Hemorrhoid or something worse?
« on: July 08, 2014, 12:25:15 AM »
Soo..it has happened, I've got my first hemorrhoid at the age of 25 :( Or have I?
I'm not sure what it is. There's a largish balloon maybe around 1cm right by my anus and it's a bit tender seem to even go inside the anus. It feels exactly like a little balloon would feel like, it's smooth and round, no hard edges or anything.
Since I've never had this before so I don't know how they look or feel like. I'm kinda worried it might be something else, like cancer  :sick0002:
I bought some hemorrhoid cream today and have been using it, hopefully it'll start working in the next few days. Anyone with some advice?

Yep sounds like a hemorrhoid.  Just drink water, make sure you're getting fiber so you have soft movements, keep the area clean, don't sit for too long..  Don't force yourself to go number two, just let it happen.  No pushing.

Use wipes instead of toilet paper; it's easier on the skin and won't irritate.

Sit in a warm bath a couple times a day for a few days. Take care.

Lars, your sig line cracks me up.  Sometimes I think that George as a character was somehow based on me, even though I was a tween girl when Seinfeld originally aired  :laugh3:

OK, it's not causing my any pain. Just discomfort. I had a very small bowel movement earlier and there definitely was that blockage/pressure feeling.
I had a look up there and it looks kinda big and is dark blue with some white in it. Is that normal?

You had a look up there eh?  Don't hurt yourself!!

Blue is blood just as it would appear on a vain on your leg or arm.  Sounds like a normal angry hemmoroid.  As long as it's not causing you pain you should be fine to allow it to run its course naturally.  Very important though to drink lots of water, get enough fiber, don't push, and don't sit for too long!  It should go away fairly soon.  Eat some yogurt too! And keep that area clean clean clean..  And no cheap toilet paper - only soft wet wipes
