Fiber!: Constipation may have many causes, but is most often relieved with fiber smpplementation.

Drink lots of water, exercise. Often when you treat constipation, hemorrhoid sx improve. ...Read more
Lately every time I had to go poop it hurts my butt. I don't have a hemorrhoid and I don't know what it could be?
Could be a fissure: Go see a colorectal surgeon or a general surgeon if a cr surgeon is not available to you. An anal fissure is a condition where the skin on the anal opening gets torn. Then the underlying muscle goes into spasm, causing pain. There are some non-operative therapies which may help, sometimes an operation is needed. It is very fixable. ...Read more

Got a hemorrhoid in area between my balls and anus. How can this affect anal sex for me? It always burns/hurts when I do anal even with lots of lubes!
May or May Not: The area in question is called the perineum, and a bump in this area can result from several conditions. Some are infectious, either viral or bacterial (molluscum contagiosum, condyloma or abcess) versus hemorrhoids or skin tags related to prior tears and in rare cases cancer. Any sexual activity raises risk for sexually transmitted infections, so I suggest an in-person appointment for evaluation. ...Read more
Why does my anus hurt after I run? I was told by my doctor that it's not hemorrhoids. It reallyhurts when I go to the restroom & it's only after I run
It's possible this is a fissure that we can treat most often with a simple ointment. Hemorrhoids are possible as well, but if your doctor examined the area, then maybe that's precluded.
Without an exam, it's difficult to tell you. I would recommend seeing a physician to have this evaluated further.
Common things being common, you will be fine, but should still have it checked out. ...Read more
I have daily frequent pains around between what feels like anus\rectum. Did hurt awhile having a movement but not much anymore. Hemorrhoids? Fissure?ty
You are probably right. Typically, this could be hemorrhoids. An anal fissure is certainly possible.

My youngest son is 6 months old, I had vaginal delivery and after the delivery; I've had an extra skin on my anus, sometimes it hurts but most of the time it doesn't but I've never had hemorrhoids; so I"m not sure if that is what it is.
Could be...: If you find that area to be painful there is a good chance it is a tiny hemorrhoid. Try sitz baths daily with ice/cool packs. If no better see you family doc for an exam. Enjoy your baby! ...Read more
I have a squishy lump in my anus. I took a pic of it. It doesn't hurt or anything just noticed it sticking out while showering. Is it a hemorrhoid?
(External) hemorrhoid is painful. (Didn't try to pass stool; it just hurt all of a sudden after a lot of walking). Ways to ease discomfort at home??
Considerations...: "Healing" depends on whether the original cause for hemorrhoids persists. Have you been straining at stool, have rectal dysfunction, perform an activity that increases pelvic engorgement with blood or increases pelvic pressure (heavy lifting, prolonged sitting, etc.)? Have your hemorrhoids been surgically or medically managed (& with otc or prescription drugs)? Are you sure they're hemorrhoids? ...Read more
Hemorrhoids right inside of my anus.Don't hurt but when I have a bm they protrude and make for messy cleanup. Had normal colonoscopy 1yr ago. What to do?
Hemorrhoids on all sidesof my anus. Itch/don't hurt but when I have a bm they protrude and make for messy cleanup. Normal colonoscopy 1yr ago what to do?
There are three steps to self treating hemorrhoids (blood clots in the rectal veins).
1. Soak: keep the area clean so that infection doesn't set in.
2. Soften your stool: keep from bearing down hard when having a bm so that the clot doesn't grow
3. And finally, steroids to shrink up the inflammation.
Now the steroid that you need may be prescription strength. ...Read more

How long do Hemorrhoids(Internal) take to heal? I had itching recently, and today had bits of blood on stool (already had Colonoscopy). Doesn't hurt much
Can take up to 2 wks: Most important, is prevention of these hemorrhoids. Often times it comes as a result of constipation, or not drinking enough liquids. If you're using any prescription like Proctofoam HC right now to bring relief, that will get you through this healing. However, the best advice is to do regular exercise like walking, eating a high-fiber diet, drinking enough liquids, and not holding your stool in, and pooping at least 2 to 3 times a day. This would help in your preventive efforts. ...Read more

I have these purple/blue colored soft lumps/areas around my anus. They hurt a little and show more with strain. Hemorrhoids or something else?
External hemorrhoids: It sounds very much like external hemorrhoids. External hemorrhoids have pain fibers. They do get worse with straining or if you're constipated. Things that can help include not straining when you have a bowel movement, staying very well hydrated with water, and not sitting on the toilet to read a magazine or a book or playing with your phone when you're having a bowel movement. ...Read more
