Lump Near Anus

Hey, I am a 21 year old male, recently I found a lump near my anus. It is around where the muscle of my penis starts in my perineum and extends down near my anus. It is about 2 cm long and almost feels like a muscle or something. There is no pain, only when i touch it, it feels sore. I would like to know if it is something that can be treated on my own before I go to the doctor about it.

Piles
It sounds to me that you have whats called a pile, a small lump near the anus that is a less advanced form of hemmoroids. it is caused by straining and a blood vessel bursting resulting in a blood blister. Check to see its size and colour and exactly where its located. If it is about pea sized, purpleish brown or if its anywhere on the anus, then it is a pile and its nothing to worry about. If you have major concerns please consult a proctologist.
