Post Lump/bubble on anus

Ive felt some stinging resently on my anus when I go to the bathroom or just sometimes when lying in bed. I have had no bleeding. I discovered a lump or bubble like groth from the outside ring of the anus going inwards slightly covering the hole. I felt it recently and it feels like some kind of puss filled growth, like a zit. Im not really sure it is one though, I squized it to feel if it could be popped, but then I decided not to cus it could get infected being down there around feces. What do you think it is?

Im having a doctor appointment Aug 9. Ive had this for about a week should I have it checked sooner.

sounds like a hemmorroid, which is a swollen vein in the anus. They're common, and usually harmless, although they can get inflammed and itchy from time to time.

Definatly a hemmeroid. Did you know 1 in 3 people suffer from hemmeroids? (Do the other 2 enjoy it?)
