    Hello Dr. Can Piles be not next to the anus? Since last Friday a few painful lumps appeared in my bum, but about 1cm from the actually anus, could this still be haemorrhoids?

    Hi I have what looks like another anus between my anus and scrotum (much nearer my anus). It will expand and contract in line with my anus (if that makes sense),it is about the same diameter as a finger tip but it causes no pain or discomfort at all and ive had it as long as i can remember. What is it? Should I worry about it?

    I'm 15 and i noticed quite small purple lumps around my anus which get a little bigger and more purple when i push. They aren't painful or itchy but sometimes i notice a little bit of blood on the toilet roll and i don't go to the toilet that much (around twice a week). I'm pretty sure they are haemorrhoids but not sure if they are internal or external. i also have a small skin coloured lump a bit above my anus which isn't painful or itchy or anything, does it sound like a skin tag?? please help.

    I'm a girl of 17 and For the past two months, when I go to the toilet for a poo it's very very painful. It feels as if my anus is ripping. I had a look last a few weeks ago and there was a sort of light purpley bit on the rim leading inside of my anus. I then had a look a few days ago and it looks as if a piece of skin has been ripped off. It's extremely sore when I poo and a little stingy when I touch it. Throughout the past few years I've experienced poos that almost feel too big to come out and it hurts. What's wrong with me ?

    It probably ripped at some point because your poos are too big and solid, and now it can't heal because it gets pulled open again every time. I have the same problem sometimes but not as bad. I'm guessing constipation is your main problem, get some laxatives or try drinking more water and eating something like prunes.

    have you been to the doctor i have ibs (irrital bowl symdrome) tht causes problems when trying to have a poo

    Hi, I am a 20 year old male and I believe that I may suffering from haemorrhoids, and I was hoping that someone could help. When I pass waste it can be painful, and sometimes the waste does not all fall from my anus. Also, it can be very painful and it can take me around 20 minutes to clean myself. I was wondering if someone can confirm if they believe I have haemorrhoids, and if so, if they know of any effective remedies. Thanks.

    I have been having trouble with my anus for the past 18 months or so. My partner and I often have anal sex but I can no longer receive because I have a strong sensitivity just inside my anus. I suspected this was a result of piles but I tried every medication and diet possible to no success. My anus is even too sensitive to check myself with a finger. The area of sensitivity also seems to be swollen at the moment. What could this be?

    Hey how are you I am having similar symptoms to what you have had! All I want to really know is, has it gone away for you? I'm scared I will have it for life. It's so irritable and sore, I too participate in anal sex and it's put a real dampener on life for me and my partner at the moment ! I have had it for around 2 months. Thanks ! Please reply . I think it's called procitus which is inclination of the anus.

    For the last two weeks it feels like something is hanging out of my anus. It is so painful to walk, sit & go number 2 what can I do about it?

    About 4years ago my boyfriend accidently "fingered" my anus and after I never had any problems?but 3yrs ago when i go to toilet it is so painful and has a very very sharpe feeling, plus the amount of blood that comes from that area you would think I was on a period!! Plus at times my anus can get itchy? I had a look and have a lump outside my anus hole just like that mans on Thursday night but not as big or as rashy looking! But when watching how you fix his problem has put me off even more from getting it looked at!! Is ther any other option and Is it piles?

    I have a rather big one at the entrance to my anus and have been on 3 different creams to stop the irritation and soreness and have also been on laxatives to try and help and nothing has worked. I want to go and get it removed as it has caused a tear in the entrance to my anus making it extremely painful to go to the toilet and when i do it bleeds but my doctor doesn't seem to care and is avoiding wanting to remove it. :(

    I have a tear around an inch long from my anus going up in between my butt cheeks. My anus is a little sore but its the split in between my butt cheeks that is most painful. It constantly stings but there has been no blood or pus or anything. Any ideas what it may be or how to treat it? I have been applying sudocrem (nappy rash cream) will that help?

    I have the same condition..I have been to my G.P. and he has prescribed DILTIAZEM CREAM 2% which i have to apply for 6 to 8 weeks. I hope this helps.

    For the last 5 days or so,my rear end has been painful and sore. I purchased a tube of Proctosedyl from my local chemist as I can feel a small pea size lump of some sort just on the inside of my anus. This small lump is painful and sore,but I am not sure what this could be...could it be just a tear or a tiny haemorrhoid. I eat plenty of bran cereals for breakfast and plenty of fruit and vegetables. My question being? Are tears of the anus (rear end)feel like a small lump or something else which should be checked out by my doctor if it does not heal in a few weeks or so.

    For about 6 months now i have had a very painful "chapping" of the skin between my anus and my vagina. I have had normal discharge since i was 12 (i am now 25) and this has never caused irritation in this area before. This area becomes, very sore, often splits and bleeds, intercourse can be very painful, and when its really bad, going for a wee or a poo can be incredible painful. My GP has told me its thrush, but ive had thrush before and this is not it. can anyone help? canesten does help to sooth but doesn't get rid of it.

    Hi, I think I have skin tags around my anus. I've noticed 3. I've had some bood after wiping myself on the toilet for the last 3months on and off. The last couple of weeks I've been constipated and it was extremely painful to go to the toilet. My anus has been quite sore since and yesterday I noticed 3 what look like skin tags. (Although I'm not 100% sure what they are!) I'm petrified of going to the doctors because of a bad experience and I'm really scared of what will happened or even worse if it is something more serious.

    Ive just turned 15, and im very stunned as i have realised a lump on my anus. I looked, as i have been itchy at times- not alot though. Also, when I go to the toilet, im sometimes a bit constipated and I bleed a little. Ive never thought much of it but thought i'd have a check. I realised a small bulge outside my anus, it clearly protrudes, but is no where near as bad as the pictures at the top of the page. Its not painful, but im, very concious of my body and want to know what it is. I dont think its due to bad diet etc, as I eat well and exercise regularly. Im just worried that it might get worse, or is something other than piles. Somebody help me pleaseeee!!! Thankyou :) xx

    My best guess would be that you have thrush. It is usually easily treated and very common. Struggling to go to the loo would be unrelated to that if I am correct. It has been a while since you left this posting, so I hope you found some help, but if not, you can buy thrush treatment at your chemist, over the counter.

    I had a baby over 5 months ago n had a 3rd degree tear..sex is very painful iv been to the hospital since n the dr said massage the area between my vagina n anus..iv been doing this but sex is still painful also when i feel down below it feels like i have excess skin hanging out..can i request for this to be removed and feel "normal" down below again and make sex enjoyable again

    i seem to have a small grape sized lump as the base of the opening of my anus. i find it difficult to tell if it is painful because i am currently suffering from anal fissures which are very painful and itchy. the skin covering the lump is red and smooth, and it feels soft to touch rather than hard.
