Growing spot on the area between scrotum and anus, saw blood in stools, have piles. Any relation ?

I noticed a few weeks ago that i had a spot on the area between my scrotum and anus . As first i thought it was a spot but whilst showering yesterday a found that it has become a little larger (about 1-2mm). It seemed like a little flap of skin but it stuck out more, unlike a spot. I have had blood in my stools twice in the past 4 months. I sometimes suffer with piles (once in the past year) but i am sometimes tender after going to the toilet. Is this all related? The flap of skin does not hurt and feel uncomfortable. I check my testicles regularly. can you help?

Hi Stuwade,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
The flap or raised area of skin seems to be a chance finding and not related to the internal piles and the bleeding episodes. It can be a skin tag, a cyst, a papilloma, a lipoma etc.
Actually the problem has many possibilities so the best way is to get a local examination by a physician of your locality.
It as such does not seem to be a very serious problem.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
