    Anxiety about bowel/anal cancer for 6 months. Please help

    Hi,

    Since giving birth 6 months ago I thought I developed piles. These went for about 3/4 weeks but since have returned.
    My symptoms are pain when going to the toilet and for hours after, hurts to pass gas, blood when in a line on stool. I'm not constipated or having diarrhoea. But as this has gone on for so long I'm starting to worry, I cant feel any lumps around anus, but there is what looks like a soft skin tag???
    I also have severe back pain all day long, dr said this is because of strain not anything to do with bowels but I'm still concerned
    Thanks, any input appreciated

    Sounds like an anal fissure. I've got one that opens up every now and again. Mine started not long after having my first child. I've got a skin tag too.

    How long did they last and how did you end up getting rid? Its horrendous to cope with!
