I have a soft bump about the size of a kidney bean on/in my anal passage/sphincter area. It is soft almost squishy to the touch. There is no discharge of any kind of fluid. During bowel movements or even if I shift the wrong way while sitting causes a sharp painful sensation as if I had sat on a thumb tack. However the rest of the time I hardly notice it aside from the slight pressure it puts on the rest of my anus. Also while I can feel it on the surface I cannot see it when I look.
