Thanks for posting your query.

The lump could be,

>Infection and collection of some pus
>External piles
>Skin tag, which gets enlarged and painful due to friction

You are right, the condition is always disturbing.

The best thing you should be doing is visiting your doctor after examination will suggest some medicines as per need. Examination and treatment is required.

In mean time, please do the following which should help:

>Take light diet, avoid constipation
>Drink more of fluids
>Take analgesics that you are comfortable with to avoid pain and discomfort that you have.
>sit on soft surface
>Wear loose fitting clothes

I hope this helps.

Wishing you good health.
