Hey, so this is my first ever post. I joined today as i really need some advise.
I'm going to start with a quick apology as this may be a little embarrassing and gross :/ so... SORRY
Well, I'm a 17 year old girl, who *touches wood* doesn't have many health issues. A few months ago, i noticed a small, hard lump just up inside me anus, about an inch in on the back wall. It's round in shape, about the size of a pea and is under the skin. Well, i presumed it was just a hemorrhoid and i intend on keeping an eye on it and visiting a doctor if it didn't go away. However, as the lump was painless and causing no problems at all, i totally forgot about it (stupid i know, don't judge me.) The other night, i discovered it for a second time and remembered about it. It is exactly the same size and it is still painless (apart from a little pressure when you press down but i'm guessing that pressing down on any part of your insides causes that sensation.) Curious about what it was, i decided to look online, BIG MISTAKE!!! I found out that quite a lot of people have experienced the same thing which was a little reassuring but i swear some people/sites are online just to scare people half to death. I'm going to get it checked out in the next few weeks, but my GP is almost impossible to get an appointment unless you book a few weeks in advance... ye it sucks (that should be a rather awkward doctors visit :/) I'm just looking for any advise, reassurance, or stories. Has anyone had the same thing and what was it? Could my problem be a hemorrhoid as i first thought?
Thanks and sorry again for being a little gross!
