Re: I'm 21, got a hemorrhoid, freaking out
I'm 37 and I got my first one recently, but it's there because you probably pushed too hard or sat on the toilet too long. That can happen, but you are pretty young, but I guess it can happen to anyone at any age. I don't know if the airforce will notice or not, depending on if they check that area or not, but if it shrinks, it shouldn't be noticeable. Try using Preperation H to help shrink it, or Americaine to numb it, or both, but one or the other between showers because you don't want to mix the two. Don't worry, you're not dying. Good luck!
