Does having colorectal cancer means you also have hemorrhoids?

They are separate issues.

Oh because mine had diagnosis of hemorrhoids first before they knew it was colon cancer. Thanks abrub

In an earlier post that is what they thought my bleeding was caused from but it was from a rectal tumor. I'm sure some people can have both, but I'm not sure.

People can have both, I am sure of that.  My mother in law went through the same, Kim.  She thought it was piles and instead it was colon cancer.

hi thanks for the respond. Yes it did, that is why from time to time i checked when i had my bowel movement. I ask my doctor about it and she said sometimes hard stool, soft or even diarrhea can affect hemorrhoids because it is a "sensitive nerve" (not sure with the right term) so it may cause blood as long i had my colonoscopy and it is okay there is nothing to worry about.

Yes hard stool can cause the hemmroids to bleed very much.  Glad the colonoscopy came out good and nothing to worry about. Hmm I'm confused as on another post it said that they discovered a tumor on you?  I'm sorry if I'm not reading your post correctly.

Hi Kim. Yes its in my sigmoid which the doctor said near the rectum so most probably the bright red blood seen was cause by the tumor and mistake it with my hemorrhoids or sometimes my hemorrhoid was affected due to diarrhea and I gave too much pressure during my bowel movement. I was in and out of the hospital because of bleeding during I defecate. They have not suspected it with colon cancer because it is quite imposible for my age. Then on August 2016 where there is already stomach pain they decided to have colonoscopy. That's the time they discovered tumor/mass in my sigmoid area. By the way, I have grade 2 internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids. 

It was my second year of colonoscopy and doctor said my colon is clean. What I am scared of is the metastasis. The one I'm telling about a mass found in between my doughlas pouch and ovary was not seen during ctscan. There is thickening due to post radiation effect and my cea is slightly increasing. By next year I am scheduled for another test.
