blood around anus area


i have recently noticed blood on toilet paper, and when i inspected i found that there appears to be a red spot up above my anus (further up towards my back), and im not usre what it is.
i think anal fissures are near the anus and this is more than 1 and a 1/2 inches from my anus.
i was conerned when i realised that it could actually be a piercing of the skin, and, when pressure is applied, i can feel the bone there (pelvic i think). that is an idea of the locaton.

as for why, i dont know. i dont recall ever knocking there, no anal experiences. any help appreciated.
also, the blood is coming out during the day, and there is blood on my underwear at the end of the day. (could it be from washing the anal region with a harsh soap or something?)

Re: blood around anus area

Well all I can say is that it is normal to occasionally see blood on your toilet paper. ;-) It happens to most of us occasionally and is it could be just a minor cut or scratch. BUT, the fact that it actually bleeds so much that you see blood on your underwear at the end of the day kind of disproves my point....So I really don't know....

I would goto the sexual clinic, to see if it may be a STD (Sexually Transmitted Dicease) Better to be safe than sorry

Re: blood around anus area

It is most likely something called a Pilonidal cyst. Do a search on it and you will get more info.
As far as I know, it really needs some medical attention, especially if it's bleeding.

ok, thanks for youre help and suggestions. i have self-diognosed it as a Pilonidal cyst. I'm already on antibiotics for something else, so it's not infected. damn this! doctor for me. thanks again. anon.
