At your age, it is highly unlikely that the lump you felt is a rectal polyp or growth. From your description, I think you may be having a thrombosed piles which can remain painful for sometime. Simple piles treatment from your family doctor may help with the condition. Howe...

I am sorry to hear that. This is indeed a tough question and I am not sure if I can provide a satisfactory answer. You must be aware that despite undergoing the same rigorous training which qualifies a doctor to perform a particular procedure, each of us has different skill-sets a...

Thank you Yvonne for asking this interesting question. It is quite common to have piles problem especially before and after delivery. But there could be other causes for the bleeding as well. Most of the time, it would improve greatly a month after delivery. Trying to softe...

Based on your story alone, it's very unlikely that you have C. Diff, nor do you need to worry about getting tested for it, especially because (I presume) that you are fairly young. C. Diff causes really smelly diarrhoea, and usually happens in the hospitalised elderly af...

Thanks for the very interesting question. IBD is certainly a disease that is becoming more common in Singapore and Asia, even though it was once more known to be a disease of the "West". No specific diet has been shown by studies to prevent, treat, or cure IBD. However, some diet...

From the sounds of it, you're most worried about cancer (which I can understand, given your father' s colorectal cancer) so let's address that first. Dull pain near tailbone -> anal pain - could it be cancer? Although doctors can very rarely say it's not...
