| | Swollen anus?
Yesterday I had a hard time with a bowel movement, and today I noticed some discomfort when bending down/sitting/etc., so (sorry, this is gross) I checked, and there's a purple, swollen bulb back there. It's not a constant pain - if I go to sit down or something, it will only be painful for a few seconds and then I cannot feel anything more. I really do not want to go to the doctor about this...does anyone know what this could be? Thanks!
