Avatar f tn Hi All, I have got a 4-5mm intersphincteric abscess which clearly shows up on an MRI scan. When i went in for surgery to cut it out, my surgeon said he couldn't find the abscess and that there isn't anything he can do to help me as he cannot feel it or find an internal opening from where the abscess is draining inside the anal canal, despite the fact he knows its exact location on the MRI scan! I was devastated when he told me this as this abscess is ruining my life.
Avatar n tn So, i've noticed on and off that the inside of my anus has been hurting. i think it might be from having sex. Theres no bleeding, no apparent or obvious lumps or bumps, it doesn't hurt when i go to the bathroom, but it just hurts when i sit for long periods of time. if i had to explain what it felt like, i'd have to say like sitting on a bruise. I'm just kind of scared to talk about this to anyone in my family, so i wonder if this is something i should be concerned about.

1521377 tn?1291138368 for the past 4 months I have had a very uncomforatable anus problem, when I am sitting, it feels like I am sitting right on top of my anus, and, it hurts, I feel like deep tissue on my backside has nerve ending problems. I have been to a GP , he looked and told me I might have prostate infection and put me on antibiotic for two weeks. no help. I went to a dermatologist, he did a culture and said I had a yeast problem, two more weeks of meds, to no avail.
Avatar m tn I am not sure if it is a hemorrhoid or a abscess.
Avatar n tn A little over a week ago I developed what appeared to be just a pimple on my left butt cheek a couple inches from my anus. It grew progressively larger over a couple days, and also painful to sit on. Under the skin it felt very hard and about the size of a quarter, with some pus coming out. It started to diminish a couple of days ago, and is now smaller (still hard under the skin), much less painful, and dry skin around it is flaking away in a circle.
Avatar n tn on a Wed. i had my first colonoscopy. they diagnosed diverticulitis (previous to test i had some symptoms, but test was a regularly scheduled cancer screening). no treatment was proscibed. within three days i was in the hospital for a week, CT scan showed a colon abscess, i dodged emergency surgery and responded to IV antibiotics. now i'm two months out of the hospital and a GI and surgical followup recommends bowel resection. i've read that the bowel does not repair itself. what should i do?
Avatar n tn My husband had his colon, rectum, & anus removed 4 weeks ago. He has an abscess in the rectum area. The Intervention Radiology department put in a drain and he is taking antibiotics. Do you think that an abscess can be conquered? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/587000'>vitamins</a>.
Avatar m tn The small bump is on the hard surface from my anus leading to my genital area but it very close to the anus opening. While I have a growth coming out of my anus. It itches at times and when I use the bathroom I see blood on the paper. It's even painful at times to wash because the cut is open. I''m worried that it may be warts, hemorrhoids or something even more severe.

Avatar n tn 23 yo male whos got a bubble in my anus. when i need to "take a poop", after when im done i can see in the mirror that there's a bubble feeling like thing say like 1 cm in diameter in my butt. about 30secs-1min later its gone. i don't see it anymore. this has been happening for a month now. posting to see if this is something major. thanks.
Avatar f tn I have recently found a small pea-sized lump about 1cm away from the anus on the inside of my right cheek. I think I may be suffering from Piles, as the actual entrance is quite inflamed (not that much, though) and I have heard that that if probably the veins. (both my parents are heavy piles sufferers - so I assume it's heredity anyway.) The lump is fairly painful to touch. Not so much that it makes me cringe, but enough to make me know it's there.
Avatar n tn ive recently noticed a hardlike lump near my anus. its a little darker in color. i tried looking it up online and it seems to might be a abscess. im going into the doctors this week. im very worried on what to expect and what will happen. help.
Avatar n tn A year ago on the high protein diet I became constipated. Straining created some bleeding. I felt leaking and went to the doctor. I had an infected sore and went through two courses of antibiotics. The sore goes through cycles where it almost heals and then will begin again. Having any kind of long bowel movement will create bleeding. It will go for periods with almost no bleeding, then get started again. Over the past week, it has been worse and I have blood stains in underwear.
Avatar f tn Last night I noticed my dalmatian dog who is 14, had blood coming out of his anus. I was wondering if anyone had any information on this topic. I will be taking him to the Vet tomorrow morning. For the last two months, he has been pooping in his bed at night. Then last night I noticed he was bleeding from his anus. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar m tn All of a sudden I noticed yesterday that I now have a small pea sized white bump near my anus opening at the bottom. When I push down on it, it seems like it's deep in my skin but there's no pain. When I touch it it is slimy sometimes. This is very embarrassing to post but I'm scared out of my mind xD. Do I have cancer? And I've had no recent Diarrhea or blood in stool. I feel perfectly fine. Please help me figure out this conundrum.
Avatar n tn Just inside the anus are a number of small glands. If one of these glands become blocked, an abscess—an infected cavity—may form. An anal abscess is usually treated by surgical drainage, although some drain spontaneously. About 50% of these abscesses may develop into a fistula, in which a small tunnel connects the infected gland inside the anus to an opening on the skin around the anus.
Avatar f tn I&#39;m reading the posts here, and I am a man, but am having issues sort of the same. I have this very painful sore that develops on one side of my anus. It happens whenever I&#39;m into the third or fourth day of working out. It feels like there is a tear off to the side of my anus and then I develop such a painful rash that I can barely sit down. The only thing that makes it go away, is weeks of not doing anything strenuous.
Avatar n tn Yesterday my husband, aged 54yrs had drainage of an abscess? diagnosed following ct scan for a lump between anus and scotum which tripled in size over the previous week. Has been in pain since the May 08 followup colonoscopy which led to bleeding for 2 days, and then a month of ++ bleeding in September. Severe pain - on Tramal twice per day plus paracetamol 4 x day.
Avatar n tn it can get infected and cause symptoms like you describe. More seriously, you might have a perirectal abscess. The latter occurs when an infection starts inside the rectum and borrows through to the surface near the anus. Even though it is improving, you should see a health care provider. You may need an antibiotic and, depending on the exam findings, further tests to check out the abscess possibility.
Avatar f tn She may have an anal gland problem or a hard dry stool which irritates her anus, or GI parasites. Anal glands are scent glands that are found on either side of the anus in cats. Normally, these anal glands are emptied every time a cat defecates. Some cats have a bit of inflammation around that area and are unable to empty the anal glands in a timely fashion. The cause of the inability for a cat to empty the anal gland is unknown but allergies have been implicated.
Avatar m tn Just wait and see if the antibiotics clear it up just like any pimple leave it alone if it's still there after a few weeks then toget it checked. As for hemroids that's a myth they don't have to bleed to be that it's only when there inflamed and irratated that they burst and bleed. Hope that helps take care medinabear.
Avatar m tn First I was told it may be external hemorrhoids or anal fissure and abscess. (Sometimes I can feel something bulging from anus after bowel movement.) For 2 months I was on medicine for the above symptom. But now also I have the same pain at the right side and very small amount of leakage still continues when passing air or while walking. I have done proctoscopy and colonoscopy but they revealed nothing.
771263 tn?1235117009 a purulent discharge may indicate an abscess while a bloody discharge may be due to a hemorrhoid. On the other hand, a clear and mucus discharge may indicate rectal villous tumor. There is no specific term for this. But if this persists, have this evaluated by your doctor for proper diagnosis. Take care and regards.
1322789 tn?1284489709 The dr who operated told me after proctoscopy that I have haemorids also but we cant do any thing as you have infection due to abscess and that abscess was drained by operation and did not make its way ti inner side means my rectum or colon. But now after 2.
