Hard lump near the anus. Discolored stools. Treatment?

Hi I have just noticed today a firm slightly sore dark pea sized lump just outside my anus . I don t do any heavy lifting or recall any straining when going to toilet, the lump is firm but I have not noticed any discharge or anything from it. The only thing I have noticed is my poo is like an auburn colour which I have put down to my poor Xmas diet! Please can you help?

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

The lump outside the anus may be due to external hemorrhoid, sentinel pile, or due to infection like a wart.

Physical examination by the doctor will tell the cause for lump.

Stool examination by tests like microscopy, routine examination, and culture will find out the abnormality.

Consult the doctor for physical examination.

Hope I have answered your query.
