Red face Dark bubble around the anus!!!

Hi, my boyfriend noticed about a week ago that a bubble appeared around the skin of his anus. It is dark, hard type of mass. It doesn't hurt or itch, and it's like a round smooth bubble.

Is this normal ? is it a cyst? what are the chances of being cancerous at an early age(24)? What type of treatment is normally used for this type of problem? and what type of doctor should he go to ? Dermatologist?

Please help him!!
Have a nice day

My guess is that it would be a boil, but if I remember right, it hurts like a pimple. Or it could be an insect bite. Or it could be something totally different He should go to a doctor for a proper diagnosis; I wouldn't worry about it too much until you know what's going on.
