So a couple of weeks ago I noticed some bright red spotting on my TP as I wiped. I brushed it off as nothing since it only happened during one BM. The past 2 days I have had some discomfort during BM and it concerned me a little so I did a self inspection during a shower. I noticed a small bulge on the left side of my rectum. It is right on the boundary of what I would consider internal and external. It seems slightly tender but not exactly painful.
I am only 28 and don't have a family history of cancer. I have a check up in a few weeks. Should I try and move it up or be concerned or does this just sound like a hemorrhoid and just mention it at my check up? The location makes me think it's just a hemorrhoid but I got paranoid after doing a little googling and learning that the symptoms are very similar. I'm barely overweight and haven't exactly gotten a great amount of dietary fiber over the past year. Could these be contributors to a hemmorhoid?View Thread
