Brief Answer: Hemorrhoid. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. Itching lump near the anus is most likely a hemorrhoid. Especially if it is attached to the verge of anus. You may also have trace of blood in the stool or on the toilet paper. If this lump is painful, you may have a blood clot in it or an inflammation. As the main cause of hemorrhoids is constipation and bad diet, you should start with diet improvement and avoid constipation. Please do not push hard on stool. Increase fiber rich products and mineral water intake. Probiotic should be started. You should also have sitz baths with Oak Bark and use suppositories for hemorrhoids. Such treatment should give a relief in few days. If not, you should consult proctologist. As you are over 50, you should also get scheduled for colonoscopy. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
