Hi doctor,

For about a month or so, I have been dealing with what I thought was hemorrhoids. I have used preparation H suppositories and some cream and they seem to help some. The pain starts after or during a bowel movement and there is blood on the toilet paper almost every time I wipe. Today, I decided to take a picture of it because it has not gotten any better and I am really scared it is something worse than hemorrhoids. Also, the irritated skin around my anus has some white spots.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It looks like skin growth outside the anus and not hemorrhoids (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
  • Do consult your nearby surgeon as early as possible and do whatever required. You may need a biopsy of the lesion for diagnosis.
  • You may also need a colonoscopy, some blood tests, x-rays and even CT scan to some extent. Do not afraid much.
  • You have to consult immediately; that is true even if it turns to be normal.
