Lump on anal opening

Dear Doc,

I today discovered (in the shower) a " lump"  - or more of a hanging piece of flesh (sorry dont know how else to describe it) at the entrace to my anus. there is no pain but am really worried about this - it is quite large.

Dont know if any relation to this but for the past few months i have been getting large lumps on my bottom (on the cheecks) which are very hard, purple and so sore I cannot sit. They go away by themselves after awhile but then come back again (I remember my late Mom used to get them too).

I am so embarrased to go to the doctor with this so please help!!!

Many thanks.

Thank you for visiting

It sounds like a pile and unfortunately, you will have to consult a doctor to have it surgically removed. If you do not get this removed, it can become hardened and very painful. The doctor will also prescribe anti-biotics for the hard pimples on your bum.

Kind regards
