I have a purple bump that is tumor like on

Patient: I have a purple bump that is tumor like on my anus and the rest is purple and inflamed, is there any chance this could be cancerous or should I just wait for a change. It’s been like this for a couple months now. Do I need to see a doctor and how immediate do I need to. Additional information, I am a 15 year old male, I am not sexually active, I do smoke cigarettes. I’m very scared about this and need to know what to do.
