...Read more

Pruritus anus: Itching of the anal area can be due to pinworms or sensitivity to soap,toilet paper,perianal dermatitis or even overly vigorous cleansing after a BM. Try a cortisone cream applied lightly daily for a week to see if the itching clears. ...Read more
