Hello, I know I have some warts or something around the outside of my rectum but recently I felt a bigger lump inside my rectum when I was wiping with a wipe. When I showered, I could feel it when I was clean there and it felt like a pimple about the size of a bb. I took a closer look today and it has an opening on the top and it sort of looks like you can pull the sides down and the inside will come out sort of like big pimple that you pop the top and it leaves a hole opening with the inside showing. Like another layer with the top opened up. Anyway, I was wondering if you know what it could be. It is along the top or should I in the inside about 1/2 an inch where it starts tightening and on the closes to my testicles direction. Thank you.
I just discovered this. I have an appointment with my regular doctor tomorrow (Monday 3/7/010). I know he will refer me to a specialist or something but we will see what he says. I thought maybe the doctors here would at least speculate as to what it could be but I guess not. I don't know if cancer has appeared like this before of if its just a cyst. Let me know if your husband sees a doctor and what that outcome is. I don't know if it is related to this but I get discomfort in what appears to be the lower intestine occasionally especially after bowel movement. Just discomfort no craps or sharp pains. Does your husband experience this too? Thanks
