I Can Feel A Mass In My Rectum
There is a painful mass in my rectum that I can feel when I have a bowel movement. Is it more likely to be cancer or a hemorrhoid?
I think my hemorrhoid was misdiagnosed, i can't poop and when i feel in my rectum i feel a hard mass that is almost blocking my rectum. No pain.
see your doctor: At 24 years of age, this is likely stool impaction rather than a cancer, but if you are unable to defecate and indeed you cannot pass whatever is in your rectum, you need to see a physician. If it is impaction, manual disimpaction with or without enemas may help. If this is from a mass, then this need urgent evaluation. This is not a hemorrhoid, they are not hard unless the are thrombosed. ...Read more

Rectum not normal?: Hi i may need you to rephrase your question. But, the assumption i make is that your stool is frequent and/ or soft in the morning. It is very common to have a bowel movement at the same time every day. And, to have this happen when one first awakes is also very common. But, if your stool is not formed you may have a parasite infection or a food allergy and this needs to be evaluated. ...Read more
