I truly appreciate you all telling your stories for others to learn by.
I'm curious to know if any women who have been diagnosed here experienced a sensation to have a bm every time they went to urinate. (Not sure if question was graphic enough to warrant a "slightly graphic" tag, sorry)
Also, I have hemorroids. With 6 kids and a severe constipation problem what else would I expect, huh? lol
I have read posts where some of you thought you just had hemorroids to find you actually had cancer. I have one hemorroid that is fairly large and seems as if it's growing. Not sure if its external or internal and "protuding out". I thought I would have them removed. I called a gastroenterologist and the nurse said they do not do that but you would have to use a surgeon. Is this true? Also, did your dr. explain what the difference between the hemorroid and the cancer was, for instance soft/hard, bleeding constantly/occasionally, color, external/internal?
I also have had bleeding covering my stool on multiple occasions, but not all the time.
Just curious if this sounds like hemorroids or if it warrants further investigation, and if so, who would be the go to guy?
Thanks in advance and my best wishes for a quick healthy recovery!
