Are Bumps Near The Anal Fissure Indicative Of An Anal Abscess?
31 year old male. I have a chronic anal fissure which has flared up. I put ditliazem on it, and I felt a little pea sized bump near the fissure. I am trying to figure out of it is an anal abscess or sentinel pile. This is the 2nd day of this...I am essentially pain free when i stand up, and I exercised at the gym with no problem. However, it does hurt to sit down, and pain comes on most a little bit after a bowel movement. It feels fine when I am on my feet. Other than that I feel fine.
Clinical examination should be done.
Thank you for asking at healthcaremagic.
I carefully read your question and understand your concern.
Firstly i would recommend you to visit a general surgeon or gastroenterologist and get it examined physically it could either be a hemorrhoid or a subcutaneous cyst or abscess.However abscess is usually associated with lots of pain and temperature around the area surrounding abcess is usually warm.Chances of it being a sentinel hemorrhoid are more .However things could be clear only after clinical examination of the growth.
Otherwise click a high resolution photo and try to attach with follow up.
Hope i was helpful.
Hello again my der patient,
Abscess are usually very painful and therefore i dont feel its abscess.
As its inside rectum chances are there that it could be a hemorrhoid.
Hypertrophied anal papillaes are very rare.
I would suggest you to thing of comon possibility first.
Hope you can understand that i can’t clinically examine you so my suggestion depends on just what i feel after going through your narration.
