Can hemorrhoids cause thin stools ?
I've been having symptoms of hemorrhoids such as occassional bright red blood in stool , feeling of a lump in anus and in the past 3 days , I'm having difficult passing stool . I also feel like there's a small lump in anus . I'm constipated for the past 3 days and it's not only difficult to pass stool but the stool is also thin/ narrow . Given that my age is 19 , is this thin stool caused by hemorrhoids or a more serious condition like colon cancer ?
