How can a bump near the anus be treated?

Posted on Fri, 9 Jun 2017 in Lump
Question: I have a palpable bump near anus I press it and it almost "deflates". It doesn't hurt but it's almost making it hard to have a bowel movement. I have pooped today but it took a minute.

Brief Answer:
Hemorrhoid likely, but need more inputs to focus precisely.

Detailed Answer:
I evaluated your query thoroughly .

* Seems like hemorrhoid type of lesion.

* Please provide some further inputs to focus in depth on the matter:
1. bowel movement you noticed was regular or altered than previous ones?
2. any bleeding in stool, itching around the anus?
3. deflates means it is going totally inside the body, how does it deflate?

4. exact location means on the edge of anus or how far, consistency of
bump like soft, tissue-like or hard, overlying skin redness / hot than other
region, the size roughly?

5. had noticed the similar thing in past?
6. any other systemic problem/medicines going on?

Thanks for using HealthcareMagic and giving me an opportunity to assist you in your medical needs.

Awaiting your details.
Regards dear.

Detailed Answer:
Alright , we consider this as possible anal wart .
* I am suggesting further management guidelines for you to get better results :
- manage diet in the way to get soft bowel movements

- Sitz bath ( sitting in a tub filled with lukewarm water for 10-10 minutes
morning & evening , specially after passing stool ) help a lot
- keep the area clean , dry
- local application of Podofilox ( Condylox ) cream 2-3 times a day
- use of systemic molecules are recommended on the basis of in person
evaluation by your Consultant Surgeon / Physician
