Anal tear, rhoids, cancer?
Hi, I wondered if you could help me because I am getting really worried.
I just want to establish that I cannot go doctors, no way! I am too shy and its just not gonna be possible for me unless COMPLETELY neccessary.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, I am a hypercondriac so I can’t stop worrying and its making me ill and giving me pains “caused by my panic attacks of the situation”.
Basically, I have had blood in my stools and on the paper when I wipe for a few years and I have never done anything about it cos I thought it was just a tear - it only bled when I slightly strained, if I went easily then there was no blood. This went on for a while but then it stopped because I started to limit the amount I went to the toilet and tried to go as lightly as possible, the blood stopped about a week after this and then I could naturally continue to go normally.
That was two years ago, but recently it has come back (last 2 months). And it hasn’t stopped and blood comes out each time I go (whether I go easily or not now).
It is really worrying me, the blood is bright red but occasionally if I go toilet without really needing to and strain a tiny bit then most of the blood is red but there is also a small dark piece of blood in the stool. But I never got overly worried because it used to seem okay if i went lightly.
I think I have cancer and it is worrying me SICK, could you please help without pulling any punches? I have no pain or anything, just a slight discomfort after excreting, but i think that is because of my paranoia of it.
I suppose I will go doctors if it carries on much longer, just want some help on here first, PLEASE! Is there anything I can do to try to cure it? Incase its a tear or something.
Im counting on you guys for as much response as possible, please, just for this post - I am really relying on you, Im scared outta my mind.
Thank you so much if you can help me in anyway.
