Customer Question

I've just discovered a bump as long as my thumb between my anus opening and going up to my vagina. I'm wheelchair bound for the past 28 years and paralyzed from waist down. Have been using suppositories to pass stool. What type of doctor should I go to check it out, and could it be a hemorrhoid?

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

this could be a large cyst or a hemorrhoid

Dr. David :

or it could be a rectocele rectal hernia into the vagina

Dr. David :

you should see a general surgeon or a gyn doctor to get an examination of the area.

Dr. David :

you might need a vaginal ultrasound and finger rectal examination to feel what is going on there.

Customer:

I'm going to go to a Gyno and have it checked..

Dr. David :

good idea.

Dr. David :

I hope it works out well

Dr. David :

do you have any other questions?

Customer:

I was going to go see an oncologist, but perhaps as you suggested to go to a Gyno at first

Dr. David :

yes, see a gyn doctor first
