Exclamation Bumps around Anus?

Okay I'm not sure if this belongs here or not but... For almost 2 years I've had these bumps near my anus and close to the opening. (I feel embarrassed about writing this) But I was diagnosed with IBS which I believed I took the medication and nothing really changed there (different story there) But my main concern is I've noticed that it itches in that area, there is discharge, and there has been bleeding.

I have it planned to call the doctor (since I finally have enough money to go to a doctor) and get an appointment.

What should I do?

Which doctor should I try and find?

Re: Bumps around Anus?

What you're experiencing could be hemorrhoids. They can develop inside and outside the anus. They can itch, burn, bleed, etc. If you want to go see a doctor, I would go to a colorectal surgeon. That's the area they specialize in. They will let you know what it is. Have you tried some Preparation H or some hydrocortisone cream? That can temporarily help with the itching. Good luck on what you decide to do.

Find a board certified colorectal doctor, that can diagnose and treat you properly.
