Colon Pimple

It appears that I have some sort of large pimple, of some sort about 1/2 inch inside of my colon. It is about the size of a dime. I don't think it is a pilonidal cyst due to the location and was just wondering what it might be.

Probably a hemmoroid.

Hi, Drew.

How in the world did you find it?

With no more information I would have to agree with beth. An internal hemorrhoid would be in that location and would feel like a "pimple".

However, the only way to be sure would be to have a proctoscopic exam. This is a very simple exam with a 2" tube with a light on it that ANY physician can do in her office.

Since there are much more serious things it CAN be I would recommend such an exam ASAP.

Let us know what you learn.

Walt
