Butt lump? Hurts when touched?

Okay.. So this is really embarrassing to say
But there's a lump near the opening of my anus, it's slightly red? But it only hurts slightly if I poke at it, and it doesn't hurt when I wipe.
It's about the size of a pea, and it used to itch but it doesn't anymore.

I'm worried and I'm too scared/nervous to talk to my mom about it...

Its hemorrhoid, drink atleast 6 glasses of water. Drink metamucil 2 to 3 times a day. Eat fruits, salads. Do enema gently everyday for easy paassage of stool. Lie on bed for 5mins facing down before bowel movemt. These are all to avoid constipation. Any further strain on anal wall will increase the size and pain of lump or hemorrhoid. Get good sleep. Don't sit in a position for more than 30mins continuously.

It will go away in 2 to 3 weeks if you take proper care.
