I have discovered a small lump right on the opening


Q: I have discovered a small lump right on the opening of my anus.

It is about the size of a pea and looks almost blue or black in colour.

It feels exactly the same as a pea – solid behind the skin covering it.

I am extremely worried as I don’t know what it is. It is very sore, especially when passing stools.
Initially it wasn't painful at all and now it is. Yesterday I got it little open using surgical blade and small amount of blood came out.
Do you know what it could be?

Symptoms:  Paining

A:   Thank you for writing to us

First of all, you should never open a lump up. If this was a direct connection into an artery, you would have lost a lot of blood through bleeding. I believe that you have a hemorrhoid and you need to see a Doctor to get it examined. Once diagnosed, the Doctor will advise you on the treatment. Wishing you a quick recovery. All the best.

Hope this helps you.
