Hey,
I have survived anal cancer, and can tell you there is absolutely no way a diagnosis can be made without an exam by a colon/rectal surgeon, ...and possibly a biopsy of anal/rectal tissue.

Bleeding is a symptom hemmorroids  (sp?) and advanced anal cancer can have in common.  In my case my cancer was missed in a routine colonoscopy: my symptoms were thought to be result of either hemmorroids, fissure, IBS, or difficult birth many years ago:).

There is a vaccine.  It is caused by HPV....a virus.  A genital wart is often the only external symptom.

Best.

thank you for your response, in my case, last aug/28/2010 suddenly a little ball apear in my anus area with out any other symptom, then by october first had a humidity sensation for 1 week, but not clear if was due to our hot weather or other related issues,  now oct/22 the ball is gone and I do not have any other problem, I feel very good.

I did not had any pain or bleeding, can I consider that was an hemorroid?

I changed my life style since the ball appear, I stop drinking coffe, I'm drinking a lot of water and I feel very healty. I started walking every 2 hours (I used to be seat 10 hours a day at work)

Your comments will be appreciatted.
