Couldn't find what you looking for?


I'm into body building, I have had 2 anal abscesses in the last 5 yrs. Want to know if lifting weights can cause anal abscess?


Hi, my name is Jason. It's a good thing that you're into bodybuilding but, unfortunately, that's probably the reason for your abscesses to reappear twice in the last five years. Did you see someone about this problem yet? If you hadn't visited a specialist, I strongly suggest you to do so because it might lead to an anal abscess. Also, I would recommend you to stop lifting weights for some time, until you consult with your doctor about this, in order to find what's causing your abscesses to appear. Keep that in mind, to go to a specialist as quick as possible.
