Do I have an anal fissure, hemorrhoids, or colon cancer?

Postby lamonte4 » Sat Apr 02, 2011 9:02 pm

Today when I went to defecate before my stools came out of my anus, I saw blood drop out of their twice. Earlier when I went to the bathroom there was blood on the stools (not mixed like at the surface but barely noticeable) and some blood in the toilet water (bright red). I've been constipated for a little bit over a month and there's been bright red blood in the toilet every time I used the bathroom. When I wipe twice the blood goes away. This is worrying me a lot because when I googled what was happening to me the first thing that popped up was colon cancer. I've been straining within the time I was constipated (a little over a month) but I don't feel any pain at all. I feel just fine, no pain sitting down or after I'm done with the bathroom or anything. I feel normal basically. Sometimes it can hurt getting it all out but it doesn't hurt after, but my main concern is the blood that I saw. So what do I have? How was it caused? How do I treat this and make it stop? Thanks.

You seem to have anal fissure.
Avoid constipation,drink lot of fluid,increase fiber in diet.
Consult DOC and get treated,it is tataly curable.
It is not cancer,

This is more than likely NOT colon cancer but is directly related to your constipation. It could be either an anal fissure, a rectal tear or a hemorrhoid - all of which usually seal themselves back up and heal once you change your diet and keep your stools soft. You can go to WebMd.com and type in constipation and read what you need to be changing regarding your diet and daily water intake to keep the stools soft and then, you can type in the search line of the same website "hemorrhoids" and read up on how to care for these. Changing your diet is all you need to do to make all of this stop.

Your diet is causing hard stools that is where the bright blood is coming from.
A change of diet more fluids and a stool softener taken as directed will clear up this problem.
Internal bleeding is dark red, bright red blood indicates hemorrhoids or anal fissure.

Hemmeroids and Fissures. I have had them for 30 years. Constipation will bring it on. Increase the fiber in your diet. You actually need 30 grams a day, which seems impossible to get. I have the same problem.
