Skin colored pea-sized lump in the anus, no pain or discomfort on walking, sitting. What could it be?

Hi, I m a 19 year old male, I wanted to know what u thought of something. I have a pea sized, skin colored little lump u can say, in my anus . It dosent hurt at all,using the bathroom, sitting, walking, even if I touch it, no pain. It s like 2inches in, in middle of anus. It s been there for a while now, I d say more then a month, I keep forgetting to make an appointment for doctor and it is a little embarrassing to ask, it s also very embarrassing when being intimate with my partner. Please if you have any suggestions let me know.

Please relax. This seems like a minor problem. It may be a painless hemorrhoid, which is asymptomatic. However, please do not neglect it. Make an appointment with the general surgeon, get it examined once.

It should be gone soon.

Talk to your partner about it, she will support you.

Get well soon.

Thanks for writing in.
I do understand but I think we are just looking at a tag of skin and nothing else. There is nothing that we need to actively do about it. However, if you are extremely embarrassed, you can definitely get it removed. It would be a simple surgery where we can just remove it with a cautery or by just cutting off the tag of skin.
Dont worry.
Hope this helps
