Conditions with symptom: 'lumps on rectum'
a couple of weeks ago, i had a sharp pain whenever i went to the toilet, like half my rectum was missing. i felt a hard lump inside my rectum, which i though was the cause. The lump has now gone, but i haven't been to the toilet for about 5 days, and whenever i pass wind, i bleed from my rectum....... Any ideas?
This sounds like piles caused through straining. I'd buy some haemorrhoid cream, drink more water and eat more fibre.
I have multiple bowel movements throughout the day. The stools are thin, sometimes they have one side which is angular rather than round. I never feel that my rectum is completely empty and my vagina hurts after I have defecated, as though it were somehow attached to the rectum. I am kept awake at night by the pain from both vagina and rectum. Alternatively, if I have diarrhoea instead, my vagina then feels as though it is being stung by stinging nettles and I am unable to walk for the rest of the day.
Hey. I'm 23 with no kids or anything and I have exactly the same symptoms as you and I have been through all the tests (colonoscopy, defecating proctogram, anal manometry etc.) They concluded that I have rectal prolapse and rectocele, which basically means the rectum is prolapsing into the vagina. It can be fixed. In my case it looks like I'm having ventral rectopexy. Don't panic and look online forever until it gets worse, which is exactly what I did. Just go to the doctor go through the motions and they'll sort it out. Definitely too uncomfortable to carry on living with my love!
I have a small patch of what looks like white hard lumps in between my rectum and my vagina. It is not painful and is not causing problems. It just feels funny and has only become noticeable the past few weeks.
Im having tests for a prolapsed rectum, I cant pass stool whether its hard or soft without straining, then it feels like I havnt finished, I had a Laparascopic ventral mesh rectopexy 6 months ago, but things havnt improved. It gets so uncomfortable in the rectum, what can I do.
I'm 23 years of age and I think I suffer with piles I haven't been able to go to the toilet for four days now and when I do try and go to toilet two big lumps come out of my rectum and stop me from going I find it very hard to sit in a certain stop for to long iv tried prune juice and dulcomen tables and senakot tablets is there anything else I can try as I'm in real agony and just this to be over as I'm not sleeping. Please please help me.
I went to the docs yesterday.. similar age to you and I to have a lump which is protruding out of my anus - the size of a walnut. I was prescribed some ointment and also advised to use ice wrapped in a glove as a cold compress as much as I could tolerate and to push it back in if possible. I was also told to have a bath with warm water 3-4 times a day ... only has to be a few inches of water. I have to say that although initially the ice stings it did provide me with some relief as it numbed the area. It has gone down in size a little bit... only the first day ive used the ointment but it is easing the throbbing and itching. Do go to the docs though as from reading around it may be thrombosed, be a rectal prolapse or something else which may require different treatment.
You poor Kid. I am a mom of a 25 yr old daughter. Have you tried Milk of Magnesia? Read the bottle it should work overnight. Have you tried the suppositories? There are two kinds, glycerin, and the other suppositories say on the box that you will go to the bathroom in 30-60min. They are about 8.00 for 5 suppositories, you might be impacted. Drink a bottle of water if you can and lie down. And try not to go to the bathroom until the last possible minute. They really work but the longer you wait the better the results. Don't wait over the hour.remember buy the suppositories that say for fast relief. Not glycerin. If you have not gone pls get back on here with your progress. You may have to go to your Dr. Good luck.
I just found out after 12 years, just by reading this article that I have a prolapsed rectum. It has bothered me before when going number 2, but I never thought much else of it. I am a 17 year old male and I just found this out. It now concerns me a lot. How do I get help? Also, I feel very messed up in the rectal and lower intestine area. I feel an uncomfortable numbness in the upper back area inside my rectum randomly every day. This greatly worries me. Is it a tumor? How do I find out?? Please help.
I seem to have a problem going to the toilet for the last 8 months. i seem to have to use my fingers to push upwards on the area between my vagina and anus to help get my poo out is this whats called a prolapse rectum. l have had tvt done a few years ago due to stress incontinence im 38years old and have five children my tvt has worked very well. I it is a prolapse rectum will i need surgery. I also suffer with memiplegic migraine can these two things be connected. I feel really embarrissed to talk to my doctor about this toilet problem.
Emma, dont be shy to speak to your GP.You will need a referral to see a Gastroenterologist. I believe a course of bowel retraining by a specialist nurse can help and you may not even need surgery. However,If you do not get 100% relief, then the colorectal team (surgeons) will take over. Goodluck!
I understand I have sim miler I avent been well since my girl was born 2007 afterbirth got stuck they rushed me to theatre injected my spine and gave me a manual extraction still not been fixed not fair is it x
I was told for years I had IBS. Two years ago I paid to see a consultant and was told I had diverticular disease. The constant pain and alternating bouts of diarrhoea/ small pellet like motions, absolute exhaustion, lack of concentration. The feeling that my rectum is dropping out when standing is ruining my life. I have also a vaginal prolapse and have a pessary inserted, I had a hysterectomy in 1976. I have to manually evacuate my rectum as my motions are so gundgy they seal it if not entirely cleared adding to the pain I have. Does anyone out there suffer these symptoms.
Have you had tests for a prolapsed bowel? I have all your symptoms and was diagnosed with diverticulitis a year after my hysterectomy in 2000. I have had the sigmoid colon removed and a resection which had many complications, Though I now still suffer from diverticulitis it is not as frequent. After some helpful physio for a prolapse bowel I can recommend that when you are on the toilet, put your feet on a low stool and lean forward with you elbows on your knees. You then need to take deep breaths using your diaphragm, if you try yawning taking deep breaths as you yawn, you will be using you diaphragm and will fell your abdomen moving rather than your chest and shoulders. This will help hard stools to move. Apparently we should all lean forward naturally anyway. It is the invention of toilets that stop our natural stance. If you think about crouching we automatically lean forward. This has been the best advice I had since my bowel problems began. Good luck. I would like to know how you get on.
I also suffer with diverticulitis - diagnosed 2010. Gas, constipation all the time. Then 2011 went to gasterentologist/surgeon to find out if anything could be done to help, had defacography told me to attend his wellness clinic, 8 sessions, on third visit nurse did a laser procedure for a "pocket" right at my rectum so I could evacuate better. I bled and could smell my own butt after that and dr. wouldn't see me because I quit his sessions! This made it worse, gas still a problem and now everyone at work can smell my butt too! Had to learn on my own how to evacuate completely in morning. I use gycerin suppositories if I don't feel like I had a complete evacuation. Sometimes, even that doesn't help and I get to work and the gas begins after sitting down for a while, which I cannot control long enough to get to the bathroom after that "procedure" for the pocket. Without a complete evacuation - then gas and pain. Evacuation sometimes consists of small pellets or even more bizzare, thin ribbon like sheets as if something has been smashed. I get pain on both lower sides. I have to take anitbiotics when the smell of the gas gets "horrible". I know I have infection then. But no dr. ever told me about that either...I found out on my own that antibiotics would make that horrible smell go away for awhile. Reading the post by Mary of bowel prolapse, I wonder if my problems began after my hysterectomy in 1995. If the divertic. is a result of incomplete evacuation. (I used to be regular like clockwork and no problems there) A few months after the hysterectomy, I experienced my first pain on my right side and the ribbon-like stool. If I jump around or stretch I feel the urge coming but sitting on the toliet... nothing! Get up and start walking...oops...gas! I went to a gynecologist recently and he said the pain and thin stool is a result of spasms! Finding a good doctor here is a challenge - I don't know who can help. I'm glad I read your posts!
I have severe,chronic problems with trying to pass bowel movements,they are always soft but i chronically strain all the time to get the stools out!Its is a nightmare to live with.I get pelvic and rectum pain,piles,nausea,bloatedness,feel ill all the time.I have been like this for many years,just always told it is ibs but a severe form,nothing has ever helped ease it.Sometimes i have to use a finger to get the stool out,disgusting i know,but it just wont move unless i strain and strain.I'm not typically constipated as the stools are soft and there is always plenty in my rectum to come out.I need help as i'm suffering so much,can anyone help,i'm desperate!?
Hi Diane. can't help but have the same problem. especially in mornings. All morning. It lasts most of the day and ruins family events or major days in life. very difficult to pass stools although it is very small and just recently i have started to notice an orange kind of film coating. can anyone help???
I have this exact same problem, even using my fingers. It's frustrating because you can feel the poo inside you and you get really bloated but it just won't come out. I've made myself bleed terribly by doing this and I'm scared I'm causing myself more damage in the long run. I'm sorry I'm not answering your question but just wanted you to know you're not alone.
Hi, Just completed a self check, I am 20 years old and have discovered multiple lumps within my breast, my mothers side has a history of cysts, but they arent painful and range from small pebble like lumps to ping pong sized ones, with one feeling like its two in one. last scan i had was when i was 17 and the doctor sent me for an ultrasound, they came up as benign lumps, there was only one then, now theres 6 - 8 lumps. is it worth seeing my gp over?
I would say it's definitely worth a visit to your gp. Even just to put your mind at rest.
