Hello there, my name is Brian and I am 18 years old. About 4 days ago I was fine but in the evening I started to feel a tightness on my bottom. My symptoms is that my rectal feels like a ball is shoved up there. It feels tight, painful, and it always feels like I have to empty my bowels. I've been reading on Hemorrhoids and Anal Fissures and it saids that there should be blood in your bowels. For me that hasn't happened yet.. This pain is driving me nuts. Also I was told that this is happening to be because I've been eating a lot of fried food over the week since it was on my holidays (Partying, Going Out Etc.) So is it possible that what I have is Hemorrhoids or Anal Fissures? Please Help.

Thank You

Oh and sorry for the poor Grammar and Spelling. :)

  • Hi, Brian. Hemorrhoids is very common condition and it is not caused simply by eating a lot of fried food. Also, there may be no blood in the stool. Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in the anus and rectum. Hard tender lumps near the anus, pain and itching are certain hemorrhoids symptoms. Probably you could diagnose yourself by visual examination. Take a look at causes and tips on how to manage hemorrhoids: http://www.healthassist.net/conditions/hemorrhoids.shtml
