Okay so for about two years now I think I have what I believe to be hemorrhoids. I can see visible lumps upon inspection of my own bottom. Theu definitely appear to be hemorrhoids but I haven't had that confirmed by a doctor.
Symptoms I experience:
Sensation of pressure in the anus.
Can feel a lump when wiping.
Feel like it takes more effort to poo. (like I have to push harder, even though stool is soft)
Never experienced pain or bleeding.
The main thing I want to know is whether or not hemorrhoids can affect the shape of your stool? My stools appear to be normal shaped and thickness but then towards the end they thin out and become pointy. Also look at the texture towards the end it looks as though something is scraping up against the stool. Could hemorhoids be the cause of this? I read that colon cancer is the cause of thinner stools, but my stools are normal thickness it's just when it gets 3 quarters of the way, it begins to get narrower. And I'm in my early twenties so although cancer is a possibility, it's very unlikely.
I just wondered if anyone had one had any knowledge on this?
