Lump On/In Anus :(

Hi, im new here but i have a qustion to ask. I noticed the other day that when i was sitting down at my computer i felt a small pain on my anus hole and i didnt think much of it, but the day after that it was kind of itchy for no reason so i checked in the mirror and i noticed a small lump right on the ring of my anus and also going into it, it dosent hurt when i touch it and its soft it kind of feels like a blister? its not black or anything its normal skin color, also i when i go to go to the washroom i find it hard to push it out and when it comes out my poo is smaller. im only 17 and im really scared about this im losing sleep and i have really bad anixety! any help would be great and i can awsner qustions.

Sounds like a hemmoroid. Try some preperation H, an over the counter creme to help stop the itching and the swelling. It may bleed a little also. Good Luck

Re: Lump On/In Anus :(

I would pretty much guarantee Linda is right. It sounds exactly like a hemorrhoid which can form at any age. I would try the Prepartion H, some cool moist wipes folded and placed over it, as well as get more fiber in your diet. The more straining and pushing you do while having a bowel movement, the puffier and irritated it will get. They are caused by constipation as well as other things. But, importantly you need to cure the constipation to help as well as not form more of them. If they get raw, Linda is correct they can bleed. I would stop freaking out now and just try to relax and treat something that is very common. I probably had my first around that age.
