Basically i've aquired, what i believed was a cut above my anus a good.. 6 months ago? it's never caused any pain, but i've always noticed blood on the paper after passing stools.
i've never been able to figure out where exactly this blood is coming from, but the other day in the shower i figured out it was roughly about an inch to 2" above my actual anus. It feels like a boil but doesn't hurt at all, and doesn't seem to bleed when i touch it.
However, i've noticed blood streaks on my boxers and, like i say, blood on the paper when i've been to the toilet. Also, since this has begun, i've noticed my backside sweats alot causing me alot of embarrassment with odour.
This is a really embarrasing problem, hence the reason i've come on here instead of going to the doctors. Like i say, it's not causing me any pain, slight discomfort at times when i've been on the move, but that's about it..
My main question is, is it a hemorrhoid? From what i've researched, hemorrhoids only appear around the actual anus, and this is above by at least an inch.
I'm quite concerned about this, and if anyone could offer any advice, i'd really appreciate it.
