Post Hemmorrhoid?

I noticed a few days ago that it would hurt when I would wipe after takin a crap, so I just ignored it thinkin it would just go away, but here I am, a few days later and it still hurts when I wipe.

I felt it in the shower and it feels like there's something bumpy near my cornhole.

What can I do?

Yeah, that sounds like a hemmorrhoid. It may flare up from time to time, then kind of go away by itself, then it may come back months later. If it is hurting, itching, or bleeding, try using some hemmorrhoid ointment such as Preparation-H.

Well, the only time I'm bothered by it is when I'm wiping. Other than that, nothing.

So, will Prep-H help get rid of this or will I have this forever?

Is it common for younger men to get hemmrhoids?

I'm only 22.

What could've caused this?

Yeah, its not uncommon. I think I first got them when I was around 25. Doctors aren't 100% sure what causes them, but some theories are repetitive vibrations and friction that can cause irritation to the anal area (for example truck drivers can have a high incidence of hemmoroids), "forcing" your stool out may cause them, and possibly anal masturbation/sex, especially if its with large objects, rough, or without lubrication. The theory is these things puts extra pressure on the anus, and it could force a vein to pop through the muscle of the anus, resulting in a hemmoroid.

Prep-H and time will help the hemmoroid go away, but they don't go away forever. They kind of are always there, but don't flare up all the time. For example, I haven't had a hemmoroid flare up in like 4 or 5 months now - its like they never happened. But I know some day they'll be back again.

damn, this sucks, especially since I go #2 twice a day, so I won't be without this pain.

Hopefully it'll go away.

thanks for the info

It will go away but as the other poster said , it will come back some day. You can have them surgically removed also and that would be the end of them.

Yes! They definitely can bleed. Sometimes the amount of blood can be alarming. Since they are veins, which happen to be sticking out where they don't belong, they can be ruptured sometimes by a bowel movement, or wiping.

Its usually nothing to worry about despite the way it looks. However, it shouldn't happen often. You may get a bout of bleeding hemmeroids for a week or so (usually less), and that's fine. But if it bleeds every day, for several weeks at a time or months, etc., then that is a problem that needs a doctor. Otherwise, just go easy on it (don't wipe aggressively, use soft toilet paper), and apply Prep-H or similar to the area twice a day, and it should clear up.

i used to have them also what a pain they were. I started to bleed down there and let it go on for about a year because i was embarrased to go to the doctor but after i heard to some of the problems that the bleeding i got my nerve to go to the Dr. and not only did i have hemmerroids but had a small tear in the opening of my rectum caused but pushing to hard while taking a dump the Dr. fixed it with no problem and took away the hemmroides not have no problem it took awhile to heal (about a week) and now there gone go talk to a Dr. and get them removed it is quick and simple dont be embarrassed many guys get them no need to live with the pain

I don't know of any way besides surgery to permanently repair a hemeroid. But if you can prevent the irritation that causes them to flare up in the first place, they can settle down to a point that they're practically not even there anymore. For example, don't strain or push during bowel movements, avoid heavy lifting if you can, and avoid things that you know irritates them.
