my boyfriend has a stoma and last night while changing the bag we noticed he had two small white growths on the actual stoma. they were kind of bumpy, not round and soft, and he claimed they hurt a bit. does anyone know what this could be? please help, thank you!

Hi there, I don't know why he had the stoma in the first place but my ET nurse
warned me of this type of stoma problem. 1. from my Crohn's disease itself 2. trauma to the stoma..like just the rubbing of the bag, which is more apt if you wear jeans she said...my is located left of my belly button.
In anycase she said to call and be seen if this occurs.
I hope this can help him in some way..but he should have it looked at..Smile
Best to him~~~

hey, thanks so much for commenting. he has Crohn's as well, and his stoma is on the left too. I am hoping that one of those answers is the correct one, but like the nurse told you we will surely be visiting the dr. soon just to make sure. thanks again. take care

I'd love to know the answer to this as well. I have now and then had a small  white dot if you will on my stoma, however it has not been painful or at least not painful enough I really noticed it. I have also had dark red dots as well, like a blood blister type thing. Upon closer inspection they were not raised or blister like. I never really gave this much thought. I will have to look again tonight when I have my glorious bubble bath and soak away all my stresses of the day.
