Patient : I have a new boyfriend and I noticed that he has a patch of what looks like extra skin completly surrounding his rectum. It is almost a purple in color and it is very rigid. It is not smooth at all. He told me that a doctor put it there but he doesn't know why. Can you explain to me what this is?
