Hail Comrades.

Just thought I should ask why, and what could possibly have causd this.

Ok recently I started having a feeling which I can only decribe as extreme discomfort, mostly in the leg, which my gp put down to meralgia paresthetica- a diagnosis with which I am content- and we left it at that.

However, recently I exprienced some disturbing twangs of pain in my rectal area, and this was followed by the disquieting discovery of a lump, around about the size of a pea in between my testicles and rectum and such.


Other worrying symptoms regarding which I am concerned, include a feeling like I am unable to empty my bowells and occasional stomach aches.

Of course I have done some background research, and am pleased to report I don't display some of the more disturbing symptoms.


There is no vomiting.

No excreting blood to which I am aware.

And any weight loss I experience is well within standard deviation.

There is the possibility it could be a small skin tag (those things are a frequent bain in my health) and, due to my grandfather having bc it (the other symptoms) could be perhaps psychosomatic.

Please help.

And I have a doctor's appointment in a couple of days though, due to what happened to my grandfather, the thing is I am unable to get to sleep as I am sick with worry regarding what this could be and such.
