I have a lump near my anus and its sore, it wasnt visible above the surface and just 2 weeks a go my doctor put me on metrodozinol!! tonight i checked it out cus it was a little painful and i noticed a black spot, when i checked it out it burst and is pouring blood? The lump did reduce slightly with the medication but in approx the last week has grown. i first noticed the lump on holiday back in August
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. Thereâs a possibility of the lump being due to haemorrhoids (piles) and hence will suggest you to consult a surgeon and get yourself examined. Hemorrhoids is the commonest cause of the lump in the anal area along with painless bleeding.
The other possibilities are of a boil or an anal fistula. My sincere advice is to get it evaluated from a surgeon.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
