WELCOME TO THE ANAL CANCER COMMUNITY: This Patient-To-Patient Community is for discussions relating to Causes, Clinical Trials, Complications, Diagnosis, Living With Anal Cancer, Prognosis, Questions to Ask Your Doctor and Treatment Options.
I have never had anal sex. I have an itch and a scratch in the anus area. sometimes i feel like there is leak. i feel flappy skin could be a wart. I don't know. i never have anal penetrations. i am straight . had sex once. does it sounds like it. blood in stool, blood sometimes when i whip. i am scared could sue some support.
I see you posted in HPV forum as well as here. Hope you get helpful responses. Altho' it seems clear a couple of strains of HPV cause anal cancer...and that warts can be a symptom....every case I have read about is different. So...best is to get your doc to check.
Risk factors are multiple partners ....altho' I know of one woman who had only one...her husband...and got anal cancer. She blogs and wrote a book...which isn't very helpful, frankly. In my case, the profile seemed to fit ...struck when I was over 70...fast growing...a skin cancer really...missed during colonoscopy..etc etc. So...all I know for sure is to get checked if you have a lot of bleeding.
Please don't jump to conclusions when you don't even know yet, you will cause yourself unnecessary worry and anxiety! It could be alot of things from hemmroids to IBS to a broken blood vessel from straining when you have a bowel movement, but it is an indication that you see your doctor post haste. As humans we always think of the worst scenerios first, 8 out of 10 times they are wrong so why worry yet? Try to keep emotions out of it and just do the logical thing. No need to worry yourself to death yet. I am betting its something not so earth shattering! Good luck hon. Hug♥
i went to gp said nothing seems wrong, but gave me a colonoscopy forum and an ultra sound. i hope i am ok. i am getting scared. agggghhh i really hope its nothing. i hear you it is just i have some irrational fears i find. iunno.
Relax. You have taken appropriate steps to insure you are well.
Agree with aheart....we do tend to jump to 'worst case scenarios'....just human...and with all the scary news bombarding us ...as well as superficial answers to all our medical issues (heh) available via Dr. Google....well..
The colonoscopy and ultra sound will give you definitive answers...you and your doctor can take it from there.
BTW: anal sex is not the primary culprit...so throw that thought out!
I hope i am well. i do seem to jump to conlusions. I am just frightened. My stool has returned to normal for past few days. the only thin that has changed is that i eat yogurt and drink green tea. I just don't want my life to be over. I am only 20 ears of age. I made one mistake slept with the tone girl. I should have just waited....
iunno what to think. i just want to be ok. i hope i am the major thing is that the stool sometimes feel like there is less resistance so i start to think it got thinner but it other wise started looking normal again,. i thought i was ok. i just want to be a good person. i don't know why i do this. i just need to be ok. I am afraid tod ate anyone i feel terribly scared. i stopped living my life i am just hoping for the best. I know warts themselves are not a big deal and i know that anal cancer and oral cancer are rare. and for it to appear so quickly a year and a half does not make sense. i am gonna do the the tests but during a break in my school year. i just need to be ok.
i know that something i should look itnto but does it sound like it could be anal cancer? its my first and only sexual experience i am a hero sexual male. i am 20 years old been year and a half since them. i just want to be ok thats where my fear is somcing from it itchts, and sometimes i i have bowel movements then i have another one after. sometimes the stool is thin sometimes it is normal sizes. i just want to be ok. i am just scarred need word of comfort that s my whole issue.
I am willing to give you comforting words. That is what MH is all about: support for those of us struggling with fears we may not discuss with family or friends.
From all you have said...it really doesn't seem you have anal cancer. But what you do have is mega fears and anxiety. Can we address that?
Only a doctor can tell you if you have a serious problem. The variety of stools you are having could be ..well...anything. I'm betting your gastric woes are at least partially driven by anxiety.
So we work on that ....and let a doctor put your mind at ease with definitive exam/tests. Would you say you are obcessing about anal cancer? If so, what is the core reason for this? One sexual experience?
While it is possible to contract an STD from one sexual encounter...anal cancer is a stretch.
Did you contract the HPV strain that could eventually lead to anal cancer? Well..once more...an exam is what is needed. Even if you did...it might take years for a serious condition to emerge.
Stay calm....put your thoughts on other things....post anytime here ....
I am nearing the date for a colonoscopy, i am jsut geting more nevous and i jsut want to be ok.I knwo statistically i should be ok and the science also states that it is to early for it to be something serious, i am just nevous. i do know when i eat yogurt my stomache tends to be better. the blood in stool still has not stopped. but when i eat yogurt it atleast appears tos top. also i feel like there is some discharge of yellow coming out even after i wipe i see it sometimes appear again. i just want to be ok. i guess all i can do is get checked out.
