Lump outside anus


Q: I have found a marble sized lump just outside my anus. It is sensitive at the moment but there is no blood or discharge but it does feel soft and sensitive. I have felt it before but it was small and not painful so didnt ccause any problems. It is the same colour as surrounding skin and can barely be seen only felt. It is under the skin and hasnt had any effect above the skin. It only began hurting the past 2 days and seems a bit swollen. I eat alot of spicy food so i'm not sure if that could have effect. Please can you advise on what it could possibly be and how to treat it?
