Our expert says:
If it is a soft lump blue/purple coloured on the edge of the anus it is probably a hemorroid - you can treat it with Prep H until you see your Gyne. A hemorroid is a type of varicose vein and often is an inherited thing caused by straining when constipated or coughing or picking up heavy weights. It has no relationship with the menstruation you have ( which could just be a break through bleed - often caused by stress)
If it is a hard, red and very tender lump it could be an infection/abcess and you need to see your GP asap.
