Hey all I am new here. I'm 25 years old and about 4 days ago I noticed a lump above my anus. Its about ( ) that big, maybe a little smaller. Its pink, like a pimple, and smooth. Doesn't hurt or anything. Just worried and want some assurance lol. Don't really want to go to the doctor since its a little embarrassing. I'm thinking it may be a perianal abscess or something.
Lump above anus
Hi, kl204! And welcome to A2A. I can't answer your question (be patient--others will), but I want to admonish you never to put off seeing a doctor because of embarrassment. Doctors have seen it all and, for some things, waiting can be deadly.
Perianal abscesses are described as invariably painful. Could it be a haemorrhoid - is it on the anus itself, or just nearby?
