I sent 2 pics via email. Like I said it's a oblong lump outside and as my finger goes into anus it feels like a hard rope. Also feels like a thick wall. The lump is on my right just above anus. When you touch the lump just right if feels very sensitive.

Hi,
I saw the photos you have uploaded.
The lump you have mentioned looks like external hemorrhoids.

I hope that answers your question.

Hello...went to the surgeon today. I have a perianal abscess. He said to change eating habits and soak in sitz bath. This sound ok? Safe? It bleed last weekend a little bit and possibly drained. He said it's nothing to worry about.

Hi,
If it is abscess, it has to be drained promptly.
Discuss about it with your doctor.
