Sounds like you have an external hemorroid, some people call them a pile.

It is basically a swallon and inflamed blood vessel, which will be very painful when placed under pressure and when you go to the toliet.

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!

going to your doctor want change what it is or isn't.

I think your mother is right, it is most likely a pile.

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?

Lump Near Anus
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.

Anus Holes, Bumps, Ets.
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!

Hey everyone

please read this topic

http://ehealthforum.Com/health/topic36616. Html


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.

Best of luck and take it easy

Lump On Anus
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?
