Threadworm query

Patient : A few month ago i felt an itch on my anus and after ispection found a little white worm on toilet paper, i thought it was threadworm so took medication for it and carried out all the preventative methods, then the same thing happend again about six month later i found another one after felling a bit itchy , now im wondering if it is threadworm because it was not exactly thread like it was about an cm long and a mm thick and a white pearly in colour, im extreamly anxious that it could be tape worm with only finding the one and ive not had any itching other than the itch i had on finding the worm,please answer my question as i am really worried
