This is sort of an embarrassing question...Recently I found out that there is something unusual just outside of my anus. It has grown like a pea. When I touch it, it is sort of hard but smooth red colour,and it hurts a bit. What should I do ?

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

It could be an abscess, boil or vesicle, lump. You need to consult a doctor to examine the region and perform a digital rectal exam based on the clinical suspicion. Treatment or diagnostic workup can involve a biopsy, proctoscopy or antibiotics course based upon the cause in consultation with your doctor.

Wishing you best of health

Thanks
