Hi all, I'm back again with another question.   Eighteen months now since my BC was removed and ileostomy reversal smilewinkgrin    I am feeling wonderful in myself, still have a few frequent bms which sometimes leave me with a sore butt, so have been putting cream just inside my anus.  Last night however, I discovered a hard lump about 1.5cm inside and it has really got me worried!   Has anyone out there had anything like this??  it is not sore and I wouldn't have known it was even there if I hadn't of put my cream inside.  I'm terrified of going to my Dr.  (I know I should) but I just don't want to hear bad news. sad
Hoping someone can put my mind at ease and thanks again for all your great members and helpful column.
Cheers and wish you all a very merry and healthy Christmas! yeah

Did you say you had a reversal so you are actually have bowel movements through your rectum? If so it could be a hemorhoid

IT could also be scar tissue if you have ever had stitches in that area.But you need to see your DR. as soon as you can.try not to worry.

Thank you so much for your replies, it sounds like it could well be hemoroids as I haven't had stitches in that area and yes I can have normal bowel movements. (for which I am so grateful ) I certainly know what mom9mom is saying about one step at a time and give thanks to God for every step.
I feel so much better just hearing from you all and really appreciate your feedback.
