I just turned 23 and the other day I noticed while taking a shower that i have a little bump on the anus on the hole. It is a little soar when you touch it but it almost feels like an enlarged vien. Im not sure what it is. can you please help me with some ideas of what it can be. I suffer from major anxiety and this new discovery doesnt help me at all.
While your description suggests that this is most likely an external hemorrhoid, it is not possible to make a specific diagnosis over the internet. You should, therefore, make an appointment to have your physician examine this lesion, and provide a specific diagnosis for you.
