User :   Hi there, i found a hard pea sized lump on my anus which is blue in color and a little sore, the lump is under the skin and is really hard to the touch is this a hemmoroid ?
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   Dr.xxxx here
User :   hi how are you
Doctor :   the chances of hemorrhoids cannot be ruled out with the description that you are giving
Doctor :   do you have any other symptoms?
User :   no not that i have noticed, just the small lump just inside anus
Doctor :   ok. does it pain or bleed when you pass hard stools?
Doctor :   is there belching, or flatulence, or chest burning sensation associated?
User :   mild pain when passing hard stools
User :   none of the other symptoms
Doctor :   ok. then I would suggest you to get it examined by a doctor or a general surgeon to find out what it is du eto
Doctor :   does it seem to get pushed out when your are passing stools?
User :   yes just slightly as it is small
User :   whats most likely-hemmoroid?
User :   is there a natural cure?
Doctor :   yes, it could be, as I said, your description of it does point towards hemorrhoids but it needs to be confirmed by doing proper examination
Doctor :   since I am not examining you, I am not able to say the exact diagnosis
Doctor :   the cure consists of operating it if it is big and causing symptoms, or leaving it alone
Doctor :   and maintaining diet changes like high fibre containing foods
Doctor :   and drinking a lot of water
User :   ok thats fine, so there is a chance it might just go away with a better diet ect
User :   while its small i might just monitor its size
Doctor :   ok. yu can monitor size and symptoms both
Doctor :   and look for worsening
Doctor :   report to doctor immediately if there is bleeding or pain when passing motion
User :   can creams help hemmroids at this stage?
Doctor :   for examination to look for extent of problem and for treatment
User :   or only calm symptoms?
Doctor :   if you are not having any symptoms then creams will not be necessary. if pain develops, then you might need prescription f or local anesthetic cream to be used before and after going for stools
