Hi, I have this hard lump by my anus probably the size of a small coin. It doesn't really hurt apart from the occasional twinge. It does not ooze and there is no head on it. It doesn't actually stick out from my skin but I can feel it underneath. I have had it a while and thought it would go but it has not, should I be worried?
Sorry for the delayed post!
I hope you gonna read it!
The bump you have is probably a sebaceous cyst, extremely common growth and probably most of us will have a few over the course of our lives but they resolve spontaneously.
Usually, it is a firm, round, mobile, flesh-colored bump that is painless.
Sebaceous cysts of the genitals are less common, but, can be seen in perineum, the area between vulva and anus.
Thanks for the reply. It actually seems to have decreased in size since my last post. However, I have developed another more painful lump near the vulva, but I think this might just be a spot? I do get a lot of spots in that area but I don't know if it is something else and if I should be worried?
Can, you, please, more closely describe the painful lump you have near the vulva?
Is it located in the lips of vulva that cover the vaginal opening?
Does the pain occur with walking, sitting, physical activity, or sexual intercourse?
Normally, there are small glands located on each side of the opening to the vagina, known as Bartholin's glands.
If a a blockage of one of the Bartholin's glands or it's duct develop, this will lead to a swollen fluid-filled lump or Bartholin's gland cyst.
When infected, the cyst will get symptomatic (pain that occurs with walking, sitting, physical activity, or sexual intercourse; fever and chills; swelling; drainage)
Also, this could be just an ordinary pimple or spot.
I have a very painful bump near my anus that when I touch it feels very hard and some of the surrounding area as well. This thing hurts when i walk or sit down. I do have problems with bowels movements and hemmoriods as well. I have no medical insurance and do not know what to do.
Hi, I just recently discovered a lumb near my anal opening. Two days prior, my anus was sore, just on the right side...where the lump has formed. During this time, it was painful to sit or even use the muscles in this area. Now, the pain has pretty much gone....and the lump has formed....any ideas on what this could be?
I'm a 23 year old male
There is no real pain when I press on it
Hi Ploo and welcome to ehealth: You could very well have a Hemorrhoid...They will act up every now and then....Really nothing to worry about unless they start bleeding and then the best thing to do is to soak them...If it gets bigger or you get concerned see your physician...Take care...
