Hi,

I think I may have a hemorrhoid. It appeared following a bout of loose stools, but since I haven't had one before, I am not sure that they feel like. I have made an appt with the Dr., but that is a week away.

This thing pricks when I go BM, stings intermittently throughout the day, bled initially but hasn't since I got it, and feels a little bruised. I have had it for three weeks. It is external-ish; i can touch it, it feels like the head of a pin, but I can't see it.

Does this sound like a roid to you?

thanks!

I think it is likely to be a skin tag, called a sentinel tag,
which is caused by the anal fissure which you said you
have in the other post.

It is probably minor, and will probably improve as your
fissure heals. Otherwise, I think the surgeon can snip
it off when you see him.

It may be, though I have a skin tag too. Is it common to get two skin tags from one fissure?

I think it's just one tag from a fissure, but
other tags grow by themselves too. Skin
tags are common as we age, due the anal
skin there getting somewhat loose from all
the years of "wear and tear".
