Hello,

Thanks for the question.

In view of details provided by you, it looks like he has got piles/hemorrhoids.Hemorrhoids are enlarged, swollen veins in the anus. Hemorrhoids can occur inside the anus (internal hemorrhoids) or outside of the anus (external hemorrhoids).

Since it is under the skin possibilities of genital wart and polyp are unlikely.

I guess he should see a surgeon sooner.Because piles can lead to rectal bleeding and can progress needing more aggressive treatment.

Hope this answers your question.

Regards.

Thank you Dr. XXXXXXX If surgery is needed, how long is the recovery normally? My husband is too embarrassed to call his doctor about this issue as well. How soon should we contact his doctor?

Thank you for your time

Thanks for the follow up question.

I don't think surgery would be first option in his case.There are multiple medical and minor surgical procedures which can help him.

With most treatments, he wont need hospitalization or long break from work.

In my view he should see doctor sooner.It's very common condition and doctor wont make him feel embarrassed. So ask him not be worried.

Hope this answers your question.

Regards.

I have a question about genital warts. my fiancé found out he has genital warts and we have not done anything due to the fact I have been scared of it but we have been sexual before we knew what it was. I have not shown any signs but on my pant line in the front I have noticed a big purple looking bump to me it looks more like the color of a bruise. my question is could it be a genital wart being up that high?
