Question: Painful Bump on Anus
|jarntz - Mon Mar 31, 2008 9:37 am|
I have a bump about the size of a pea in the area around my anus. it is skin colored and painful. not very painful, just painful to the touch. I wear thongs and they seem to make it more painful because they are constantly rubbing on it. What could it be?

One of the conditions that comes to my mind that causes pain, itching, burning and sometimes bleeding and appears as a lump in the anal area is hemorrhoids. This is an enlargement of veins in the rectal area that become inflamed due to causative factors such as constipation, straining, pregnancy, etc. I would encourage you to have an evaluation by your physician to identify the causative factor. Best wishes.
