Something hard inside the skin of anus. Should I worry ?

I was shaving my vital parts when I noticed something, I could feel something hard inside the skin of my anus . It s like a fat thing which I could feel only after I pressed the skin. It s not protruding outside or the skin does not have any change in color. It doesn t even hurt. Is it something that I have to worry about

Hi Lakshmi,
Thanks for writing in.
I don't think you need to worry. It could be an enlarged vein or even a lipoma. I think you should be having a high fibre diet and lots of water. try and include plenty of fruits and vegetables. Also use a lot of whole grains which will also help.
Nothing needs to be done at this time.
Hope that helps
