piles/hemmroids?

I am 20 years old and have a bluish/purple thing on the outside of my anus. It is painful, especially when I sit or touch it. Is this a pile?How do I treat this without surgery? It freaks me out to know that I am young and have a pile. What are the causes of piles/hemmroids? And how can I prevent myself from getting more piles?
Regards

It definately sounds like a pile/hemorrhoid. Please refer to the following link for detailed information about hemorhoids: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemorrhoid
