Bump above anus, growing in size, passing excessive gas. Causes and cure?

So there s a bump above my anus . I really don t know what it is. for the past two days I ve been thinking that I need to poop, but it ends up just being gas. Yesterday the bump or lump was barely noticeable, but today it got a bit larger. I kept on thinking that it was a hemorrhoid . I really need some advice on how to treat it.

Hi Kunt,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that the swelling you are feeling is a hemorrhoid.
A clinical examination is needed to confirm the diagnosis.

Following precautions will be helpful :-
1. Avoid spicy/oily foods.
2. Eat fibre rich foods.
3. Sitz bath is helpful.
4. You can take stool softeners or laxatives, if constipated.

You can apply locally cream containing calcium dobesilate and xylocaine.
Surgical removal can be opted if it is associated with pain or with bleeding.

I hope this helpful to you.
