Has anybody had any experience with hemorrhoids? I always knew I had hemorroidal tissue but when I was checking up down there, there is a bluish/purple swollen thing and my rectum was purple after having a bowel movement. Also, there was a tear on the hemorrhoid. I can't really see properly down there, but could it be a lesion? I didn't have anything where my primary OB site was. Should I got to the doc to get checked up? Or is it either way, H or H, I just need to live with it?
