Rectal bleeding, bloating, long thin,bowel movements, feeling like I had a hemorrhoid
Rectal bleeding
Tail bone pain, progressively got worse, couldn't sit. Anal pain. Rapid weight loss.
Itching; thought I had hemorrhoids; diagnosed with AIN 3 anal pre-cancer which later developed into stage 1 anal cancer
Pre cancerous symptoms
Symptoms that caused me to make the incorrect self-diagnosis of hemorrhoids, starting with small amounts of blood on toilet paper, which eventually increased to levels that were alarming.
rectal bleeding..I had a colonoscopy two years prior and had a clear screening. Because of this I assumed the bleeding was a hemorrhoid and didn't go to the doctor until the bleeding was clearly becoming much worse.
None, was found during colonoscopy. Although a few weeks before I had some itching and slight bleeding. I thought it may be a hemorrhoid.
Anal pain ,bleeding felt like hemorrhoids
Blood in stool & change of bowel habits
Rectal bleeding
external growth, painful bowel movements
Was diagnosed with anal cancer during a routine colonoscopy in 2017 at age 51.
Bleeding. Contacted Dr immediately. Got diagnosed within a month. I’m realising some people’s symptoms scream at them while others just whisper.
After starting a fruit/vegetable cleanse (specifically carrot juice every day!), had blood clot with bowel movement. Scheduled my first colonoscopy -- at 58 yrs of age -- which wasn't until 4 months in the future. After stopping the carrot juice, the blood clot in bowel movement went away. Occasionally felt pressure in my bum, but for the most part, no symptoms.
what I thought was a large hemorrhoid turned out to be anal cancer. Itching and some mild bleeding
Pain and bleeding
Rectal bleeding, even when not passing stool. Primary Care Physician thought it was a hemorrhoid after she examined me. I finally saw a GI Specialist after waiting 2.5 months (PCP did not request a rush) had a colonoscopy within three days, quickly diagnosed on 2/4/2021 (which is World Cancer Day)
Prolapse, bleeding
