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♥

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.

You are probably within the age range that may benefit from the HPV vaccine...

Hey...re: HPV vaccine.....it is simply one of the ways to protect yourself ...think of the shots you got as a baby...to protect.....

If you are young and plan to be or are sexually active it is a preventive measure my oncologist thought all should take advantage of....

Just saying...

Hey there...
Just caught your last post.....

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.

Once the colonoscopy is done.....you and your doctor will be able to discuss issues with information from test.

You are doing the sensible thing.  Your anxiety will subside after being checked.

Best wishes.
