Lump on anus under skin, pops out on pushing with muscles. Smoker, no STDS. Suggestion?

i have had a lump on/in my anus that i noticed three days ago. i checked it today, and it has gotten slightly bigger since. the lump is sort of in my anus, but when i push with the muscles (like i am passing a stool ) in my anus, the lump pops out. it is under the skin, maybe a little bigger than a pea, it is normal skin color, and there is no white or black head on it like a pimple . the lump is only slightly painful when i wipe. i am an 18 year old male, i am a smoker, and i have have only had sex with one partner who has never had sex with anyone else, so that rules out sexually transmitted infections. i am a bit worried and would really appreciate feedback from an actual doctor because im a little embarrased to go to the hospital about it. thank you very much for your time.

General Surgeon 's  Response
Thanks for posting your query.

First of all, do not be embarrassed by meeting a doctor for your problem, at all. Doctors try their level best to ease anxiety and treat patients.

You seem to be suffering from haemorrhoids most probably grade 1. I would suggest you consult a surgeon near you as only after examination the final diagnosis can be made.

And do not worry, your problem doesnt seem to be a major one if treated at appropriate time. So do consult a surgeon near you.

Take care
