Ok this is going to sound extremely weird and unbelievably gross... But I was reading the newspaper this morning sitting in a normal chair when all of a sudden, it felt like there was a pin being shoved right into my buttcrack. I ran upstairs and looked.. And there is a small lump, the size of the first digit of your index finger, right outside my anus and it hurts like hell. Im only 16 years old so I have no clue what this could be. Any suggestions??
So what do I do??? Am I gonna have to have surgery or something, or will it just.. Go away eventually? A friend of mine suggested it might be a pimple of some sort, but ive never had a pimple down there before so I dont think it is. But they said if it is a pimple, im gonna have to pop it soon enough. I dunno who to believe!!!
The only person you can actually believe is your doctor, because only an exam is going to give you an exact diagnosis. You can alwaus discuss it with your parents who may also be able to tell exactly what it is.
If it is a hemorroid then you can purchase medication for it over the counter at any pharmacy and sometimes even in supermarkets. The cream shrinks the vein and provides pain relief.
Surgery is only used in extreme cases with longtime suffers and not someone your age.
It will go down overtime, but it can take from a week to 3 weeks.
Do not try to pop it regardless of what it is as doing some will only cause bleeding and open you up to a potential infection.
Hi all. I'm kind of having the same problem as kersch433, except in my case it's a lump right next to the anus (its external), and it looks kinda black. Its about the size of a pea, and it literall feels like there is a pea in this lump. It's almost like I can move it it around a little. It dosn't hurt when just sitting down, but it's discomforting when moving around. I'm an 18 yr old male. I'm kinda starting to get worried after reading all this stuff about anal cancer so I was wondering if anyone in here had any thoughts. I decided to post in here instead of making a new thread mainly because it sounded like it was on the same track as kersch433. Thanks in advance for your help!
I have the exact same problem as kersch.. About the size of a pea right around the opening of the anus. I'm also 16... Wondering what this is... If its and external hemeroid, how do these come about.. I cant think of anything that could cause this that i've done.. . It does hurt alot when preassure is applyed, and it came out of nowhere one day. I am going to go to my doctor soon but if anyone knows anything about this any information would be great
I'm not sure it's related to the topic of skin-cancer - but I don't know where else, so there we go.
Years ago I noticed that I have a small hole (approx. The width of a pencil) just above my anus. It's not a sphincter...It's just a hole. I don't know what it does or what it's there for, but I doubt it's dangerous.
Anyone know what it might be? Is it normal?
3 weeks after my son was born last year I noticed a very hard lump right near his anus. I took him to the hospital and they suggested I take him immediately to the childrens hospital to have it removed which I did. It turned out to be a cyst and the doctor told me that it is not that common in babies but it is more common in adults.
Queen of the may! It is 5:15 am and I usually go to bed around 10pm, put I think I finally figured out what is wrong with my boyfriend. It is very similar to what you described. Please check out this website. It is very informative and professional. I am only dismayed that it was so hard to find. I googled and googled. I finally gave up and went to altavista. That eventually led me to pilonidal sinus.
i really hope that this is not what you have, but knowledge is power. Good luck!
Ya mine is kind of strange, just at the top of my butt crack/lower back, but more in the crack at the top, there is a small bump and just under it is a tiny hole, about 2 inches above my anus, when I push on the bump this kind of clear blood like fluid drains from, what im assuming is the lump, does anyone kno what this could be? Im only 18 and I dont think its very likely getting cancer there...:p
it might help. And if any of these things are happening to you, the best thing to do is not worry. Go get yourself a drink and relax. It's not going to kill you. Many people have this or get it later in life. Infact, in ww2 over 80,000 soldiers got pilodinal cysts just from riding in jeeps because of the irritation it caused the area from the bumps.
Anyway, talk to your parents and then see a doctor. If you're experiencing discomfort/pain with any discharges, youll will probably need to get perscribed antibiotics or some topical ointments to help until they decide the best plan of action. Worst that can happen is you get it removed and get to watch cartoons on the couch for a few weeks.
As long as I can remember i've had a hole at the top of my arse crack and jsut thought it was a cut untill I showed my boyfriend and he told me it was a tiny hole, and sometimes it bleeds only a little though.
I recently found a lump just on the outside of my anus, and it is sore to put on any pressure even when standing awkardly.
I've told my boyfriend and he said it's proberly nothing but I dont know. I dont want to go to the doctor coz im too embara ssed.:oops:
could someone please help me out. I am only 17, do you think that the lump and the hole could be related?
Ok this is really weird as I was starting to freak out thinking that I was a freak or something with this problem. Im also 16 and have found a smal lump on my anus. It suddenly appeared a few days ago, I didn't notice it until I went to the toilet and was in immense pain. It is making it very painful for me to sit down, but when I do manage to sit down for a while I am unable to move. I'm usually very active and at the present time I am unable to do any sports or walk at all.
It is pink in colour, the same as the skin surrounding it and is the shape of a chocolate minstrel which looked like it is stuck in there.
I'm starting to get really worried now as I am too embassed to tell anybody even my parents. Does anybody have an idea about what it could be?
Yeah I have the same thing and mines been there for like a year and I just want it to go away has anyone been to the doctor yet....What did they say I mean I can't stop the bleeding like it will drain 6 times a day and im getting tried of it and I dont want surgery so some one please let me know whats goin on thanks
