Ok.... This isnt Irritable Bowel Syndrome..... but I couldnt find a topic/section that would be suitable.....
Ok... I am currently being treated for Genital Warts (on my anus) - The exterior ones are more a less gone via 2 treatments of lovely cryotherapy.... thats when they get a fire extinguisher thing, and spray them, and give u frost bite on your a**.
Anyhow... I was instructed to treat with Aldara cream.... terible stuff. BURNS LIKE A MUVA*****.
Moving on....
On my second treatment, I told the doctor,I suspected there were a few internal warts, he examined... and apparently, Warts are ***his thing***, and he concurred, there were some inside my anus.
He said
"Although the Aldara says not to be used internally, it should be safe enough to treat the internal warts"
I was like "Ok.."
Anyhow, I began treatment, and now, I have found that one of the warts, if it can be described as a wart, is long, and hangs down from the roof of my anus.
I can only describe it from feeling....(prodding) and it feels like its about a half inch long, maybe slightly give or take, and I seriously dont remember it being like that before.
It makes passing solids extremely hard, because the solids stick to it, then try to bring the top of my anus with it as it leaves my body.
Im somewhat concerned that the warts may have developed into something more serious, from what I have heard, Warts can turn into Cancerous growths, and it is infact impossible to have Bowel Cancer without having the HPV virus first.
Can anyone confirm if Warts can indeed become long, slender, yet sensitive pieces of flesh that hang from the body as mine has?
Im half tempted to try and cut the blasted thing off, but its quite a tricky place, and surgery is best left to the docs. I would say its about half a centimeter thick, but about half inch long.
I do have a follow up to go to at the clinic in June, although, I suppose I could get seen sooner if I use my GP, I just dont like my Family Doctor being privy to sexual health related stuff.... I suppose thats what makes GUM clinics so popular.... oh... and sexually transmitted diseases I suppose.

Welcome to HealingWell and I am glad you found us.  My best advice after reading your post is to look into making an appointment with a Gastroenterologist to take a look at what is going on with you.

If you do have some kind of growth going on in that area it really should be evaluated by a specialist. 

Please do not try any self administered surgery at home............. :-) .

Remember as a patient the physicians are required to keep your information confidential. 

Take care and please get this problem evaluated properly.

Yes, definitely don't cut it off. If it's a skin tag (not related to STD), then it's WAY BAD to cut it off. Someone on here had one cut off by a doctor who thought it was a hemmroid and it caused major, major problems.

Could also be a hemmroid. Or it may indeed be some sort of genital wart. If you did not have this dangly bit when you first saw your doctor for the warts, then you should call the office and speak to the nurse to see if warts do that or not. You may need to go back in and be looked at again.
