I am a 39 year old male and in relatively good shape (height and weight proportionate) and eat pretty healthy.
I recently was diagnosed with hemmorroids (which were thought to be internal) but have not totally gotten rid of my symptoms. It's been about 4-1/2 weeks and I still have symptoms such as itching / burning sensations as well as a constant dull pain. All of these symptoms are much less than they were in the first couple of weeks but not totally gone yet. I did have some blood present around the third week (my second visit to the doctor) but it was only found when I cleaned the area..not in the stool. I have yet to see any more blood since. When I use the bathroom it doesn't hurt but afterwards the dull pain intensifies for a while. I also feel as though my rectum has a constant "pressure" feeling as if it were weighted.
Is it normal to have these symptoms this long? Should I go in for a Colonoscopy even though I have no cancer history and don't fit the profile? Could I have something else?
