Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you. I am reviewing your question and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thanks for waiting.
Do you have a family history of cancer?
Do you get frank blood as well?
Do you have symptoms like weight loss, loss of appetite, mucus in stool, constipation, diarrhea etc?
Have you tried anything so far?
Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. As per your symptoms, I don't suspect cancer. In my opinion yes it can be hemorrhoids or it can be something like colon polyp. The ensuring fact in your history is the betterment of the symptoms off and on. In case of cancer, the symptoms shouldn't have gotten better in between. The worsening of the symptoms after spicy food also make hemorrhoids more likely. I would suggest you to use OTC Hemorrhoidal cream twice daily for 15 days and take OTC metamucil twice daily. If your symptoms persist after 15 days, see a gastroenterologist. I reassure you that there is nothing to worry and you are going to be alright. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. Regards
Thanks a lot for your Input. You can take otc tablet claritin once daily for that. Regards
