17, male: I think I have hemorrhoids but am unsure whether or not it is hemorrhoids or anal cancer. How can I tell the difference? I have constipation
'rrhoids vs cancer: It's very unlikely for 17yo to develop anal cancer (http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/anal-cancer/basics/definition/con-20024923). Hemorrhoids (http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/hemorrhoids/basics/definition/con-20029852) are also uncommon in 17yo. Constipation (http://goo. Gl/DgBSga) is most likely due to lack of fluids, fiber & exercise.

I'm 34 year old male, recently diagnosed with hemorrhoids. Is Anal Cancer a posibility if symptoms are persistent? No other medical issues.
Unlikely: Anal cancer is uncommon. You would be at risk if you are practicing receptive anal intercourse. Get the hemorrhoid treated as continuous bleeding may lead to iron deficiency anemia.

Dr just did a biopsy on a hemorrhoid? What does that mean? Possible cancer of my hemorrhoid or anal cancer or what? Is it curable?
Clearly you are: Really nervous about this. Take in a slow, deep breath. Don't jump to conclusions. You may cause yourself unnecessary emotional anguish as your fret about all the "what if's". I would see what the biopsy report shows. Your doctor will be able to explain it to your further. Take care.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer

I due for colonoscopy on Tuesday. Have had either bleeding hemorrhoids or (hopefully not anal cancer) a month or so. Haven't seen doctor, just his nur?
Tell your doctor of your concern prior to colonoscopy so that s/he may examine your anal canal before the procedure.
Wish you good health!
See a doctor...: For an exam. You cannot see the area to tell. Generally a hemorrhoid will be soft & raised & maybe slightly tender. Anal cancer would be more flat & firm and generally not sore. Anal cancer much more rare too. But needs an exam by a doctor to tell.
