I noticed something of the size of cowpea popped out at the outer tip of my anal tract about 8 years ago, then it disappeared after some days. About 4 years later, it popped out again, and as it did before, I was hoping it’d disappear, but this time it came and stays (I hope it disappears again by God’s grace😭). Unlike the first, this time I’ve had bloody stooling, itching at the outer part of my anal tract, and little pains and strain in my anus. The bleeding lasted for about few weeks, and stopped. Alas, that thing like cowpea seems to grow bigger. Since it grows, I concluded its tumor and it’s anal cancer. I’m an engineering student, with little medical and health knowledge. I know it’s best to seek doctor's attention in this situation, but coming from a broken home, raised by a single mum, struggling with ends-meet, I couldn’t afford medical treatment and I could not afford to put my mom in emotional distress, adding to what’s on ground. This is the first time I’m sharing this anywhere.
This cancer has caused me to lose almost half of my weight when I was just a teenager, now weighs little above 40kg. I also do not have appetite to eat like I used to.
I found Mayoclinic for solution. I’m from Nigeria, and I need help to get rid of this cause it causes me depression, inferiority, low esteem, poor concentration on my studies e.t.c.
I NEED HELP!
