Very Nervous 22 year old male
I've been having symptoms that I thought were hemorrhoids for the past month or so; itchy, irritable anus, blood when wiping, a bump near the opening of my anus. Ate more fiber and was gentle thinking it'd go away, etc. It hasn't, so I made an appointment with a doctor today for a physical to check it out. He informed me it wasn't a hemorrhoid at all but was in fact a wart, with other lesions around the anus (HPV im assuming). This scared me, since the symptoms I was feeling earlier + the HPV may be anal cancer?!
Can anyone here shed any light on this? I plan on calling the doctors office first thing tomorrow to schedule a follow up appointment, but this really has me in shambles at the moment.
