Hello doctor,

For the past six days, I feel softening continuously around the anal area when I walk. Now, I am suffering from slight constipation. I have no hemorrhoids and no staining in the undergarment. I have no blood in the stool and no pain in the anal area and also on bowel movement. Then why do I feel so? Please help.

Hello doctor,

I do not have piles. For rectum and colon checkup, is abdomen ultrasound test best in place of sigmoidoscopy? I do not want to get sigmoidoscopy.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • For rectum and colon examination, colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy is the best.
  • Ultrasound abdomen is not helpful.
  • Take the above suggested medicine for 15 days, if not improved then go for sigmoidoscopy.
