I'll start off by saying that my father died of rectal cancer at the age of 39, and was diagnosed at the age of 32.

A couple of months ago, I found a small lump in my anus, that hurt every time I went to the bathroom(and sometimes when I sat down, if I had been constipated). Said lump is sort of blue-ish. It feels soft when I press it. I haven't had any sort of bleeding, only when I was constipated, and it was too much for my anus.
I am scared, as I don't know if it is a hemorrhoid, or cancer. I'm only sixteen, but the young age at which my father was diagnosed(Note that he was diagnosed, not that he got it at 32), worries me. My girlfriend has asked me several times to go to the doctor, as she had a look, and she described it as "not normal looking", and said it looked swollen.
I hope you will be able to give me an answer from the information provided.
Have been having problems for around 5 months and sadly have not had much luck with any gp that I have seen not one has given me a digital exam and now I have badly thrombosed piles and have been forced to go to A&E for pain control including taking entonox while they are massaged by the doctor the pain to begin with was the worst I have ever felt infact I could not carry on without the gas.

I now have to wait who knows how long for a operation and hope A & E will look after me until then I am at my whits end and getting desperate.
I am a 19 year old male that got my first serious hemorrhoid around a month ago, there was slight bleeding when using the toilet however apart from that with ointment and care the pain subsided.

However three days ago the pain returned as bad as it was last time, yesterday I began bleeding heavily (leaving one pair of underwear ruined) and subsequently I went to my local hospital who said I should see a consultant this morning.
I did that, and he was useless, however confirming it was an external hemorrhoid that had ruptured. I have been booked for a camera in 8 weeks time and his only advice was to change everything about my lifestyle (time to give up all indulgences yay).
It has not stopped bleeding, and even walking from my local supermarket left me having to wash my anus as well as changing my underwear again.
My question is, how long will it take for the bleeding to stop, and is there anything I can do to help stop the bleeding as in my current state I don't want to leave my bed let alone face the prospect of work. I live in the UK so luckily healthcare is free, however I am open to home remedies as well.
Have any you tried banding for piles what are your thoughts and experiences?

I've had "bloody" diarrhea for 2 years now, it comes in kind of flare ups, it first starts with normal diarrhea and then i get a lot of blood!

I had a colonoscopy last year because doctors thought i could have crohn's or ulcerative colitis but everything looked normal, not even an hemorrhoid or fistula or anything, but the thing is i wasn't having any symptoms when i had the colonoscopy done, i didn't have diarrhea or bleeding or anything!
So is it possible to have hemorrhoids that are only visible when i get the bleeding? or whatever else..
Please answer ASAP!! im very worried, i have a doc appointment in nov 25th but i've had bloody diarrhea for 2 weeks now, so if he orders another colonoscopy i will be already without diarrhea, as i know how long these diarrhea attacks last.
They were massive, Dr said she could barely get them all inside the tube They use to do the stapling. The recovery was horrible, but i I am feeling better now. Still can't eat anything to Hardy just because out will make me bleed when it comes out.

I had op 17 days ago and feel today like I can finally see the light! After suffering the agony, bleeding (continually wearing san towels) and life changing effects they bring you i finally decided to have the op. I have had a terrible 17 days 2 visits to docs and 2 to hospital. part of the prob was caused by managing pain relief, allergic to anti-inflammatories, Tramadol gave me a panic attack and made me vomit, been on 60mg codeine 4 X per day and have been more or less sleeping in the bath. Saw surgeon day 15 who told me the op had worked and delay in recovery was because i couldn't take anti-inflam. He offered me morphine for the terrible pain which I declined. Had 6 hours sleep longest since op (only been cat napping due to pain) so cut down on codeine all positive today. Then I went the loo and felt a lump come out like my old piles (only 1 use to have quite a few), now stressing that I have had a prolapse. The surgeon warned me I would have flaps of skin left but this feels more hard and shiny sorry to be graphic!! Just wondered if anyone else had experienced this and whether it would go down again, I have never been able to push them up as some people mention.

I was put on antibiotics and steroids for an infection, but now I'm dealing with what I assume is a rather large hemorrhoid. My anus is very swollen and tender, but there is no itching or bleeding. I got some OTC cream but it's not helping...same with a warm bath and using wipes instead of tissue. I would feel silly going to the doctor for this, especially because I don't have a trusted GP, and my "lady" doctor says it's not their problem. Can you even have a hemorrhoid without itching? The pain is unbelievable, and comparable to the level of pain associated with my c sections. So what should I do? And do you have anything that works for you? Natural methods preferred.

I've been to see a consultant this afternoon and he has recommended a haemorrhoidectomy and the process to that is now in motion. Apparently my piles are Grade 3.

I have to say that the thought of this operation does not really appeal, especially after I've read various reports of just how unpleasant and painful the process is.
I've read about the HALO method which doesn't seem quite as barbaric but when I mentioned this to the consultant he seemed to dismiss it.
I have just made an appointment to chat with my GP who referred me to the consultant to see if he can offer any possible alternatives.
One thing the consultant did say was that if the piles were left untreated they could become ulcerative which obviously would then make the whole situation more serious.
While I realise the clock is now ticking down to the time when I go in for an operation in the end it's my body and I have the ultimate say on whether I go ahead with it.
I'm back again ! 7 days ago I had banding for two further piles that the NHS didn't want to treat privately however now when I fart or try to pass bowel movement all that passes is bright red blood I'm very worried what could the bleeding be ?.

I've been having problems with hemorrhoids for many years now. Probably about 8 years or so (I am 27). It has gotten worse in the last 2-3 years I'd say. How do I tell if this is internal or external hemorrhoids?

I've read up on the symptoms and I'm not sure how to read this. For me, the flare up only occurs after a bowel movement. If i go to sleep right after, the hemorrhoids is always gone. Sometimes the hemorrhoids will go away on its own after a few hours on its own (how? i dont know).
All i know is that it never goes on for more than 1 day continuously because it always goes away when I go to sleep. Any idea which type I have? Its gotten to a point where I dread bowel movements because it makes walking difficult (unless I find a comfortable laying position where it will go away on its own). Hoping there is a way to make the hemorrhoids go away within an hour of the bowel movement.
Since the beginning of July I have been suffering with what I was to believe were piles very sore bottom and sometimes small amounts of blood on wiping, after about a month I went to the docs and saw a nurse prescriber who never did a dre but said I had a yeast infection as had recently finished a course of antibiotics. About a week later they were no better and I thought I might have an anal fissure as it was so painful having a Bm so went back to the doc who did a dre and treated me with rectogesic until I was due to see the gastro doc as I had had a flex sig a year ago and was due a follow up, although weird stuff it seemed to help. 3 days later I saw the gastro guy and he looked with a anal scope and said he could feel 2 hems and to stop taking rectogesic, I then got better for 2-3 weeks and then seemingly had a relapse after being constipated and was straining. So I've used the piles cream had no blood symptoms but can feel 2 little spots just inside rectum and one slightly bigger one further up by the sphincter. The two are pimple sized and the other is pea shaped all are quite hardy sore to touch! I have absolutely no idea what they are or what to do next but they are much sorer after a Bm?? Been to doctors 5 times now with no real solution...

Doctor has given me a working diagnosis of IBS with reflux and hemorrhoids (as i pass blood, sometimes frequently and then sometimes it can stop for weeks at a time).
I've requested that he refers me to the gastroenterologist as I'm not satisfied with his diagnosis for a couple of reasons.
The main reason is that when i pass blood, it isn't always bright red ... sometimes it is darker ... it's never really dark or black, but it's just simple a medium shade of red ... can internal hemorrhoids cause this color of blood on the stool? (There is never a lot and Its never mixed in with the stool, it usually either streaks the outside of the stool or is mixed in with mucus at the start of my bowel movement).
It's the darker colour of the blood that makes me think it's coming from further up the digestive tract though which makes me think it's not hems.
I am posting this because I suspect that I have piles. It all started with minor constipation and with in 2 days it got severe (when I say constipation I mean hardness to pass stool). However, I still go to the loo daily. Anyway, long story short, I have been having severe bleeding, pain and constipation for over a month now. Without having a break. I suspect its piles because it runs all along my dad's family. But I am starting to fear this as it hasn't gone away yet. Is this normal? The blood is fresh and bright. However the pain at the bottom is unbearable. I am already taking enough amount of insoluble fibre, drinking plenty of water, and always had gone to the gym on daily basis. Could anyone throw light on this scenario and tell me if this is normal? I am thinking about going to GP but my work doesn't provide me the chance to do so.
